has come up with a word prompt this week ‘… But you need cash … ‘
So here’s my offering:
“I’ve got something.” Dan glanced behind to make sure no one overheard. “But you need cash.”
I looked back too. I couldn’t risk one of the teachers catching me. Not after last time.
He spread them out in a fan and my hand started to move without my even realising.
“Money first.” Dan snatched them back before I could sully them, reduce their value.
I dug in my pocket and came up with a dollar. “That’s all I’ve got.”
His lip lifted in a sneer. “Go on, then.”
My hand hovered while I chose. Then I swooped. It was mine.
