Well here we are again responding to Lillie McFerrin’s prompt word for the week of “RUINS.” This week I’ve decided to respond with an old adage we’ve all heard numerous times
FIVE SENTENCE FICTION – Ruins

CHEATERS NEVER WIN
Jack for some reason always seemed to have managed to win every single car race he ever entered. His competitors couldn’t help but take note of this achievement, so they set up a plan to find out the possible reason for his unprecedented success. So the night before the next race they set up teams to follow him wherever he might go through the night. One of the teams got successful and saw him sabotage each of his competitor’s cars so he now RUINS any chance of their winning the race. With the knowledge in hand all the other drivers spent the entire night undoing the handiwork Jack had done, and rejoiced when he finally came in last at the end of the race.
