This week at the Carrot Ranch, Charli Mills challenged writers to In 99 words (no more, no less), write a story using the phrase, “Oh, my.” It can be used in storytelling or dialog. What is the cause for such a response? Have fun with this one! Go where the prompt leads!
I’ve written another episode for Amy and Lucy. I hope you enjoy it.
Amy, Lucy and the Cookies
“I’m home!” Dad crouched at the door; arms outstretched ready to cuddle his girls.
“Shh, in here, Dad,” Lucy whisper-called from the kitchen.
“Oh my,” said Dad, surveying open doors, packets spilling contents on counter tops and floor, bowls, dishes and spoons fighting for space in the sink, and two bright-eyed floury girls.
“What are you making?” he asked aloud. “Other than a mess?” inside his head. “Where’s Mum?”
“Resting. She’s got a headache,” explained Amy. “Chocolate cookies.”
“To make her feel better,” said Lucy. “Wanna help?”
“Can I lick the spoon?”
“Okay,” the girls giggled.
Thank you for reading. I appreciate your feedback. Please share your thoughts.
Note: The collection of stories made in response to the previous prompt A Story with a Lie, including mine, can be read at the Carrot Ranch.
