The Silo

“There’s a fence.  That means we are not welcome!”

“Oh, don’t be such a sissy, Ruth!  For once, let your sense of adventure out of its cage!”

“No, Beth, it is trespassing. What if the owner comes after us with a gun!”

“You watch way too many movies, Sister-mine! C’mon, let’s go see what’s inside the silo.”

Ruth grudgingly climbed up and over the fence after her sister and made her way cautiously to the tall edifice.

“Stop, or I’ll shoot!” shouted a man, holding a rifle.

Ruth fell to her knees, crying, when from behind came her friends.

  1. Oh….so once again, this can go in different directions. So is this a celebration or a tragedy? Inquiring minds want to know….:) well done.


  2. Haha, for a moment there I was worried (having just learned how dangerous silos can be). What a way to have a surprise party. Fun story. 🙂


    • I admit to having thought of going dark but I (correctly, it seems) assumed many would. Besides, the fingers typed what they wanted to! I’m starting to understand the whole “stories-write-themselves-thing!”

    • You know what Randy? I LOATHE practical jokes. My husband did one to me. Never tried it again.
      I have, however, been surprised for my birthday four times (that is OK, there is no feel of danger to those!)
      I hope you find the perfect one!
