Blackmail, Cheaters and a Honey Cruller
The morning post brought shock. A blackmail letter demanding 100,000 dollars or the police would find out about the pastry incident and Sid the weatherman. I crumpled the note, knowing I’d pay.
I closed my eyes. This blackmailer must possess the missing video of the encounter. Every sordid detail from what we did with the chocolate éclairs and the leather chaps to my stuffing a honey cruller down his throat to choke him to death for cheating on me.
Of course, after the murder I discovered Sid taped everything. I thought I was safe, and then the tape went missing...
You get a blackmail letter. It says, "I know what you did to the weatherman. Pay me $100,000 or I'll go to the cops and tell them about the pastry incident."
What did you do with the weatherman? And what was the pastry incident?
Your story may be serious or lighthearted or as silly as you like so long as it is 100 or fewer words.
