Wednesday is the new Friday. Time again for the weekly foray into Friday Fictioneers. A 100 words of fiction based on the weekly photo prompt. Addictive, compulsive and oh so entertaining. Follow the link and join in the party, the music is good, the refreshments are free and the toilets are spotless.

Emily was drowning under a lifetime of 2nd place rosettes, she was never quite enough; the quintessential nearly there, the almost made it, the must work harder. Not today. Today she’d be first.
She did another check, all there, every item on the scavenger list.
The prize giving was still held up while the police removed the body. The zip on the body bag stopping at the 6” knife forcibly planted in the chest of last year’s winner.
Agitation and excitement threatened her composure but 1st place would soften the blow of the missing knife from her mother’s kitchen set.
