And here’s today’s story, based on this prompt to write a 100 word story.
Mike’s bike was squeaking and it was bothering him something awful. He did not know where it was coming from. It wasn’t far home, but it seemed endless.
He was distracted.
He didn’t see the duck family until he was almost on top of them. He slammed on his brakes and immediately tumbled forwards.
He landed hard and was winded for a moment. He shook his head as he gingerly rose.
He didn’t have a scratch. The bike was fine. And the duck family had waddled on. He continued on his way.
He did not even hear the squeak anymore.
