This was for the Flash Fiction Friday cue "Happy" and is about as happy a story as you'll get from me. I went over, it's about 1100 words, and the characters Jinks and Sue are two I'm developing for a lighthearted caper sometime in the future, titled ... Hijinx Ensue. Like the play on words there? I won't go for so much of an O.Henry vibe in the novel, I don't think. I just like the idea of two stupid street thieves in New York getting into trouble.
