The drabble challenge is a weekly challenge hosted by Aheila on her blog : http://thewriteaholicblog.wordpress.com/ A reminder how it works: read the prompt and find your angle; write a drabble (100-word story, give or take 5 words); post a direct link to the drabble in your comments.
A flurry of tourists searched for missing luggage.
Sniffer dogs strained at their leashes.
Security personnel hurried by.
