Write a one hundred word story that has a beginning, middle and end using the photo below (copyright:Janet Webb) as a prompt.)

Wasp nest

Here’s mine 100 words.


“Make sure you find them, still three missing.” Mom yells.

We leave watermelon seed spitters on the front porch to hunt for stray eggs. I sure don’t want to step on one barefoot next week.

“We’ll never find them.” I say.

“Sure we will. Hey check it out, a loofah.”

“In Grandma’s rock garden? Nah.”


“It looks like a beehive.”

He bends down, wiggles it. That’s when I run.  The egg hits me in the middle of my back. I turn slowly and pull the last two from my pockets. He runs screaming.

“Find them?” Mom yells.

Oh yeah.

    You should deal with big kids. The guys at the volunteer firehouse love to play tricks and pranks on each other. Supposedly no one gets hurt…

    Nice take. Cheers.
