A History of Rock
“Whatcha doing love?” Jess asked.
“Looking at these rocks. Most of them are extrusive igneous.” Cindy declared.
“They were once molten lava from a volcanic eruption, and formed basalt, or obsidian.” Cindy replied.
“Well you’re the one that went to college.” Jess stated.
“You don’t have to go to college to learn this stuff.”
“I know, but the farm keeps me busy enough.” Jess explained. Cindy smiled and gently threw one over to her. “This is pumice isn’t it?”
“Yes, it’s what happens when lava mixes with water. I thought you could use it on your feet!”
This was written with the prompt molten lava provided by the Carrot Ranch August 6 Flash Fiction Challenge.
