Paul swung the rock down on the chain with as much force as his restraints allowed. Twenty years in this hell-hole. He was innocent, dammit!

He swung again. Why didn’t they believe him?

One more strike. The chain broke at last.

He’d show them just how guilty he could be.

This is my entry for the 50 Word Challenge by @jayna. The prompt was "break."

A man on a mission. Twenty years and an innocent man.. the scary thing is it does happen..

I love this story, @therosepatch! You put us right there in the drama of the situation, with a conflict and a satisfying resolution -- he's off to commit a crime after being jailed all this time even though he's innocent. Great irony!

@therosepatch you were flagged by a worthless gang of trolls, so, I gave you an upvote to counteract it! Enjoy!!

Wow! Drama, passion and intensity all wrapped up in fifty words. Incredible job!
