The Drunk: Friday Fictioneers 100 word story challenge

Friday Fictioneers is a challenge set by Rochelle Fields where writers around the world create 100 word stories inspired by the one image.

I stare across our front lawn. The drunk is passed out next to his poorly parked shit heap.

So he did make it home last night.

It’s only a matter of time before the cops get him, or the Berley boys, I just hope it’s before he kills someone.

I decide I better attempt to drag him in the house.

I approach him and see blood, a lot of blood. I check his pulse. I grin wickedly to myself as I walk inside to call 000.

I am yet to know who or how, but someone has set me free.

**NOTE** ‘000’ is the Aussie equivalent to ‘911’.

  1. Neighbourhood drunks can pose a big problem. Your disposal of this one is deft. I’m glad for her that she no longer has to put up with this one, and what a nice girl she is for being willing to go out and help him inside. Nicely told.
