Jemma: Friday Fictioneers 100 word story challenge

Jemma stared out into the morning fog and just absorbed the beauty that was Calabash Station.

She’d gone into the west paddock early that morning looking for a stray sheep. Billy had left the gate open again. That irresistible idiot Billy, Jemma really wasn’t sure what she was going to do with him.

As the fog began to recede she saw the sheep grazing below.

Jemma and her horse Pinto returned the sheep to its paddock and securely shut the gate.

Jemma looked at her watch and smiled. She still had enough time to go and have breakfast with Billy.


Norma: Friday Fictioneers 100 word story challenge

The farmer had left the gate open.

Norma felt such extreme excitement at this realisation that the poor old ewe nearly choked on the grass she was eating.

Norma looked around to make sure she wasn’t being watched and then made for the gate like a slow and wobbly bat outta hell.

Norma trotted as fast as she could, but the Farmer was pulling up his truck and throwing her in the back before she had a chance to blink.

The Farmer put Norma back in the paddock and locked the gate.

Norma sat defeated, dreaming of her almost escape.
