John Marsden Writing Topic #504
Write a one-hundred word story in which no word is more than four letters long**
Jo went to her PO Box to look for her mail. At her PO Box she saw her mail and a new man. The man did look nice but she did not know if he was nice. She went over to him and said ‘hi’, he said ‘hi’ back. She then said to him, ‘do you want to go to a café for a cup of tea?’ He said ‘yes’ and off they went. The tea was nice and so was he, Jo did not have to fear him, in fact they did fall in love and wed. The end.
