Not Taking the Fifth

by Ken Magee
Originally published by BookHippo.uk on 28/04/2016

“D’you know why I stopped you, sir?”

“Nope,” I said. “Wasn't really concentrating.”

“Not concentrating?”

“Too busy texting.”

“Texting, were we?”

“Yep, about the weed.”

“Cannabis user?”

“Nope,” I said, “grower and seller. I used to just grow but my partner died so now I sell too.”

“Mmmm,” said the cop, “I stopped you for doing thirty-eight in a thirty zone.”

“Not the murder?”

“You really shouldn't take the piss, but my shift’s about over and who needs the paperwork? On your way and drive carefully.”

“Thanks,” I said as I wondered where to bury the body in the boot.
