Write a one hundred word story that has a beginning, middle and end. (No one will be ostracized for going over or under the word count.

Here’s the link if you would like a go…

“Whose bike is that anyway? It’s been there for days.”

 “No idea. Did you manage to get hold of the exterminator? The smell from the cellar is getting worse, bound to be something dead down there.”

 The rats nibbled at fingers and toes. The body squeezed behind the large deep freeze oozed dark fluid.

 “Good morning, Dan the Exterminator at your service. Where’s this smell then?”

 Police tape surrounded the café a couple of hours later. The bicycle’s owner found at last.

I enjoyed this exercise – now the characters are in my head I’ll expand the story.



  1. Dear Mandy,

    As I said, a nicely told grisly tale. Welcome to Friday Fictioneers.

    I do respectfully request that you confine your story to your blog page in the future.




  2. Good effort Mandy. Hmmm…one wonders what did actually happen.


  3. Please do!
