Three Line Tale #2: A trail of yellow

The intruder alarm had been turned off, the cameras were disabled and the entire place was trashed.

The burglars had managed to escape after cleaning out the cash registers and the cashier was nowhere to be found.

After hours of searching, his body was found… buried under the newly arrived batch of yellow pencil stoppers.

Author’s  Note:

This is my very first attempt at writing a tale of crime and by a lucky coincidence, it turned out to be a drabble in 55 words – popularly known as 55 fiction!

Have you seen this video where the cashier redefined “chill reaction”? He was utterly unfazed by the armed robber! Click here to watch the video.
