“Don’t like this, Billy. Can’t we just tell the police – say it was an accident?”

“But it wasn’t, Jimmy and it won’t take the police long to figure that out. Better this way. We put her in the boat, add a few of them stones and push it out on to the lake. This rusty old hulk  will sink in no time.”

As, Jimmy, reluctantly hauled Jen’s body into the boat, Billy, took one of the rocks and hit him over the head. He couldn’t trust his friend to keep his mouth shut. Fortunately, there was room for both bodies.

  1. Ouch! I should have known I’d end up dead, contributing a photo to this group! Good stuff; didn’t trust that Billy anyway.
    You could use some commas around their names “Don’t like this, Jimmy,” etc to make it easier to read.
