#atozchallenge, J is for Jail…

Adam Mitchum sat in an uncomfortably small, warm room at the Jackson County Jail.  Detective Townsend said he’d just be a minute, but it seemed like an hour.  He finally reappeared with the promised cup of water.

“Talked to your wife already, Mitchum.  Says she was asleep when you left, can’t say for sure what time it was.  Thought the garage door opened real early, like 4 a.m.”

Lying bitch, Adam thought.  “She’s — mistaken.  I made coffee and left the house about six.   Anyway, the cameras in the school vestibule will show what time I got there.”

“Nope, they’d been disabled.”

My theme this year is 100 word fiction.  (So no, don’t count this line.)  This is a continuation of A is for Apple, which you can read here.

    1. Well, crap, I just saw that I was unsubscribed from your blog so I rejoined. I probably hit that button when I was trying to comment. Sorry!

  9. You are so busted, Mitchum. We’re setting up the polygraph upstairs right now. And we got a decent partial print on one of the cameras. You also forgot that the neighbors dog was barking at you when you left. Let’s see how long you keep with your story…

  10. Uh oh. Seems like his thoughts at least confirm he didn’t leave at 4am, but the camera? That could be a problem… not that Mitchum is definitely the one who disabled it, but not that he didn’t…

    Yes, please! Give us a few more installments of this one!
