He felt broken. Battered. Alone.

No one believed him.

There was no body.

But there was a criminal.

Out there. A murderer.

He was sure of it.

Someone had to deliver justice.

Each week we are given a set word count for a piece of micro fiction, and a quote from a book that must be included in the story. This week’s quote to be included was ‘But there was a criminal’ and the word count was 33.

Read other stories based on the prompt HERE.

  1. The MC is all alone without clues or evidence and only his instincts with him. That desperation would make for a great story arc. The staccato sentences add a lot to the scene as well. Good one, Iain. Glad to have you onboard with #MicroMondays.
