THE DARE - a 100 word story

THE DARE

It was the latest craze, dreamed up when winter came early and ruined the final beach party. Instead of sand-buggy races, the local bloods challenged each other to dare-devil stunts in the multi-storey car-park.

Everyone said Den was mad to take the dare, but despite Trudi’s pleading he wouldn’t back out – losing face was a fate worse than death.
“I’m the spin-turn champion,” he boasted as he gunned the engine and sped towards the edge, but he hadn’t reckoned on the sudden rain.


Bits of his car spread over an entire block. They found Den’s hand still clutching the handbrake..

  3. Well done. Miscalculations generally lead to a lot of trouble. Great last line.

  4. Yikes, what a macabre final line. Since bits of the car were spread over an entire block, I interpreted it to mean that his disembodied hand was found still holding the handbrake... which is possibly not what you intended!
