Three Word Wednesday CLXXXVI: ebb, random, negotiate
His anger began to ebb as he traced the random pattern of bruises left by the hammer.Â â€œYou must not have gotten my memo.â€ He said to the battered corpse.Â Negotiations were over.Â He won. Time to celebrate.
Oh dear! This was a definite case of cutting to the chase!
lol – I believe so!
WHOA! Packs a powerful punch — no pun intended. 😉
Wow. Short and…well, not exactly sweet, but you know. You’ve been reading too many of Thom G’s stories, LOL! Nice job.
Short, but the point perfectly hammered home.
You know I think we have all wondered if we could be a cold blooded killer like him
Very short, very dark and very good.
Wow.. Intense.. You scare me.. Lol
Thanks everyone and Ralph – I’m really not that scary 🙂
That’s one way to get your point across. When words fail, there’s always the hammer. Excellent work, very sharp and clean writing.
Very nice. Short and dark…well done
Ah? WOw.. Point well taken! 😉
Well. Ouch. Darn. Well. Someone won. Nice work!
Phew, this gives me flashbacks! Negotiating with a hammer!
I think I’ll read memos from now on…
Atwood’s wicked sister’s been cooped up too long. I suppose you needed to let her out of the coop. I “like” how he’s “reading” the corpse with the hammer, like a pointing finger.
I always enjoy these dark pieces. I’m not sure what I should be more worried about – that they come from my mind or that I enjoy them! Thank you everyone for your comments – I’m loving these word prompts!
