Story Starter Challenge April 24

Today’s sentence: “I have no idea how it got there.”

So far, so good.
Hopefully no-one would notice for a few days, and when they did, he could blatantly lie.
As it turned out, nobody used the car for over a week, and when they did, they were in too much of a hurry to notice a slight rearrangement of the bodywork.
However, when putting the car away, his father saw the dent and naturally asked who had driven the car last.
His mother said she’d used the mini to do her shopping, so all eyes fell on Jack.
He looked at the offending dent and shook his head.
‘I have no idea how it got there,’ he said.
And he didn’t. The damage his father was referring to was on the opposite side to that which was now miraculously intact.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
