Derp and Herp the Dwarfs huddled under the woodpile. Logs pressed on noggins but at least they could talk here. Moribund the Shadow Thing was hunting for them.
“We’re out of time,” Derp spat. “If we don’t have the gift by Wednesday he’ll fry our gizzards.”
“Has your nose gotten bigger?” Herp leaned closer, examining with his good eye.
“It’s got sort of a knobby thingy. Was that always there?”
Derp glared. Herp stared back. At least his good eye did. The other wandered off in another direction.
“Idiot”, Derp sighed and poked Herp in the good eye.
The above is my entry for the 100-Word-Challenge. The prompt was “Wednesday.”

Many of you know about the 100 Word Challenge that is run from 100wc.net. It is the original 100 word project and is for children under 16. We desperately need some more folks to comment of these brilliant pieces of work. I would be really grateful if you could add a note and a link on your blogs to encourage your readers to get involved. Many thanks!
Some of us over-16 folks here on WordPress have decided to participate in this challenge as well. Every week a prompt and deadline are posted here. Your goal is create a 100-word story around that prompt suitable for a PG-13 audience. Once your story is complete you can submit your weekly entry by clicking here.
This week’s prompt was “Wednesday”.
