The old woman turned and smiled

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. Here is my entry for the week.

My head snapped up as a frantic shout rang out above the markets noise. “Thief! Thief!” The shifting crowd kept the crier from my sight. “Where is the thief?”

The man next to me, a giant likely, glanced at me and back to the scene. Guards emerged headed straight for me.

“Come with us, thief.”

“No.” My hands raised in denial as they reached for me. “I’ve stolen nothing.”

“You were identified.”

“By whom.”

I barely registered their response as I spotted the figure behind them. I knew her too well. The old woman turned and smiled, taunting. Cursed thief.

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.
