The abandoned suitcase
The other day when my husband and I went shooting,
I spotted this suitcase in the desert.
Being the imaginative person that I am,
I dreamt up all kinds of stories as to why it was abandoned.
The possibilities are endless,
and yet only the most morbid of scenarios stands out as the strongest.
I thought the suitcase was the perfect prop for a photo shoot,
I had to clear my mind of the scenario I dreamt up.
So, I asked my husband to check the suitcase to make sure it was empty.
Prior to his checking,
visions of a dead body cut up into little pieces danced in my head.
Can you blame me?
You hear stories all the time of the desert being used as a dumping ground for bodies.
Thank goodness, there was no such thing inside the suitcase.
There was a full name, address, and phone number though.
The curious side of me wants to research the person and check it out.
But I will leave it be.
And though the suitcase was empty,
it did have bullet holes scattered throughout.
Obviously it was being used as a target.
Or was it?
