Ask me Anything(?)

“Ask Me Anything(?)”

A Drabble by Steven Dana Lidster

A Riddle roams the streets of every city, a knife held ready in its grip.

It appears at random and without notice to ask a Question.

An Answer shadows the Riddle along the rooftops or from the darkened alleys, a sniper rifle at the ready.

A Riddle weaves within the crowd, or stalks lone prey that may happen by.

An Answer has focus on one necessary task, in the event a Riddle finds its Question.

A Riddle finally selects a Question and as they speak(,) the Answer fires.

A sniper’s bullet finds it’s target, and a Riddle falls dead, Unanswered.
