100 Word Challenge --- Moral


Each week Velvet Verbosity issues a word and a challenge to write 100 words. She sets no boundries except 100 words (and even then she is lenient). Some have continuing stories that intertwine the new word into them, and some have stand alone narratives. Others write poetry or prose with deep meaning. All are interesting and worth reading. Below is my humble attempt at this weeks word -- Moral.


“Just get something and stick it in your bag. Shit, Ms. SmartyAss over there is watching like she thinks we’re up to somethin’. You’ve gotta distract her.”

“I gotta to do what? Why?”

“Shhhhh. We’ll get caught if you act chicken. Now go ask were the toothpaste or somethin’ is.”

“Can I help you girls find something?”

“No ma’am. We’re fine.”

“Why’d you say that? Man I can’t believe you ain’t never done this. Everyone does it. ‘Sides they expect us too.”

“Yea, well my granny don’t expect it. I’m not stealing anything and you’d better just put that stuff back. She says we’ve got to have morals.”
