APRIL A-Z 2012 'Approaching Zero' - "...Nazi's"



For APRIL A-Z 2012, I decided on a single theme. In fact, it's a single story, broken into 26 bite-sized chunks of precisely 100 words. Each day's instalment begins using a word starting with the current letter of the alphabet and ends with a word commencing with the letter for the following day.

I hope you like it enough to look in each day and follow the story.....!
(new readers, please click back to 'A' to follow the plot!)

“Pocket,” he winced through clenched teeth, making vain patting movements to direct her. She slipped her elegant fingers inside the folds of his jacket and pulled out a leather wallet.

“Inside,” he continued. “It’s the crown jewels.” Slowly she flipped it open…..


…..to be continued!
