100 Word Challenge | Murray was just about to serve for the Championship when…

Fame had gone to Jason Garfield’s ugly head. At least, that’s what Murray Small believed.

Ever since he won the local eating competition, Jason insisted on referring to himself simply as “the Championship.” Murray was both runner-up and the waiter at the restaurant where the competition had taken place, Charlie’s. To him, losing to the Championship was not just an affront to his eating skills, it was an attack on his turf.

“More wings for the Championship!” slobbered Jason, gristle falling from his still-chewing mouth.

Murray was just about to serve the Championship when there was a gurgle, and Jason went down.

I guess I’m the champ now, he thought.

  1. Quite a clever take on the prompt, this week! I liked the use of “Championship” as a nickname – gave so much more meaning to the story. Nice background work, too – I enjoyed that full little lead-up to the payoff. 🙂

  2. well played! Tennis was my focus, and the focus of including the prompt for most I’ve read but this was really a great twist! Thanks…and that gristle…UGH! 🙂
