Kristian is the host of 50 Words Thursday this week .

So, now to this week’s challenge:

  • The Story must be between 50 and 250 words, in 50-word increments. (so 50, 100, 150, 200 or 250 words)
  • Link back to this post with the tag 50WordThurs so that everyone can find it, or post your response in the comments below.

So here is the picture for this week:


“… after that, he had to make his way all down the parade to the West Pier” – Brighton Rock, Graham Greene.


Rows of tiny shacks at the beach looked deserted. And why not, it was winter after all. The time for him was perfect. He forced open the lock in the nearest hut and hit the stash of drugs there . after that, he had to make his way all down the parade to the West Pier, where he already had a couple of buyers lined up. He wanted to make sure that they weren’t undercover cops before he showed them the merchandise. But he was arrested just outside the door. The cops had him in their sight for a long time.


Word count; 100

  1. Add to that possession with intent to sale charge, a charge of breaking and entering and I am gonna bet resisting arrest, and your protag is up the proverbial creek without a paddle. Which incidentally would have been of no use to him, (assuming he is a him) whatsoever in the winter anyway, unless he used to to swing on one or more of the arresting officers, and that my friend would have added a pesky assault on law enforcement charge which carries the penalty probably stiffer than the other two combined….
    Humph.. I was having a pesky case of writers block till I got here this morning.. Thank you Sadje for loosening up my gears….
