Last Stop?

Scott L Vannatter – 100 Words

Carolyn sat talking to Sheila, the children close by, and drinking her tea from a long-stemmed glass.  The brew was crimson with some fruit put in.  As Carolyn continued her story, all were enthralled in the tale.  In fact, some of the children cried quietly when Billy died.  Carolyn noticed her own eyes watering and finished.

“And, you know the rest.”  She sipped again.

Several of the children had drawn close to Sheila for comfort.

“Well, we have our own share of adventures, but I am certain we want you to be a part?”

All hands went up in ascent.

    Thank you for your story – it was good and the narrator must be a great story teller to pull the children into it. Nice story! Nan

    Dear Scott,

    I loved that all listened intently to the story. Nice one.

    Now this got my attention, but I’m not too sure what the intent was. Still, though, it’s making me want to read some more. I kept thinking the children are going to be thrown in the oven like Hansel and Gretl! 😀

      Ah! No, but do visit my blog and see to Carolyn’s page (listed on the left). At the bottom of the list are parts 1-7 of her story. There will be 8 or 9 total.

    Awesome! I love this take on the prompt. I love how involved the listeners and the storyteller became. I look forward to reading more!


    • kindredspirit23  On February 14, 2014 at 9:42 pm

      Oh, then please go to my blog page and visit Carolyn’s page there (listed on the left). Read parts 1-7 at the bottom. There will be either 8 or 9 parts in total. I add one each Tuesday. I intend to publish it at some point.

    Well-written. I didn’t understand until I saw it was a part of a book in serial form. I read one of the previous parts, then came back to this one. Good job.


    • kindredspirit23  On February 14, 2014 at 9:40 pm

      Thanks, it is almost done. I anticipated it being over this coming Tuesday. It is now possible it could take one more week – I leave that up to Carolyn.


Feel free to say something; I look forward to it!

carly books

I read lots of books, from mythology retellings to literary fiction and I love to reread books from childhood, this is a place to voice my thoughts for fun. I also like to ramble about things such as art or nature every now and again.
