“Hey, you alive over there?”

Word count: 50. Written for Sammi Cox’s Month of Mini Writing Challenges. This is for Day 25 – “Tell a story only using dialogue in less than 50 words.” I haven’t been able to do nearly as many of them as I was hoping, so I’m glad to get at least one more in before the end of the month.
Sammi was pointing out how tricky it is to write a story with only dialogue, and I agree — but that just makes the challenge more fun. One of my all-time favorite stories that I wrote has nothing but dialogue between two people. Check it out: Burning Questions.
I should probably clarify that “Stones!” is a curse in Pyann/Medowin, not the other guy’s name.
