Challenge: Write a story in 25 words or less.

Theme: Spring

Participants: Anyone. You don't have to be an author. I'm not.

What you can't do: If you are an author, do not mention it. This means no links.

What you can do: If you are an author, put information about your books on your profile page. Link your books, webpage, or Amazon author page.

Comments: If you want to comment on another person's writing, please be positive. This is not a critique thread. We want any and all participants to feel comfortable and enjoy participating, whether they've never written anything more than an email or they've sold 20,000 books.

I will begin in my next post. Have fun!

"Spring has sprung!" shouted Gram.

Listening to the storm lashing the windows, she sighed.

Gram laughed.

Why not?

They danced across the floor giggling.

She glared when the clerk asked, "Do you need a coil spring, a die spring, a leaf spring, a gas spring, or a compression spring?"

A new thread from our fascinating, enchanting, irresistible muse. I have a renewed, vibrant spring in my step while searching for fresh stories to digest.

What caused the watch spring to become sprung, overwinding causes a watch spring to become sprung. Did one overwind?

With no chance of escape till the spring thaw, the group looked around wondering who the murderer was, and if they would all survive...

The fresh new challenge, like clean Spring air, put new spring in his step. He offered Anna a draught from the spring of everlasting gratitude!

Cherry blossoms signaled spring and time for his return.
She watched every day.
Then she spotted him and sprang into action.
They embraced and kissed.

He paused at the spring to take a much needed drink of cool, fresh water. Ahead the mountain beckoned him on to it's mysteries within.

-She likes diking but shes amazing.
I tried flirting but she kept refusing.
She's not into parfuming, she already smells like spring.-

Even in early spring, the sun here was fierce as he climbed the rocky slope. A fresh footstep caught his eye. He was not alone...

@ Cobra N --
Ah, a classic murder-mystery moment -- the trapped-with-a-madman device -- you have captured the genre in 25WOL -- I love it!

With a new spring in his step, he went into the flower shop to buy a dozen red roses.

He checked the map, was he wrong? No, there just ahead he could see something. With a spring in his step, he entered the cave.

It was a dark, stormy night when the Gnarled Cliche sprang upon us.

Oh, the conflict - Man versus Nature!

At dawn, the victor alone rose...

A huge dog leaped out of the shadows; which caused me to spring into action.

We overheard our neighbors complaining about the awful screeching cat fight that lasted all night. We hadn't even noticed that old squeaky bed spring.

Cobra N says:
As he suspected, someone was here already, the dust clearly showed another set of footprints. Had he sprung a trap?

(to be continued... if I can now think of somewhere for this to go, it started as a good idea, but...)

Lol!!! That's wonderful, Art. :)

@Cobra N --
Perhaps the footprints do not belong to a nemesis?

Cobra N says:
As he rounded the corner he stopped. "Hello Ella." A woman came forward. "Hello Joshua." Springing into action, she rushed forward for a kiss.

PS - Good guess Oldog!

The breeze gently ruffled her goldenrod hair as she rode. Synchronized with each rhythmic undulation, I was soon hypnotized watching my granddaughter's spring mounted steed.
