Here is another little story I wrote using the words from the online scrabble game “Words With Friends”. The words in bold are the words that were played on the game board. Hope you enjoy it!
They were modern day hobos, Quin and Helio. They always figured it would be fun to go on a tear, and join in the weekly races held in their little country town. The thing was, everyone knew them.
They’d been friends since childhood, always together, getting into all kinds of zany situations. Once upon a time, the older generation teased them, called them dotty, which maybe they were, but then, they didn’t care. They’d just laugh it off.
So, it was decided. They both took plenty of vitamins in the days before the race. They wanted to look hep, so they put on their fake furs and top hats, and stood in a row at the starting line.
The ref nudged the judge. “Look at them, the judge said. “I’d trade jobs with you, if I could.”
“Ley, you’re too anal for my job. You’d tag the wrong one, before the ink is even dry on the entry form.”
“Si, you have a point, Baal,” said Ley. They both laughed.
“But, what if you put a hex on them? When they get to mid point, they’ll probably shed those furs. They can vie it out better.”
“Don’t nag me, Ley. I’ll do it. I’m gonna make Quin veer off course. He will trip over his own feet, fall and skin his knee. It will ooze blood. We will rush him to the ER, and he will feel woe at that time. It’ll teach those two fakers a lesson. Don’t put on airs in this town – we know who you really are.”
“Ah,” said Ley, “very good. Shall we start the races?”
Baal nodded and smiled, as he shot the starter gun into the sky.
