This is my entry for this week’s 100-Word Challenge for Adults. The challenge this week was to use the words: “LIBERTY, EMPIRE, APPLE, YELLOW, and ENORMOUS” to create a story of 100-words.
Elijah Red and Portnoy Yellow stood gazing into the boughs of their creation. Their efforts had come to fruition. It was time.
The Kingdom of the Red Apple had forever been at odds with the Yellow Apple Empire. The feud was threatening to explode again. The younger generation needed antiquated-reminding there must be difference or both worlds would crumble. War was imminent.
Elijah grinned. “This ought to set them on their ears.”
“Hope so,” Portnoy nodded.
Together the old men reached up and plucked another enormous half-yellow half-red apple from the tree.
“What shall we call them?” Portnoy asked.
