Friday Fictioneers – Seeking Inspiration

ff160414Detective Sosnowski slumped into his chair. It had been one impossible case after another for Jerry in recent months. Hopes of promotion seemed more distant than ever – he needed to catch a break, and soon.

As his office laptop whirred into life, the first email of the day flashed noisily up onto his screen. Attached was a photo: a terrified, screaming child, a man wearing an antique diver’s helmet. It appeared staged; something just didn’t look right. His mind went blank.

This wasn’t the start to the day he needed.

Jerry quickly closed the laptop in frustration: Friday Fictioneers would need to wait – he had murders to solve.

    I can certainly relate to that! I was just a little confused with ‘Detective Sosnowski’ in the first line and ‘Jerry’ in the second as if they were two different people. Perhaps Detective Jerry Sosnowski would work?

        I didn’t like the photo at first either. But it grew on me when and I kept thinking, “what if that was the helmet of a spacesuit instead of a scuba diver?” πŸ™‚ You did a GREAT job! Love the humor.
