Fiction: No Death (138 words)

“Aw, Matthew. Why would I want to kill you? I mean really, I gain nothing from your death besides some murder charges, I’d imagine. And I have no desire to go to prison. None at all.”

“See, Matt,” James chimed in, “Cindy doesn’t want to go to prison. Now we just have to hope she doesn’t cause a stress related heart attack.”
