This is a short play rather than a story, but being my only one, it doesn’t warrant a new category.
Late at night in a darkened kitchen. Sam enters and moves towards the fridge.
Sam: What do I want?
ENTER CHUCK THE ROBBER
Chuck: Oh dear, an inhabitant ahead.
Sam: Who are you?
Chuck: Never mind, continue your conversation with the fridge.
Chuck: You know, I’m quite thirsty. Are you going to get something or
are you just trying to cool the room?
Chuck: Ah, this is nice. Have to get the bag out for this one.
Sam: Hey! That’s my Mom’s prized Lumberjack Award.
Chuck: Mmm, good milk. Yes, very good.
Sam: What you doing in that draw?
Sam: Get out of there!
Chuck: Why look, is this you?
Sam: Yes, when I was nine. Listen, I don’t know who you are. You can’t stay here!
Chuck: I won’t be long.
Sam: Put that stuff down.
Chuck: Let an honest man do his job in peace.

Chuck: This boy? Yes, he’s quite annoying. No, no, I don’t need any
help. See you Thursday.
Sam: I don’t believe this is happening.
Chuck: Makes my work easier, that does.
Sam: I’ll be right back, you better be gone before I return.
Chuck: Any idea how much this beautiful set of dishes is worth?

Chuck: What an amazing piece! This will make a fine addition to my
Sam: Well, you should know I took karate lessons. You’re lucky I’ve
held back until now…
Chuck: When I am done in the kitchen you will have to give me a tour of
the house, you must have more treasures where this comes from.
Sam: I’m a killing machine!
Chuck: Why, that’s not a very safe place for all this money.
Sam: I give up, I can’t take this!
Chuck: You take? I’m doing the work here.
Sam: You can have it, just stay away from me!
