Inside And Out #carrotranch #flashfiction #loganandmorgan

This week’s #carrotranch prompt is

July 16, 2020, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less), write a story that expresses the phrase, “scream inside your heart.” Who is involved and why is the scream contained? Go where the prompt leads

‘Can I ask you something, Logan?’

‘Would it stop you if I said no?’

‘Do you ever scream inside your heart?’

‘Hmm. I mumble in my stomach a bit if I eat broccoli.’

‘I’m talking about screaming in…’

‘And when you made me do that jog, my buttocks screamed for about a week…’

‘No, listen, I’m serious…’

‘… and my uncle Barney has a heart murmur…. which I suppose might become a scream if he doesn’t stick to that raw radish diet…’




‘If I’m that passionate about something it has to come out.’

‘Me too.’

‘I know.’

    A raw radish diet could be an unpleasant cure, Geoff. I do think these two are bonding on their journey.
