The Second Body

by , under Fiction Prompts, Friday Fictioneers


A bunch of us came out. Heck, practically the whole town. We didn’t have no particular business there. Just something to do. Sheriff’s men were there, along with some state troopers. They had got the whole marsh cordoned off with that crime scene tape you see on TV. By the time we got there, they had already found the first body, the younger one. I didn’t get to see  before they got her wrapped up and into the ambulance, but I saw the second one all right. Tell you the truth, it didn’t really look like a body at all.
