A story of 200 words (think of this as The Potters Wheel)
I am just pointing out to those of you who follow me in cyberspace this little story is a story as part of some sort of competition it is not tonight's diary entry I still have to do that HO HUM anyway here it is a little story 200 words long and starting with Shadows crept across the wall ......ending in everything faded .............. and mentioning the word Orange?
Shadows crept across the wall, they were round vague, I could hear little at first then thud thud thud thud it continued until I decided to investigate. But it was dark I had been sleeping and the shadows were the result of something in the kitchen. I could hear whispers and small feet moving about. As I entered the kitchen I found the cats trying to juggle
Oranges, I’ve told them not to
do that, but encouraged by the dog and the lemmings of Petrograd
and the Banshees from the woods they were entertaining. Cats are not good at juggling and so the
oranges were rolling along the table and falling off the side onto an old Orange box (that’s a box painted orange not a box with
more oranges in).
They had the fridge open to back light their stage, the kitchen table and the dog was helping himself to cold beer and even offering it to the lemmings of Petrograd, lemmings are a bit rowdy after a few beers and I thought I better close and padlock the fridge which I did very slowly and as the door closed, I said show over and everyone and everything faded.........
