I have kinda started a story linked with both prompts, about two characters and their dialogue! I find crime writing very interesting and there could be a lot of scope with the chararcters.
I literally have wrote this in fifteen minutes, in between getting home from a busy day at school and cooking my sons tea and going out to the pub. So sorry it isn’t more extended, basically short, but it gives you an idea, and maybe you can come up with your own conclusions about what has happened. Enjoy! X
Inspector Hill heard the footsteps coming down the echoey corridor. ‘Ok she’s on her way, keep it cool’ he thought to himself. The door swung opened and there she finally stood, the one that had nearly got away. The inspector was surprised on how small she was, quite frail looking really, older than he was expecting. Her head hanging down, grey streaked hair covering most of her face, not quite being able to see her eyes. Clothes baggy, not fitting. Hands dangling in the oversized cuffs.
“Sit down”, the inspector ordered, pointing to the chair.
She shuffled over and eased herself down, head not rising.
“Have to been read your rights?”, the women didn’t speak.
“Have you been read your rights?” He repeated.
“Yes”, finally came an answer.
“Do you want your solicitor present?”
“The prisoner waves their right to a solicitor” speaking into the recorder.
“Ok, let’s start at the beginning, you said in your first statement that on the night of October the 3rd you were woken by your husband making, quote ‘funny’ noises next to you, is this correct?”
“Then, when you put the light on and looked over to him he was covered in blood, is this correct?”
“Yes, but I ….”
“You pulled the bed clothes off of him and you noticed there was blood coming out of his stomach, did you try to stop the bleeding? why did you not call for an ambulance as soon as you discovered he was injured?, why..”
Suddenly rising to her feet, slamming her hands on the table, looking the inspector straight in the eye, “I did, you don’t understand, I don’t know what happened, I was asleep, one minute I was going to sleep next to my husband, the next I am sleeping in a pool of blood”.
You’ve a talent for crime writing! I like that it’s short (and it’s certainly interesting, I want to find out what happens next!). Also like the name of your blog and the picture!
Well thank you so much for your kind words! I don’t think Im any good at writing, I’m good at short because I have a low concentration span. I don’t really know what could happen next, I was just trying to think of an interesting way to have a conversation. X
I like this tale! It’s short but descriptive!
Thank you! X
Your going to the pub line got me, great post also. Thanks for dropping by, this writing lark is catching.
Thanks for the lovely comment! I quite like this writing lark too x
Quite suspenseful! I look forward to seeing where you’re going with this one (if you choose to continue). I like watching crime shows like NCIS and Criminal Minds, so my mind went crazy with the possibilities regarding the mystery.
So as to not influence your storytelling, I will not share those thoughts here, but rest assured: I am hooked. PLEASE FINISH! 😀
Thank you for your kind comment! I would like to carry on with it when I get time! Not really sure where to go with it but I will make a plan x
Hi Queenie! I’m loving the start of this story! I hope you continue it. I’m so far behind in the challenge, that I’m only now getting into Day six and seven’s writings. 😦 Hoping to catch up soon. I’m definitely coming back to check on the progress of this story. If you have a little spare time, consider taking the online class I’m now taking at the Open U (Future Learning) on Forensics… great for mystery writing! http://www.futurelearn.com. It already started, but we’re only in week 2! Good luck! Eva
Thank you so much for your nice comment!
I haven’t done anymore challenges yet because I have just been so busy! I would like to carry on with this story, but have never written anything long before. I will have a look at that link you sent me, it sounds interesting! X
