Jess and Cindy Stumble Across the Ranch (flash fiction)

Jess and Cindy Stumble Across the Ranch

“If only our car hadn’t broken down. I hope this trail will lead somewhere.” Jess said. Cindy coughed.

“It’s rather dusty!”

The two women came to a ridge. Below them they saw a ranch.

“We’ve been here before! This is Carrot Ranch where Kid and Pal work. I wonder if they’re around.” Jess wondered. They walked to the fence.

“Look at all those carrots they have to wrangle.”

“Maybe we should take some so we can compare them to our ones.” Jess suggested.

“I don’t think it’s a good idea.” Cindy responded. “It may be regarded as carrot rustling.”

I think the entire story is a set up for the last line…

This was written with the prompt dusty trail provided by the Carrot Ranch October 1 Flash Fiction Challenge.
