CCC#30:The New Tractor (flash fiction)


The New Tractor


It was time for sowing the crops. Rather than borrow a tractor, Jess decided it was time to invest in one for the farm. So one morning as Cindy looked out from the veranda a new tractor suddenly appeared with Jess at the wheel. She noticed the main headlights looked like angry eyes. They stared at her. Cindy felt a chill go through her. Jess climbed out of the tractor smiling.

“What do you think babe?” she asked Cindy.

“It looks unfriendly.” Cindy replied not taking her eyes from it. “I don’t like how it looks at me.”

“It’s a tractor! It’s not alive.” Jess explained. “Look if you don’t like the way it looks at you, we’ll swap it for another. I can’t have my girl being unhappy.”

Jess walked over and gave her a warm hug. Cindy looked at the tractor again. It now stared at her evilly.

Please buy me a coffee! 🙂
