Happy Drabble Day: a short work of fiction, exactly 100 words in length.
Join me. Create your own 100-word piece of fiction. The more dabbling with drabbles the merrier. Tag your post with ‘Friday Drabble’ and use the hash-tag #fridaydrabble on Twitter.
As is the case whenever there is a “Wednesday’s What is It?”, I talk about the mystery photo before I share the drabble.
Folks, I tried super hard to stump you this week. In fact, I was confident no one would correctly guess the picture. Then the first guess appeared in my comments section, and the wind left my sails of confidence. The first guess was followed by a second correct guess, and I hung my head in shame. On the bright side – out of 14 guessers, only 3 guessed correctly.
Today, I tip my hat to Alternifolium – formerly known as Hipster Gardner. He responded to the challenge within minutes of the post going live – and he nailed it. Great job, Alternifolium. I am so glad you played. I’d also like to acknowledge the other two correct guessers: Beth Ann and 1PointPerspective. Well done!
Just like last week, I’ve hidden the answer in the drabble. Enjoy!
The Front Line
“The kid has no respect. He’s been behind the front line for too long and has no clue what the front lines are like.” Nico said.
“He’s still kinda young, don’t you think?” Luke asked.
“He needs to be taught a lesson. Period.”
“Jimmy!” Luke yelled. “Get over here. Nico wants you in front.”
“But, I’m not ready.”
“Get over there. NOW, Pinhead!”
Jimmy watched as the bowling ball rolled towards him at breakneck speed.
He closed his eyes, braced for impact, and screamed.
Suddenly, he heard the others laughing around him – laughing at him.
