The Mystery

This post has been published by me as a part of the Blog-a-Ton 17; the seventeenth edition of the online marathon of Bloggers; where we decide and we write. To be part of the next edition, visit and start following Blog-a-Ton.

"You'll end up dead or incarcerated, but you'll be looked up by everyone." The words Pete uttered before his oath resonated inside Bret as he hung up the phone.

With a semi-automatic, Bret headed to Pete's place. It was dark. Unusually. As he entered, Bret heard a click behind him. He knew what it was!

  6. Mystically mystifying mystery... ;)

  7. What a 55er!
    That click can be the end or even the beginning of a shocking story. What potential there is to this teaser. Bret's fate is one big mystery!!!

  8. thats quick and amazing.
    Is it a 55er?

    Must be :)

    I know, it's too short. but that's all I can do in a 55-er. We rarely see these in blogaton and I wanted to do it this time.

    And about your question, that'll be a secret for now :P

    SiS -

    Thank you.

    Rumya -

    That'll be told in a sequel, may be! All the best to you too.

    Adarsh -

    It is a 55er, and hence the brief post. Thank you for your comment.

  11. the post left a mystery to be be solved...Nice way to end it!

  12. unsolved mystery and that is why its a mystery.great vision behind the post.all the best for BAT.

  13. Ok.. I have a feeling the click was from Pete's pistol..and he was about to shoot Bret. lol.

    But I did not get the hang of the whole thing. Who were they... what were they doing.

    Seems you have taken the title 'mystery' too literally... like you ended up writing something that is a mystery, as of now, to people... please spell it out man.

  14. Very short lived mystery indeed!

  15. Nice 55er. The mystery is well preserved!
    All the best for the BAT.

  16. a minute..the mystery started and it ended too..!!! nice one dear..!!

    All the best for BAT dear..!!!

    It was intentionally left unsolved to leave it to the reader's imagination. glad you liked it.

  19. Kshitij -
    left it to reader's imagination dude. but doesn't involvement in Bret's murder make it all predictable. i just tried something different. most of the posts tried to create a mysterious circumstance and finally concluded with what the reason of mystery was. since i tried a 55er, i didn't want to spill out the mystery itself.
