Highball and Seven Murders

Once again it’s time for Friday Fictioneers with our host Rochelle giving the challenge.

“Women just want to have fun, right,” said Melinda to her BFF Jill.

“Yup, let the boys attend to business,” Jill replied.

Suddenly Jill’s German Shepherd, Highball, who was leashed to a truck outside began howling and barking. Rushing into the street they saw a red Cadillac pull to a stop in front of the garage next door. Four men, two dressed in police uniforms with machine guns drawn, emerged and walked inside. The sounds of the machine guns firing was unmistakable. The Cadillac sped away.  Later, the bodies of seven men were found ripped apart.


  1. Good writing. The action started fast in that story. I agree that it needs to be extended. It’t pretty quiet where my daughter lives in Chicago. I guess it depends where you are and what’s taking place at the time.


  2. Hmmmm…a little blood and gore for St. Valentine’s Day. A word to the wise: stay out of Chicago on Sweetheart’s Day if you’re in the booze business. Well told.
