Young Guns – #AtoZChallenge #BlogchatterA2Z

I had only a partial view of him, but it would have to do.

I aimed carefully, and fired.

And as I heard him cry out, my face lit up.

I imagined his newspaper turning red…with the colored water of my water-pistol. That’d teach Dad for scaring me with that toy snake yesterday.


277 characters.

Written as a part ofย Twittering Tales, hosted by Kat Myrman. The objective, as the name suggests, is to write a story in 280 characters or less.

This is also my entry for the #AtoZChallenge and #BlogchatterA2Z. Today’s letter was Y, which, in my story, stands for Young Guns.

    What a terrific post! I spend a couple of minutes on reading,
    and I am so excited by the information I received, by the way
    of writing it reminded me this page It’s really tough to find something valuable on that topic.
    But this author seems to be a real professional because there’s a
    special style in his writings. I will subscribe to his new books, just
    not to skip anything. This post works its own reading.
