nothing personal

“I couldn’t worm nothing out of him.”

“You used pliers?”

“Yeah.  He screamed a lot but wouldn’t give up his friends.”

“Get rid of him.”

“Nothing personal,” he’d always wanted to say that.

Word Count: 33

I feel like I could tackle this challenge every day this week and come up with something different.  There were so many ways I wanted to go with it.  There was so much more detail I could have put in if I’d been allowed a few more more words.  Who’s the boss?  Who’s the henchman?  Who’s their captive?

I might have to revisit this story later to expand on it anyway.

But, for now, these 33 words were in response to the current Trifecta Writing Challenge:

WORM (transitive verb)

1a :  to proceed or make (one’s way) insidiously or deviously<worm their way into positions of power     — Bill Franzen>
 b :  to insinuate or introduce (oneself) by devious or subtle means
 c :  to cause to move or proceed in or as if in the manner of a worm
:  to wind rope or yarn spirally round and between the strands of (a cable or rope) before serving
Remember:
• Your response must be exactly 33 words.
• You must use the 3rd definition of the given word in your post.
• The word itself needs to be included in your response.
• You may not use a variation of the word; it needs to be exactly as stated above.
• Only one entry per writer.
• If your post doesn’t meet our requirements, please leave your link in the comments section, not in the linkz.
• Trifecta is open to everyone. Please join us.

Have you ever used your powers of persuasion to worm information from someone?

  1. Very nice! You know, they gave us a Trifextra challenge once that was to tell the same story from three different perspectives. I’d love to see this go that way. 🙂
