This is the second of five pieces I have written for voice week. Each piece is based on the same prompt but told using a different character’s voice. I decided to use my own prompt for voice week.
The Crime – Part 2
It was usually safer walkin to the car on my own then havin Jerry from security with me. Just the thought of him made my skin crawl. If his hand accidentally slipped and landed on my ass one more time, I was gonna break his damned fingers. I handed a cup of tea to old Ernie, the stink of him was awful but his toothless smile made it worth it. Then I raced to my piece of shit car, hoping like hell it started. I shivered and wished I owned a decent jacket as I fumbled with my keys. I nearly shit myself when I heard someone come up behind me. Then it was as if the world stopped movin.
What do you think of this character’s voice? What does the piece tell you about the character?
