Friday Fictioneers Challenge: Write a 100-word story based on the photo prompt.
The truck was parked in the same place, day after day. No one’s using it. It’s a sign I should take it, Jean-Michel thought.
Late Friday afternoon, he returned to the parking lot. In minutes, he broke in, hooked up a portable battery charger and hotwired the truck. Maybe there’s something valuable in the back, he thought, ever hopeful.
As Jean-Michel drove around a sharp curve, the truck’s cargo door swung open. In the police cruiser just behind, two officers saw something fall out: human, bloody, and wrapped in industrial cellophane. It’s a sign, they said, turning on the siren.
