Friday Fictioneers – 4/30/13 — ‘Entrusted’

Time for Friday Fictioneers again, and this week’s prompt comes from a photo by Claire Fuller.  My story is below the picture. When I do a word count, my computer counts my ellipses marks as words, but the actual word count is exactly 100.  I’m going with that.

“We worked all night, and when they came, they found all the shelves bare.  He wouldn’t tell them where … so they executed him.”

But you — ”

I couldn’t betray his trust …. ”
