100 Word Wednesday: Week 122

100 Word Wednesday: Week 122


By Neel Anil Panicker

Are you sure, it’s him?

‘Yes, sir…hundred per cent sure. Comes here every month, third Sunday.’

From across the road, Detective Chacko turned aside the curtains and peered out of the fourth floor hotel window.

His eyes fell on the board placed just outside the eatery’s front door.

“Sir, he’ll come out in an hour, exactly at nine. It’s a routine.’

Chacko checked his watch.


He counted the seconds; his heartbeats on standstill.

Sure enough, a man___blue cap, white shirt, faded jeans stepped out.

Chacko knew the stage was set for another murder.

The ‘Cochin Killer’ was on prowl.
