The Friday Fictioneer Challenge: Write a 100-word story based on the photo.
“Anything from Mrs. Kravitz?”
“Nothing. Everyone else on her street saw or heard the shootout but she saw absolutely nothing! She has these fancy-schmancy glazed windows blocking her view. Her husband had them installed, she told me, to keep her from being nosy. I don’t think she likes them.”
As the detectives drove away, the neighbors heard the sound of breaking glass. They had created a betting pool to see how long the glazed windows lasted with Gladys, who had made it her business to know everyone else’s business. Her neighbor from across the street, Darrin Stephens, won the pool.
With thanks and apologies to Gladys Kravitz of Betwitched (1964-1972).
