99-word story – the text msg

—Hiya m8, still up 4 drinks 2nite?

Sorry, you’ve got the wrong number.

—Come on Dave, don’t be like that.

Steve? That u?

—Not Steve. Nice jumper btw. Let us in, I’d murder a cuppa!

(Dave looks out of the front window, at an empty garden)

Funny fucker, aren’t you. You’ve had your fun. Piss off now.

—Dave, don’t be like that.

I mean it. Piss off.

—Last chance, Dave. Let us in.

—Now.

(Dave steps out of his front door to check. Nothing. Returns inside.)

“Funny how people never lock their back doors, isn’t it? Now, about that cuppa…”
