For Friday Fictioneers 100-Word Challenge: 15 July 2022

After a night of partying, Becky had overslept. On the way to work, she went right past a stop sign.

“Sir, I’m very sorry,” she said to the cop who pulled her over. “I didn’t mean to do it.”

“You seem to be in such a hurry. What’s the rush?”

“Officer, it’s a life and death situation. I’m a surgical nurse and got an emergency call.”

Of course, it was a lie. The cop completely fell for it, though.

“Is that right? Come follow me.”

With the siren blaring, the officer escorted Becky to the hospital like a true celebrity.

    Dear Plaridel,

    I see this is a true story. I’m sure she had plenty of explaining to do when she got to work. Cute.

    Shalom,

    Rochelle

    I am glad there was no accident. Might be wiser to call in sick. It’s called paying the piper.

    Lying to the police, generally speaking, is not a good idea. We already know she likes a risky lifestyle of partying, so lying is par for the course… and there she is, hung over and ready for surgery!

    If she’s a nurse and got to work in time, all good. I only hope the cop doesn’t find out. Fun story!
