What Are the Odds? – Friday Fictioneers

Hola my peeps!  Yessiree, it’s me, participatin’ in the weekly activity known as Friday Fictioneers which starts on a Wednesday, coz that’s how we roll… Get in early, keep up with the new arrivals and Bob’s your uncle!  This week, our hostess with the mostest, Rochelle, has selected a photo from Lisa Fox.  Don’t ask me why I went where I did. I just did. Coz that’s how I roll 😉 Plus, OK… maybe when I first saw the image smaller, I saw something else. But since my brain went there, who am I to redirect it?  If’n you come up with something more betterer, then please, by all means, click on the frog below and add the link to your 100-word story!

There’s the pistol!  And they’re off!  We can barely tell one from the other.  Round the bend they go and it’s Smiley-Joe in the lead. Not too far behind is Jack-in-the-Box with Happy-Go-Lucky sneaking up.  Lucky Charm is at the back of the pack and there is no way he’s gonna be a contender!

Wait! What’s going on?  There he goes… he’s surging outta the pack!  Holy crap! He’s past Suzie-Q, now Sweet-Cheeks.  He’s closing in on Happy-Go-Lucky!

My God! I’ve never seen anything like it.  It’s like he’s possessed!  Whoa!  What an upset!  No one saw Lucky Charm coming!

K. Normally I don’t dig on explanations to stories, choosing for readers to make of it what they will.  However, let me just say I thought I saw a vine climbing higher…
