This week’s Friday Fictioneers 100-Word challenge was hard for me. I just couldn’t get “connected” with those antique cars. But finally, thanks to Orville and Julie-Bell, I managed to come up with something. If you’d like to join the fun follow the link and get the details.
My story is below Al’s photo prompt.
“Orville! Stop pretending we’re out of gas, and get me home!”
“But – ”
“Stop. Aunt Pearl always said never trust any man who drives a crank-up machine with no top.”
“Oh, Julie-Bell … Honey,” Orville cooed, wrapping his arms around her. “Just one little kiss.”
Julie squirmed, blushed, fluttered her eyelids. “Well …”
“That’s my girl.”
Just as Orville’s lips settled firmly in place, the sky burst open, and drenched the lovers.
“Now look what you’ve done,” Julie wailed.
Orville hopped out and went to crank the motor. “Well, at least I can skip the cold shower when I get home.”

Oh, Sandra, that last line made me laugh out loud. I’d say you connected quite well, my dear. Thank you!
Cracked a smile with that last line.
Good one Sandra! 🙂
That was a serious laugh out loud ending!
I’m glad. Thank you.
That’s funny and if she didn’t hear him above the sound of the engine he might have got away with it!
Ha! If Julie causes a cloud burst with every kiss she may stay single for a long time–or get swept away by a man who lives in drought stricken country. Either way, Orville should find his brother and get back to inventing the airplane.
On the other hand, putting a top on his car would be much simpler than inventing an airplane.
Delightful! I love the character’s names.
Thank you. I rather liked those names myself.
LOL … a good belly laugh at the end. Fun write …
This made me laugh and followed a similar theme to my own
Good. Laughter was the mood I was in. I haven’t had a chance to read more than 4 or 5 of the others yet, but I’ll definitely make yours the next on my list.
