I really enjoy doing these. It is a real challenge writing a story with only 100 words. Here’s mine and I’m proud to say it’s exactly 100 words.
Ever since I met Linda I planned the perfect picnic. After asking over and over, here we are walking hand in hand to my favorite spot in the woods, under the wild grapes. I will boast about fermenting them last year and surprise her with a taste of my finest. I will share my dream of producing vintage wine and selling it. In the future I hope to have my own vineyard.
“It’s hard to believe this languid day,” I say, “two nights ago we had that horrific storm. Just around the bend … My grapes! The storm destroyed them.”
