ERIC BENSON: Graves

Ted Henson had just finished up his pitch for his crime thriller masterpiece, Graves, and was waiting to hear the verdict.

A suit walked out and ushered him back in. Another suit started, “We’re sorry, Mr. Henson, but we can’t…”

And then he noticed the gun in Mr. Henson’s hand.


Eric has been writing short stories for around a year.

Autographs Are Extra

The sign said “$10 for photo and handshake; hugs and autographs extra”. The queue said “Yes, please!”

“I love hearing the sheep crack open their wallets,” muttered the author of “How to Spot a Con Man,” measuring his stack of money against his stack of books and stifling a devilish grin.


This story was based on the prompt “crack open the” at TypeTrigger.
