Someone on my deviantART watch list asked me to continue this vignette, though for the life of me I didn’t know why.
So I did.
Still under 125 words, and this time I’m pretty sure there are NO ADJECTIVES OR ADVERBS. I did, in fact, find one of each in the last version, which I’ve edited.
So, if you find one of those nasty li’l buggers, let me know, would you? I’m serious, here.
Thanks! Have a great holiday weekend!
“Man, it’s … .” Paulie leaned in, and brushed back his bangs. “You know what it …?”
“No,” I said and shook my head. “No, I don’t.”
The breeze teased the field into undulating waves. I heard gravel crunch and turned to see Paulie scouring the ground. He trotted back grinning, a twig in his hand. It went from his hips to the ground. He stood over me a minute, then stuffed it in my hand.
“Here,” he grinned. “Poke it. See what happens.”
“What the — no way! You poke it!” I dropped the stick, scrabbled to my feet, and backpedaled.
“Yeah! You poke it!”
He snorted, the grin plastered on his lips. “Fine, I will.”
