Guilty or Innocent – Part Nine

The following was written in response to a blog hop called Six Sentence Story over at Denise’s. This week’s prompt word: “Watch”.

Looking at his watch while tapping it, Principal Taylor said, “The wife and I are heading to the cottage in an hour so how about we pick this up on Tuesday around three-thirty. That will give me time to question Sam and speak to his parents.”

Pete felt a little at ease as this would give him three days before Sam would more likely kick the crap out of him. Maybe he would be able to come up with some sort of plan to avoid a beating.

Pete’s mom stood up and said, “Yes that will be fine and I’m sure that my husband will return with us on Tuesday. Come on Pete, grab your bag and let’s go.”

To be continued …

My story is ongoing and I began writing it on March 18th. It is about a boy by the name of Pete Patterson. During a random locker check a bag of pot was found in Pete’s locker. If you’d like to read this from the beginning, it starts here.

  1. way to show the respect you feel for your charges… Mr. Principle, which apparently is non-existent. (Not that he can’t resolve the issue, but his fundamental insecurity found it necessary to tell a kid that he can stress out for a weekend… while he’s at his cottage. That, imo, is emotional bullying. What a roger.)

    (How much do you want to bet this principle acts differently in the presence of Pete’s dad)

    lol… yes, I am laughing at myself… I believe, I just bet the author what would happen next in this… the author’s writing.
    actually a compliment on the level of engagement you’ve managed to engender in some Readers, Six Sentences at a time.
