Drabble: A Book And A Bad Name


As soon as he saw the name on the inside cover he sensed trouble. His cousin would say it plain, on the family WhatsApp. He’d be the thieving little gobshite they always said he was.

Exhibit A…

He scoured the other pages. Why did he nick her precious word book? “Knickerbockers”?

Exhibit B…

Hang on! Next to Helen’s name were two others: Stuart and Stewart. Same surname, so maybe the same person – who didn’t know how to spell their own name.

Exhibit C…

Mmm, plot thickens. Ownership could just be a distraction, a red herring. Maybe he was innocent after all. Yes, that’s it! Case closed.

More of my drabbling.
