Default Prompt #43 - The Shopping Trip From Hell


I wasn't expecting so much excitement at nine o'clock on a Monday morning. There I was just out for the last of our holiday shopping before Jo and I left for home after a fortnight in Brighton. I’d strolled through the automated doors, just about filled my shopping basket and stood 3rd in line at the checkout.

The girl, spider thin and fiddling with her hair, was flirting, would you believe it, flirting with a lanky boy – torn jeans and greasy hair.

I said, 'Excuse me, but....'

And found myself looking down the barrel of a gun. Lanky Boy's eyes glazed over, his lips creased into a half smile. Never, have I had such a shock. Jolted me it did. I fell forward. I felt my hand hit his face, heard her cry as the bullet caught her. I could see the blood oozing.

Silly young thing shouldn’t have been fidgeting like that.
