For those who don’t know, Friday Fictioneers is a challenge to write a 100 word story from a picture prompt. It’s hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields, and anyone can play. Thanks for hosting, Rochelle! Check out the link at the end of my story to see what other fictioneers did with this week’s prompt.
Thanks for the photo, Doug. I hope I did it justice 🙂

The Author leaned on the fence, watching the Horse. Neither made a noise and the silence was pleasing.
Eventually, the Author spoke.
“Whatcha doin’, horsey?”
The Horse, of course, didn’t reply.
The Author, who was used to writing both sides of a dialogue, carried on without him.
“Jus’ watering my garden.”
“Whatcha doin’ that for, horsey?”
The Author continued in this vein for a while, but soon realised her story was going nowhere, so gave up and went on her way.
The Horse put down his hose and watched her go.
“Silly cow,” he said, and returned to his watering.
