Evidence

(100-word flash fiction)

“Another blurry image?” Poirot roared, gesticulating wildly. “How are we going to catch the angry bird thief if you can’t take clear photos?”

“But sir, the bird is in the photo and so is the hand.”

“Haaand? Of what use is the haaand?”

“Sir! For putting the handcuffs on.”

“You need the face for IDENTIFICATION, you imbecile.” Ben maintained a judicious silence.

“Get out!” the boss barked, flinging his cigar at his retreating employee.

Unfortunately, Ben was as bad at escaping as with gathering evidence.

A case was filed. The evidence was searingly evident. On Ben’s bum, a cigar burn.
