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.
