The End Of Days #carrotranch #morgandandlogan

This weeks carrot ranch prompt is about escape. Logan and Morgan have been quarantining since returning from the USA and now that is ending…

March 25 2021, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less), write an escape. It can be daring or subtle. Who is escaping from what and why? Go where the prompt leads!

‘One more day, Logan.’

‘Yes, thank heavens.’

‘It’s been a blast, hasn’t it?’

‘What has?’

‘Don’t be obtuse. America, hunting the ranch, fostering two goats…’

‘That bloody Kid. If I ever see him again…’

‘He was a character.’

‘Oh sure. You couldn’t make him up.’

‘?’

‘And you think ten days of quarantine has been fun?’

‘We’ve had a chance to do all sorts.’

‘I didn’t think it possible to binge watch every episode of the Simpsons without losing your mind.’

‘Hidden depths.’

‘More like exposed shallows. There’s one thing I’ll miss.’

‘Yes?’

‘You.’

‘Really?’

‘No, of course not.’

About TanGental

My name is Geoff Le Pard. Once I was a lawyer; now I am a writer. I've published several books: a four book series following Harry Spittle as he grows from hapless student to hapless partner in a London law firm; four others in different genres; a book of poetry; four anthologies of short fiction; and a memoir of my mother. I have several more in the pipeline. I have been blogging regularly since 2014, on topic as diverse as: poetry based on famous poems; memories from my life; my garden; my dog; a whole variety of short fiction; my attempts at baking and food; travel and the consequent disasters; theatre, film and book reviews; and the occasional thought piece. Mostly it is whatever takes my fancy. I avoid politics, mostly, and religion, always. I don't mean to upset anyone but if I do, well, sorry and I suggest you go elsewhere. These are my thoughts and no one else is to blame. If you want to nab anything I post, please acknowledge where it came from.

    Great repartee. Love it!
    Good thing they didn’t get Covid or they wouldn’t be escaping just yet.

    “Exposed shallow”! Simpson’s expose such deeply. Glad the boys made their way home and survived quarantine. Jabs next? The vaccine sort.
