Day #4: Quite the Conundrum

Day #4: Write 250 words starting with the next piece of dialogue you hear.

“If you ain’t really ’bout it, then keep ya mouth shut.” He could hear the semblances of an argument from the embankment. He looked down at his watch to see how long it had been since he started walking, only to stare at bare skin that his shirt couldn’t cover. He paused when he heard a gasp from another person.

“Do you have the time?”
