Saturday Centus Rules: A prompt is given (from Jenny Matlock’s blog), and you must write 100 words about the prompt.

Normally the prompt doesn’t count in the word count, but this time it is a visual prompt so it obviously doesn’t.

“How about this pumpkin?”

“No. Too small,” she tipped her head sideways to look.

“This one?” He asked, desperation creeping into his voice.

“No. Do you see that soft spot underneath? It will rot too quickly.”

“I found the perfect pumpkin!”

She gasped, “Are you kidding? That one is way too big.”

“How can it be too big?” He wrinkled his nose.

“Because I know that I will be the one cleaning out all the seeds,” her shiny black nose and whiskers trembled, “and we certainly don’t need all that space for our furniture.”

    You are totally clever!

    I loved it! I can see this little story and a charming pen and ink illustration to go hand in hand with your clever words.

    I really enjoyed this surprise of a story.

    Thank you for linking.
