Somewhere safe

‘And you’ve no idea where you put it?’ Carol asked.

‘I put it somewhere safe.’

‘And that’s?’

‘I’ve no idea.’ Tom scratched his head. ‘I just know I put it where it wouldn’t get damaged or stolen.’

‘Great. So it could be anywhere!’

‘Not anywhere. Somewhere hidden.’

‘Well, we have all the time in the world given we can’t sell the house without the building regs cert.’

‘Calm down. We know it’s here somewhere. Look, I’ll take the attic; you take the bedroom.’

‘How about I strangle you instead?’

‘You’d still have no cert.’

‘But I’d feel better about it.’

A drabble is a story of exactly 100 words.

I like the dialogue here very much, Rob, especially the last bit. And looking for that paperwork - how often that happens! Well done
