Mine mine mine

Like two gulls scrapping over a single stolen French fry, the twins screeched at each other.

“I saw him first!”

“Yeah, but, he asked me out!”

“That’s because he thought you were me!”

“Guess if you’d gone to the library like you told Mom, instead of sneaking into that club with Rhonda, it would have been you. Go on the date if you want, but I’ll tell Mom that you lied, then you’ll be grounded and won’t get to go anyway.”

“I hate you.”

“Look at the bright side. The ‘library’ is open late tonight. Maybe Rhonda wants to study.”


Note: Gulls always make me think of this scene from Finding Nemo, hence the title of today’s piece.

Think a picture’s worth a thousand words? Well, over at Friday Fictioneers, they only charge a hundred. That’s right, if you can create a complete story in 100 words, based on Rochelle Wisoff-Fields’ chosen photo for the week, then you, too, can link up!

    Very good. I really like the way you went with twins, and tied it to the birds, very subtly. This is so like teen sisters. Really enjoyed it.

    Dear Michelle,

    Stellar take on the prompt. Just enough reference. I could see and hear these two. My husband has identical twin cousins and this sounds like some of their escapades. Well written as always.

    Dear Michelle,

    That is exactly who I was talking about when I wrote about the Morrisey twins in my story last week.

    You so perfectly nailed this story. Nuance, dialog, humor, the works. Hats off to you for this masterpiece. I’m going to the ‘library’ tonight.

    AnElephantCant understand the ladies, but he reckons this is a pretty terrific representation of a gals’ conversation.
