Cling-on Warning! A Saturday Centus

Jenny Matlock
The Saturday Centus challenges us to write a piece within 100 words, based on a prompt. I encourage you to jump aboard. It's great practice, and I've met wonderful peers this way. Plus, Jenny's our favorite teacher.


Admittedly, it's been difficult to overcome last week's harsh critique. Thus, this post may be more warped than ever. Still, I'm continuing my sci-fi spoof from two weeks ago [here]. Miss Jenny made us use this unappealing photo as our prompt. Sorry, sorry. It's not my fault. Well, it is. Have a happy Easter, regardless!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Cling-on Warning!

"Rita, do you have the -um- protective device?"

"No, Spock. The guy's apposed to take care of that."

"But I, I, I...didn't."

"Don't worry, Spocky. We're standing up."

"Okay Rita. Here goes."

The screen abruptly blackens. Next, this horrid photo of a blue Hue Heffer appears.

James Earl's voice returns in rhyme:

"Premature exploration - the kind bunnies do all day -

creates ramifications, er 'cling-ons.' Shall we say?

Lil dippers, heed this warning.

Don't hop o'er that gate.

For a moment of  adventure,

The price may be too great."

  3. Dear Robyn,
    Wow. How to keep your story going?
    I think that I have been smitten by you and other participants who have a series. Quite spontaniously, I have a character who does not want to go away. She has even made me break the 100-word-rule!

    Thank you so much for your kind words about my way-too-long story. I have made things worse by writing a second part. All you have to do read it is to go back to the same post and scroll down a bit. I am including a link at the end of this comment.

    By the way, is the photo of the red-headed curly-haired child with chocolate around the mouth possibly you? Really sweet photo! Beautiful child!


    Best wishes,
    Anna
