100-Word Challenge for GrownUps (100WCGU) Week #49

Julia, of Julia’s Place, has just released the prompt for this week’s 100-Word Challenge for GrownUps.  It’s a doozy:

….Murray was just about to serve for the Championship when…

Here goes:

Murray’s First Serve

Murray and I had asked for this; we knew better, and we understood what a mess this would be.  We both needed the cash, and this Championship seemed  a good way to get some.  We circled the guests, offering cold drinks, and nibblies.  The contestants lined up behind the competition table; what an odd bunch this was.  Then again, why wouldn’t they be?

Murray had been assigned the first round of the tournament; he lifted his tray, while I watched.  Murray was just about to serve for the Championship, when he was knocked back by the last contestant to arrive.  The 57th International Pancake Eating Contest was beginning!
