Boys of Summer…

The 99 word Carrot Ranch story challenge details are below:

April 5, 2018, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) write a silly sun story. Up north, “sun silly” is the energetic and playful response to returning sunlight. It could also be an April Fool’s jest, a silly story, or a reaction to spring fever. Be silly and write playfully! Go where the prompt leads.

Boys of Summer

We were heading down the Pacific Coast Highway cruising with the top down; hair dancing in the breeze. Tank top and shades on; Mr Sunshine had his hat on and was out to play. Not a cloud in the sky.

We didn’t have a care in the world on those blissful summer afternoons. Just me and my four girls: young, beautiful, free. The radio blared the tunes of the day.  We laughed turning it up as the voice of Don Henley came through the speaker. We sang until our voices were hoarse, ‘after the boys of summer have gone’…


Onto my other challenge: the Six Word Story.  Page Flutter‘s word prompt on the theme of hope today is ‘storm’s end’ and here is my offering:

Sunrise followed stormy dusk – spectacular horizon.

    1. Thanks Charli, I think we’ve all been there in that moment, regardless of song, there is always a tune you associate with summer when driving with your mates. I just picked this one because I love it (although a bit before my time) and it fits the prompt well x
