May 27, 2022

From Charli Mills at the Carrot Ranch is this week’s story challenge.

May 23, 2022, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less), write a story using the phrase “well’s gone dry.”


I said, “Let’s give it another try?”
She said, “No dear, ‘cuz the well’s gone dry.”

I said, “But we’ve got lotsa history.”
She said, “Yes dear, and it’s all blistery.”

I hung my head and I started to cry.
She said, “You’ll forget me in the by and by.”

There was one last hug one tender squeeze,
and I let out a whimper that sounded like, “Please?”.

I begged, “Ya think that some time I might drop by?”
She said, “No dear, ‘cuz the well’s gone dry.”

I gave it a try.
Nothing left to say
