Below you will find the results of my having challenged myself for a number of days to write a short story with a beginning and middle and an end inside of 30 minutes. Here is what I came up with. I hope you like it.

“I suspect it was the person who had the most to gain from Big Daddy having injured feet!”

“Ow!” he ejaculated.
“Are you all right?” asked the Inspector.
“It was me!” Carlsbad tried to shout, his face buried in the Persian rug. “I just hated that fucker.”
