The Story Starter

Parallel Universe is a story in process. Writers are invited to write a parallel story which will be posted next to the first story. The Omniscient Moderator will decide whether the posts can go on as submitted or if they need editing. This will be two stories side by side in a parallel universe of our creation. Please enter your story elements as a comment and they will be added to the story in the right hand column. You can read the entire author story in the post TUNE IN, LOGON, DROP DEAD - the whole story.

It all Fits

"What do you think about that, boss? The guy just doesn't appreciate a sense of humor. He ran off like a scared rabbit." Brummer scratched his chin fiercely.
I asked him what he thought of Franklin as a suspect. "As a suspect, I like him," Brummer said. "He would look very nice on the witness stand, if he would take the stand of course, and he would provide evasive, equivocal answers which would be amusing for the jury." Brummer looked at me with deep concentration.
"Yeah," I said. "Rabbit trails leading everywhere and nowhere. I don't like him either."
Brummer said, "I like him for something else, I don't know what. I don't think he killed Taasche, but he's covering something else up."
"That probably is a good evaluation. I don't even know why I am here Brummer. You think like a well oiled machine."
"Lt. Argyle, if you weren't here I would think like a rusty wheel, and that's a fact, sir."
