The List

Half the names on the list had already been crossed off

What is WonHundred Word Wednesdays? It’s when a group of amazing authors and I write 100 word stories all based on the same short prompt and post them. All the variations are fun to read.

“This is a joke.” I said throwing the paper back at them. They’d proposed targets, but half the names on the list had already been crossed off.

The pair exchanged a confused glance. “A joke? We’re earnest.”

I scowled. “Serious enough to show me a list someone else has worked on. The ink doesn’t match between the writing and eliminations.”

“They were unable to complete the job.”

“And you were stupid enough not to just write me a new list. Now you’re going to be honest and tell me why they couldn’t complete the job. Then I’ll consider your offer.”

Don’t forget to read the other’s takes on the prompt. More stories go up throughout the day. Be sure to check our page on Facebook for updates as everything becomes available: WonHundred Words.
