    Ha! I love it.
    I’ve been really “meh” about the prompts lately and probably won’t do this one, but I look forward to reading them (most likely because they’re short and sweet. I dig that.)

    oooohhh…I want to play!!

    It was over. He dropped the folder on the table. I stared back. Handing him the cash, I ran out & never looked back. Worst restaurant ever.

    Weeeeeeeeeee! 🙂

    Although it would have been that much better if the detective did it….although that would have screwed up your character limit!

    Love it!



  4. Name (Required)

    Did the Butler do it the conservatory with a candle stick? I watched/played too much Clue.

    good job, mutant ninja alien


  5. Jemima

    Fireflies hovered over them as they shared the ultimate first kiss. Then he had to say something stupid. Should’ve been her first clue.

    Needs work, but this was fun!


  6. Name (Required)

    I thought I left a comment earlier.

    Anyway, nice mystery. Like a quick episode of Clue.

    robots stick together

    That is EXACTLY why I don’t have a butler.

    By the way, what is a butler, anyway? I mean, what does one do?

    I was already smiling, but the shout-out to AC had me laughing out loud. I’m glad you got the chance to participate this week! 🙂


    • Amy Vansant

      Thanks! Turns out she’s dead, so she won’t mind. I don’t know how she died… but I bet she does…

    I must admit, if you’d worked in a twist, I think it would’ve popped a bit more.

    But an entire story in 140 characters is very impressive. I’m still not sure how you did it…

    Hopefully you’ll join the prompts more often.. 🙂


    • Amy Vansant

      Well hell, not if you’re going to criticize me… 😉 I did the butler thing on purpose, because I was trying to do a 140 character parody of that type of whodunnit, but I certainly understand your perspective!

    Sweet, short and to the point! I’m loving this prompt. And I love that so many commenters are giving it a shot.


  11. JDaniel4's Mom

    I thought about the game Clue when I read this.


  12. angela

    Ha! I thought of Clue as well. And of course Dame Agatha. I think my mom had/has 99% of her 1 million murder mysteries 🙂


  13. Karen

    Makes me think of a Murder Mystery Dinner or Clue….goodness I loved that movie…and the game! :>


  14. Tracy

    This rocked.

    But what about Colonel Mustard? He was always my favorite. I was also always partial to the candlestick.


  15. The Drama Mama

    “They served drinks to the characters in Clue.” Bwahahahahahaha. That was good. I enjoyed the suspense. Great job working a whole story in a tweet.


  16. Kim at Let Me Start By Saying

    Suck it, Agatha! You crack me up.
    That was fun and engaging, if that’s not an asinine thing to say about such a short piece.
    And now I think my comment is even longer than what I’m commenting on. Oy.

    Thank you to everyone for the comments – my spambot freaked out apparently and I didn’t see a lot of them until today!
