Six on the Sixth #6: Mystery & Dad

Since six on the sixth is six six-word stories on the sixth of each month and June is the sixth month of the year (that’s a mouthful…), I decided to do a two-for-one deal today.

One for Mystery Month and one for all the fathers out there. Enjoy.

Six on Sixth Dad

Catch
We played catch in the yard.

Golf
He taught me to play golf.

Rough-Housing
We always wrestled with my sisters.

Homework
He’d attempt to help with homework.

Help
“Go ask your mother,” he’d say.

Dad
My one and only: my father.

Six on the Sixth Mystery

And
The murder was shy and subtle.

The
There were no witnesses to talk.

Case
There were no suspects to blame.

Was
Questions were asked, answers never found.

Closed
Officers, detectives left dazed and confused.

Forever
In the end, hurt victims remained.
