The Clue!

What 100 words would you weave around this picture? Challenge hosted by Bikurgurl

The murder appeared to be perfectly planned.

Unopened suitcases, crumpled sheets and jackets didn’t add up.

The interrogation with all the possible people connected, didn’t reveal much.

The lack of any lead gave the inspector sleepless nights. Was this going to be the first unsolved case of his career?

With the sequence of events continuously playing on his mind, it suddenly flashed to him. He jumped out of his bed in the middle of the night and rushed to the hotel.

And there in the remote corner, under the table he found his clue. He could now nab the killer!

    If time permits, watch Broadchurch on Netflix Radhika. Your mystery in the story reminded me this exciting web series.

      Haha! Thanks N for encouraging my feeble attempt. I wasn’t happy with this one. Was in two minds whether to post or not. Finally posted it after lot of deliberation.

        I am a self critic. So feel I still need a lot of polishing on my writing 🙂

        Aren’t we all? And I think that is what helps us push for perfection! But I feel you have to pause somewhere, even if for a tiny bit, and see how far you have come. 🙂
