A Midnight Painted In A Sin – 100 Word Microfiction Short Story

I entered a short story competition that required me to write a 1000 word short story in 48 hours. The story needed to meet three things, a genre (Crime Caper), a location (A shrine) and an object (A cash register). It took me a while to find the right idea and to get it to work in a way I was happy with. But like the last time I entered something similar, I enjoyed the desire to find the story that sparked the right way for me. So, for the sake of creativity, here is 1 of the 24 rejected stories in a 100 word format..

A Midnight Painted In A Sin

“You should’ve kept driving.” She says softly, as she stares down the barrel of the shotgun.

“Bet you say that to all the boys,” Jones says with a laugh.

“My Daddy doesn’t let me talk to any boys.”

“The old perv kept you to himself then, did he?”

She stares deathly at Jones. “My father is a man among children, and this house, his house, is a shrine to everything he stands for. The sins he’s buried beneath the floorboards outweigh the pennies we collect in the cash register. So if I was you, I’d run, and I’d run now!”
