55 - Tantalized

With patience and a flashlight, he could see through the cracks around the door, but couldn't make out what was inside.

Stored treasures from days gone by?

Molding evidence of some gruesome crime?

It was probably just dusty garden tools, but he had finally found the key and would now know once and for all!

About Friday Flash 55: The challenge is to write a complete story in fifty-five words. If you've written a 55-flash, go let The G-Man know!

I suspect it is going to take more than the key to get that lock open. Maybe a chisel and hammer?
