A lot of big things are happening in my life right now, but soon there will be some major changes coming to this blog and my other blog, which I rarely update and will likely be used as the sandbox for my major changes. Anyhow, here’s my story for this week, and there will be more coming down the line.
The Valley Road
by Miles Rost
The old men looked out from the porch, onto the road that passed the house.
“Did you get a look at that girl in the truck”?
“Nah, did she look fine?”
“No way. She was pregnant as can be!”
“What’s the story?”
“From what I got told, she apparently had a lee-ay-son with a kid from across the tracks.”
One of the old men just shook his head.
“These kids today. They get into trouble, and have to have us bail them out. So, what’ll happen to the kid?”
“No clue. That’s the Valley Road there. Means she ain’t coming back this way no more.”
Nicely drawn image of the old guys, and a great song!
My story kinda followed the song’s premise: The Valley Road being the one that sent people away to deal with their problems.
Nice one, Miles. I like this one. It’s got a good flow to it and good dialogue. 🙂
That’s kinda what I was going for. Especially in my confused and addled state.
