The Next Big Writer

I recently joined TheNextBigWriter.com and entered the Times are Tough Drabble/Droubble writing competition. The challenge was to look at this photo and write an extremely short work of fiction as either a Drabble (exactly 100 words) or a Droubble (exactly 200 words). This is my Drabble entry:

Her shadow brushed his boots as she walked closer, but he didn't look up. He didn't want pity from this woman with her high heels and fancy clothes.

He hunched his shoulders and pushed his cold hands deeper into his pockets. He wished she'd go away. Soon enough she did; heels clicking as she crossed the street.

Startled at the sound of a gunshot so close, she turned back. Her brows rose in surprise as she watched an old man slump slowly to the ground, a revolver falling to the pavement beside him.

She hadn't even known he was there.

Why not have a go yourself and let us know what you came up with?
