Dream Big, Dream Often #carrotranch #flashfiction

Charli Mills’ prompt this week is

March 22, 2018, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story using the theme “follow your dreams.” Bonus points for throwing a badge into the tale. Go where the prompt leads.

‘Do you dream, Logan?’

‘Everyone dreams, Morgan.  It’s the brain processing stuff.’

‘Clearing out the crap?’

‘If you like.’

‘Like the bowels?’

‘Not exactly.’

‘I only ask because I was asked today if I wanted to follow my dreams.’


‘I’m not sure I want to.’


‘Take my cousin Killick. His dream involved a dwarf and fourteen bananas.’

‘Why fourteen?’

‘He had a Snow White fixation.’

‘Moving on, following you dreams is meant to be a positive.’

‘So’s having a good crap.’

‘There you go. No one said every pot of gold was full of chocolate.’

‘Very deep.’

    Some dreams are best left unsaid or quickly flushed! These two have taken off and who knows where they will lead us.
