I came across this list of writing prompts for May, 2017 on the Writer’s Write page and thought I’d give it a whirl. I’m going to try for a series of drabbles (precisely 100-word scenes) that will flow together featuring the characters from my Adventures with Harrison and Mason flash fiction story scenes.
May 13, 2017 — Cayon Deep
Note: Per Merriam-Webster online, “cayon” isn’t even a word. It does exist as a proper noun—as a place and as a surname (also apparently a type of olive)—but not as a regular word. It might have been a typo (probably “canyon” considering it was paired with “deep”), but I went with using the word as it’s listed, using it as a surname.
(Harrison’s 3rd-person POV)
“That’s where he’s playing,” Mason led them toward the ballfield on their left where players were already taking their positions. “I guess we’re too late to talk to him before the game starts.”
They settled in a row on the bleachers. “Which one is your friend?” Jaxon asked.
Harrison spotted him first and pointed. “There. That’s Andy Cayon deep in center field.”
“Good old Andy.” Mason smiled and nudged Jaxon. “He was my dinosaur bone hunting partner.”
Gramps cackled. “You two dug so many holes in my backyard. Remember when I buried that ham bone for you guys to find?”
To be continued tomorrow using ‘two holes.’
All the drabbles in this series using the May, 2017 prompts can be found here (note: to read them in order, you’ll need to scroll to the bottom of the category list and read up from there).
