Now here is my 99 word story –
Pride and a Fall
Hey old man, where are you? Couldn’t keep up, huh? Damn root, my ankle is swollen. Tried to stand, I fell again. I think my wrist is broken.
Pops, where are you? You said the rock that looks like a head, right? Spent the night pressed against that rock. So many noises. I’m scared.
Stock – 3 granola bars, and 1 1/2 bottles of water
Dad, you used to say something about pride and a fall. You were right. Where are you?
I’m exhausted. I just want to sleep. Daddy, where are you?
Thanks for reading. Please let me a comment, criticism or just off the wall remark.
