Can’t This Cow Go Any Faster?
By Jeff Baker
As the cow trundled across the unused cornfield, Nick marked of a spot on the map.
“Your Dad’s old fountain pen still working?” Alex said.
“Best it can jostling around on a cow.” Nick said, shaking the pen.
“Crazy!” Alex said.
“No crazier than heading off with the man you love on a cow?”
“We should at least get married on a motorcycle.” Alex said.
“You realize if we get married, you’d be Alex Rodriguiz?” Nick said playfully, kissing the back of Alex’s neck.
“Shuuut up!” Alex said, looking back with a big grin.
AUTHOR’S NOTE: Somehow the first of the month and the monthly Flash Fiction Draw Challenge just blew right past me and I only found out today! 🙂 So, I decided to do something very short; a “Drabble.” That’s a story 100 words, no more no less. (I’m counting the title, not my byline.) Oh, and the draws for what goes into the story were (thanks Jeff Ricker!) a Farm field, a fountain pen and a romance. Hope you enjoyed this story! ——jsb, Oct. 11, 2021.
