Scandalous Secrets


As Dr. Morris began his Economics lecture on a Tuesday afternoon, a reporter meekly stumbled into the room, apparently confused if she was in the correct room. She slipped her way to the end of the computer room and seated herself by the last computer in the row, trying not to interrupt the lecture. Dr. Morris — wearing a maroon checkered shirt, khaki pants, and an old-fashioned desert brown tweed blazer – continued to lecture, oblivious to the students’ reactions. Everyone and anyone who had heard of him, knew he was a man with dirty secret. Word spread fast about his illegal pastimes of embezzling money. Dr. Morris seemed too shrewd not to know that his criminal activities had been exposed. And there he was, with a smile plastered onto his face, pacing across the room with his squeaky burnished leather penny loafers. He should have known better than to allow a reporter into his place of employment, to observe his every action as if he were a lab rat, critically analyzing to find that one give away in his demeanor that makes for a juicy cover story. After the lecture ended, the reporter grabbed her satchel and scurried out the door, dropping a paper along the way. Dr.Morris picked it up and ran behind her. Once he caught up with her, he glanced at it and read aloud with a stern look, “Investigation: Dr. Morris Embezzlement Scandal.”

  1. Pretty good! Now I want to know what happens next! Are you going to use the other prompts to tie everything together to create one story? Or maybe just adding to it without a prompt? Either way, I see this as a beginning to a pretty amazing story!

    1. Wow I never thought of that idea of tying all the prompts together! That is so clever. And thank you so much. I guess you will just have to keep following my blog to see what happens next!
