Getting in is the easy part.
Getting out is the real test.
For toomanycurls's Story Dice Challenge
and RogueSlytherin's Open at the Close Challenge
For the Story Dice Challenge, I received the following random dice roll.
Each of these dice in some way inspired or is connected to this story.
This was written not only for Rose's Story Dice Challenge and Jacquelin's Open at the Close Challenge, but also for an offsite short story competition through NYC Midnight. My prompts for that competition were:
Genre: crime caper
Subject: an inheritance
Character: an anesthesiologist (need not be a main character)
The NYC Midnight competition was limited to a max of 2500 words, so for that one I submitted a trimmed down version of what you're about to read here.
