The prompt this week is the whole first paragraph.
My untied shoelace changed my life. As I leaned down to re-tie it, I kicked away a few leaves. When I turned my head slightly to look where the leaves had been, I was astonished to see a rubber-banded wad of hundred dollar bills nestled in a little indention in the muddy ground.
Temptation is a wicked bitch. My right hand grabbed the bills. I ran like a rabbit.
Nightmares followed. Whose money was it? I called the police.
“A week ago while jogging in Dundurn Park.”
“Why call now?”
“It’s the right thing to do.” I lied.
Days later, the phone rang. “We need to talk.”
“Who was your accomplice?”
“This is marked ransom money, Boyo.”
Fear clutched my throat. “I had nothing to do with it…”
My luck just changed. Again.
