I Knew You’d Wait

It was all or nothing Irene, that’s what you meant to me.
Ted left with you, driving down the boulevard speeding, they said.
Years later, I’m told he died in a shoot-out in a Las Vegas bar.
Served my time; ten years for robbery.
I heard, Ted dumped you out in the woods.
Damn, you’ve aged, lost your mojo by the looks of it.
I’ve dreamt of this day, my heart weeps, I want to scream at the sight of you.
You’re beautiful, I love you. Is our secret safe?
Under those panels, I stashed ten million dollars.

  6. You were ambitious, having a plot turn as well as a twist at the end – and you succeeded! Nicely done, James.

  7. An entertaining story with a great twist at the end! His enthusiasm will definitely wane if he doesn’t find the money under the panels.

  10. Really enjoyed the ambiguity of who the narrator is speaking to; keeps us guessing.

  11. Haha! Loved that. How you had me thinking he was talking a bout a woman, then realising he was attached to that car for a special reason. Imaginative take on the prompt

  14. I hope Irene kept her little secret safe from Ted. At a million a year, it’s for the best since Ted is now out of the way…

  16. Very interesting.
    At first, I thought Irene is his ladylove with whom Ted ran away!
    Ted didn’t know about the treasure, right?
    If so, then it’ll be safe for him!
