Keeps Honest Men Honest, A Flash Fiction

I remember the times when conversations with my grandmother remained germane but lately they stray in unexpected directions. I have been told it may be due to her memories becoming increasingly foggy now that she has reached such elderly heights as one hundred years old. Just now I had asked her what she used to keep locked up in that old wicker basket.

I am quite curious what might be worth enough to lock up, yet placed in a basket that could easily be broken into. Somehow though, we ended up talking about rainbows.

I may never know and must simply assume it’s another lock to keep honest men honest.
