Ben was patient. He could wait.
No couples or guys. Girls or little kids or moms were best. He could outrun them.
His back ached but he’d wait. For the perfect target.
Shock. Fear. Relief. Then anger or laughter.
Run or bow? That space of unknown. That moment. Perfection.
This 280 character tale about *The Water Balloon Bandit was inspired by Kat’s Twittering Tale challenge.
Twas fun to write but I think that Ben may benefit from some therapy!
