Alternate Prediction – Carrot Ranch Story

Two of the three crows

Three crows landed near Pablo. Two of them pretended to peck around for treasure while the leader laid into Pablo with an obnoxious, “Caw! Caw! Caw!. Fortunately, Pablo was fluent in this particular dialect of crow. Crows don’t stop by without a message they feel they must deliver:

“You will experience enrichment beyond your puny imagination. All those plans you’ve been making will fail. They are nothing compared to the reality that awaits you. Any questions?”

Pablo and this crow had previous encounters. “Do I have a choice?”

“Unfortunately, all you can do is mess things up a bit.”


Linked to Carrot Ranch’s January 10: Flash Fiction Challenge on the theme of the idea of “enrichment”. The challenge is to write a 99-word story (excluding title word count) on the theme. Come join us with your own story.

    “All That Glitters is Gold And She is Buying
    A Stairway to Heaven to Stairway A Buying She is And Gold
    is Glitters
    That All”
    So We Live in
    A Dangerous
    Age Where
    Sweet
    Nothings
    May Be Googled
    And only Replayed
    Ahh But Still Now the
    Stair Way to Heaven Plays Both Ways
    “When She Gets There She Knows
    If The Stores Are All Closed All Are
    Stores The If Knows She There Gets She When”

    Crows Crying
    Of course God has/is
    Sympathy for ‘Crow Devils’
    Too Other Wise God is Not All….
