Friday Fictioneers for June 3rd 2022

Happy June, y’all. Today our friend, Lisa Fox, purveyor of dao and Daoism, productive blogger extraordinaire, unafraid of flair and finer hints of purple, partners up with Mistress Rochelle to present an interesting photo to stimulate our story telling senses and to help us with a one-hundred-word escape plan.

Click on Lisa’s pic to escape on over to Rochelle’s page to see how it’s done.



Genre: Fiction
Title: Boys in the Belfry
Word count: 100


After the Army, we snagged this great side-hustle with awesome pay and bennies.

I remember telling Jimmy.

“Wait until he’s halfway down the ladder. Empty your clip up his ass. Get the picture and ear. We meet Warren in the belfry at eight.”

Jimmy said, “No problemo, Mister Sunshine. You be careful chasing him. He’s a bad one.”

I walked to the front, checked the address, banged on the door, and yelled, “State Police. We have a warrant!”

A lovely lady opened the door. I heard muffled shots. “I’m sorry, Ma’am. Wrong address.”

I turned and walked to the church.


Look both ways for an entry and exit.
Mind the gaps in the escape.
And remember, cops never knock.

  1. First off, thank you so much for the flourished nod, my friend. I’m blushing!

    About the story, I think a lot of ex-soldiers end up transitioning back in those kinds of side jobs. Some even survive beyond them. Sharp writing, Bill.

  2. Dear Bill,

    That’s quite the side job. Perhaps they should find another side job…one that’s a little safer. 😉 Pools are always on the lookout for good lifeguards. 😉 Good writing as always.

    1. Oh, Rochelle, you’re so right.

      But killing pays much better than saving. However, I did read that pools in our area are facing a serious lifeguard shortage.




  3. I don’t think taking a shot of church is gonna clear any conscious… Always harder when the target has someone sweet answering their door!
    Excellent take, sir!
