Thriller and Suspense: Deb’s 42 Words

She had little to go on:
sparkly jacket by the wall,
black loafers here
and there,
a single
white
glove.

“Well, Annie,” a voice cooed, “Are ya okay? Are ya okay, Annie?”

She ran, certain she’d been hit by a smooth criminal.

    Nice, quirky left field look at a prompt. Ain’t the human mind weird and wonderful?

    Clever. I’m a big fan of Michael Jackson’s music (saw him perform in person a few times – first time when he was 12 in the Jackson 5 – magic). I recognised your references immediately.
