No Strings Attached – Friday Fictioneers

Ya know when ya have an idea in yer head but it won’t go down on paper?  I think I finally sorta got it down.  This week’s lovely picture was donated by our lovely Sandra Crook.  Thank you, always, to Rochelle for hosting this fantastic challenge.  You’ve got me thinking in 100-word stories, Rochelle!  When I write anything else, I almost feel like I am rambling.  Okay, maybe I am.  But here.  HERE, I learn how to reign it in!

Should you want to try your hand at telling a 100-word story with beginning, middle and end, do click on the frog below and add yours.  It’s great fun and is so addictive.

No Strings Attached

“C’mon, Bobbie-Sue. I like you so much. We already kissed, why can’t I touch ya?”

“Billy-Joe, you been tryin’ to touch me since we were fifteen!  Why now?”

“Coz you know I’m right for you.  Nobody else can take care o’ you, like I can.”

“I ain’t ready to be tied down.”

“I promise you, no strings.  And I got protection.”

“All right then.  I’ll give you one night.”

The stars were out in the sky and in both of their eyes that night.


“No strings, Billy-Joe?  How about an umbilical chord?  Now you HAVE to take care o’ me.”

  1. You just brought high school right back to me–not the plot, but the soundtrack, Steve Miller names with a bit of the no-prospects- idle-coupling of John Mellencamp 😊

    Sound to me like Billy Joe didnt really know “what the facts is.” The umbilical cord was aa great unexpected transition–talk about strings being attached!

  2. I have a feeling Billy-Joe planned this all along. Love the part about the umblical cord at the end… oh, the irony. (Did you mean to spell it “chord”?) Très bien fait, Madame!

  3. Wonderful writing Dale, this makes me mad on so many levels. Ignorance… Manipulation… Who manipulates whom? Grrr… 😉
