Friday 55

Gather round, boys and girls, it's time for a 55 word story.  Make sure to share yours with the g-man.  He collects them, you know. 
 

The longer he rode, the more dust filled his throat.
He craved water. 

Gaze rotating from side to side, he scanned the horizon for Indians. 
Not the friendly kind. 
Would he reach the sheltering mountains before nightfall?

Suddenly…a scream. 

Car horn.

Amazing how caught up he got listening to L’Amour on his way to work.

Ha! Maybe that's why I never listen to books-on-tape in the car.

This was a real kicker of a surprise.

Happy Friday!

Great story. LOVE it. A good place to stop as I go get into my drive, being careful NOT to listen to a gripping story as I do.

Ha!
It could have been Roy Rodgers.
His buddy Pat Brady had a Jeep.
Loved your 55 Hope.
Thanks for playing, and have a Kick Ass Week-End
