Re: 100 Word Story

Sisters Ann Ode and Cath Ode didn’t get on at all. They were two opposites so it was no surprise that things got heated when Ann and Cath bumped into each other at the Bus Bar. In fact Cath Ode was solenoid that she was glowing red, and hot ions were flying about everywhere. Their mother Di Ode stepped in to rectify things, screening them from others in the bar. She soon brought them down to earth and discharged the situation. Ann and Cath have now gone off grid so we can expect a quiescent period until they touch again.

Nice and clever one Nigel and exactly 100 words

Just a shame one of the 2 sisters wasn't called Natalie but that would have ruined it !

Re: 100 Word Story

2 very beautiful sisters, Carbonna and Arcadia Electrode found it hard to make enough money from their daily employment so decided to make extra money by selling their favours on the street. They sorted out what to wear and which streets they were going to work. After their first night the 2 girls returned home to compare earnings. Carbonna had earned 200. Arcadia had only earned 41.50


Amazed at her sisters low earnings Carbonna enquired where the odd amount of 1.50 came from. Arcadia replied " All of them "


"Ha, you never were a very bright spark" said Carbonna.

The old ones are still the best !

I thought the whole idea of the thread was to use your imagination and create your own 100 word story. As this is the second time you've mentioned Bookhippo maybe I'm wrong
