100 Word Wednesday: Week 52
By Neel Anil Panicker
Inspector Sharma looked askance at the snow white pyramid and the imposing silver sprayed façade of the 18th century Victorian palace behind it.
He was never into history; he viewed anything beyond yesterday as history.
His gaze shifted to the central foyer below. Camera toting tourists ambled around, slipping in and out of the crescent- shaped entrance that led to the first floor Queen’s throne.
Nothing unusual caught his eye.
He checked his watch. 3 pm.
The time had arrived.
Any moment a person would die.
He knew who the killer would be. He worried who his victim would be.
