Packing Heat

I wrote this to the Thimbleful Thursday 100 word prompt Packing Heat.

“So,” said the elegant older woman with asperity, “who’s providing who with a cover story here?”

“Ma’am?” The younger speaker was a nondescript girl/woman in her late teens.

“I was persuaded to let you and your friends tag along because chaperoning a school representative team was a better story than our original one.”

“You make an excellent headmistress, ma’am.” The words and tone were completely respectful.

“Thank you. Last night a man was investigating our luggage, but you dealt with him before your uncle and I could intervene.”


“We saw you and that emo boy.”

“Ah, yes. Edan.”

“Exactly. So, what’s your sport again? If anyone asks.”

“Building clearance.”
