Uncovering the Truth

The tractor rumbles past the security checkpoint. Since January, the unknown occupants, residing in the sprawling white mansion, have spun a sticky web over the once quiet town. Tom Nash, the popular morning radio personality, hammers non-stop encouraging speculative gossipers to air their concerns, hopefully, to divulge the truth soon.

“What’s going on folks? Police investigations found nothing suspicious.”

Tom’s phone lines open to frantic callers.

“The hay bales are illegal on residential property…
…every day, odd deliveries, weird noises and the stench…”

Then, Tom’s estranged daughter calls.

“Dad,“ she screams, “Stop harassing my husband‘s church group or else…”

THE CHALLENGE: Write a one hundred word story that has a beginning, middle and end. No one will be ostracized for going a few words over the count.

THE KEY: MAKE. EVERY. WORD. COUNT.
