6 Feet Under

Friday Fictioneers!

Every week, we get a chance to write a 100-word story about the photo prompt shared by Rochelle. This week, it seems that we have a photo taken from her own collection. Check more takes on the prompt why clicking here.


Old Rick wanted the farm to be ready for sowing by next month. He always wanted a small vegetable farm. When this guy was willing to give his for a steal, Rick grabbed the opportunity. So what if the guy seemed a little shady, who doesn’t have a few skeletons in their closet!

Rick called the police and told them what he found when he dug the ground. Apparently, that guy did not believe in putting the skeletons in closets. After the call, Rick started crying. 20 years ago, his teenage son was last seen playing around this farm.

  1. What a clever piece of writing! I love how you write “Apparently, that guy did not believe in putting the skeletons in closets.” Aha! I said to myself. Nice witty line. I smiled. Then you hit me with the last line. The humour both disguised and emphasised the horror of your twist.
    Well done!

    1. I can’t tell you how glad I am that you liked it so much. I love ending with twists but it do not always go the way I want. I’m happy it worked this time. Thanks!
