Succinctly Yours: Microfiction--Week 17

Using the photo as inspiration, write a story of 140 characters or 140 words. It doesn’t have to be exactly 140, just not more.The added optional challenge is to use the word of the week in the story. Then post it at here.

 
After Devon made an obscure reference to her inability to swim, Ann stood slowly. Are the rumors about him true, she wondered. Fear reigned.

Why would he mention that? Very good lead into something that could be sinister!

It does leave you wondering what will happen next...of course, when I first read it, (too quickly) I thought HE was unable to swim which would put a slightly different spin on it. I like your version better.

What a fun project! When you say 140 characters, do you mean you're counting letters & spaces?
