100 Words - Suburban Hideaway

piggly wiggly store

To most people Raul was the nice retired man down the street that fixed up bikes for the neighbor kids. To the few who knew otherwise his appearance meant their luck had run out. The nameless man in the expensive suit was there. They were doomed.

Then there was the incident at the Piggly Wiggly. Raul was doing his usual shopping and chatting with neighbors, when he saw a man he thought he recognized. This man screamed, “No! It’s not fair!” and threw a barrage of produce at Raul. That was it for Raul. No more suburban hideaway for him.
