I’ve always enjoyed Westerns!! The prompt this week is to write a story about what happens on the dusty trail and Respond by October 6, 2020.
Excitement is building at Carrot Ranch for TUFF – TUFF stands for The Ultimate Flash Fiction which is every Monday — October 5, 12, 19, and 26.
So here is my Oct 1st Flash Fiction take about how love must have been short and sweet in times of life and death.
The Darnedest Cowboy
The darnedest cowboy walked towards me. His cowboy boots churned up the dusty road. My heartbeat so loudly I swore it was going to giddy up, catch a ride on a wild horse and land on his Western shirt. His eyes twinkled as he dawdled a few feet away. He kicked a stone, spat some cheeky grits into the ground and walked right past, lassoing my heart with his.
I stayed still until I heard the deafening gunshot. Damn. Wild West gals sure don’t remember no dead cowboy long.
Love ain’t for dead buckaroos!

Oh! Marje your so fickle 💜
Ha ha! Its the hard life of the Wild West, Willow. You got to find a new beau when your old one dies! Lol. x
Yes indeed 🤣😂😂
I agree, Marje, Death of the cowboy does take some of the fun out of it.
That’s the Wild West for you. You win some you lose some. Tough times.
Thank goodness there are plenty more cowboys around, Marje. Must have been tough in those days.
Ha ha! Yes, a bit of a shortage with all of the shooting!
What a great start to the challenge. I certainly wasn’t expecting the gunshot! I can’t wait to see where you take this.
Hi Diana thank you. I was a bit wicked with that gunshot! The challenge starts for real on the 5th this was a practice! Lol.
The Carrot Ranch challenges are a blast. Enjoy!
Drop dead gorgeous was he?
Ha ha! Yes to die for…
This was a fun read. She really did learn how to move on quickily!
Ha ha yes she did!
Young love sweetest when sparked and short.
