Never tell the truth when a lie will

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.

Flipping a coin, I snatched it mid rotation winking at the kid watching. I had him enthralled. An apprentice would be nice. “Never tell the truth when a lie will—” The words closed off as the rope jerked around my neck.

“Do,” a voice hissed. The pressure released as quickly as it’d come. The rope burned as it was yanked away.

Turning, I grabbed at my knife. A futile gesture considering who waited. Enforcer Jeree herself. Heh. I hadn’t expected her to discover my directions deception so fast.

“But who decides when?” she drew her misericorde as she spoke.

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.
