Here are my 95 words πŸ™‚



β€œXavier, did you run the tractor today?”

β€œAyuh, Ma, I did. Ain’t Pa gonna be pleased?”

β€œDarn right he will be if you’s remembered to separate the heads beforehand. Your Pa, he hates it when the brains spill out and muck up the field.”

β€œAyuh, I remembered, don’ worry. I even removed the intestines.”

β€œYour Pa will be proud, Xavier!”

β€œAin’t that Bessie, Ma? Looks like Pa’s back, with them new prospectors. I wonder what they’ll do when they realize we conned them!”

β€œOh they’ll be crushed, son!”

Xavier and his mother laughed together.

Hi! I'm Sam, an 18 year old certified mad chick who likes to imagine that she can write. I live in India, a colourful, diverse country which is sadly getting polluted everyday by more and more violence....something no citizen can be proud of. I enjoy reading-basically horror, watching romcoms and horror flicks(yes, again horror, my favourite being Sinister- its psychotic just like me), eating( food, oh yes, I love foooooood), attending college, and most of all(oh, do stay and listen a while longer) I love animals. I have periodic urges to own and look random "pets". Currently I wish to own a baby elephant, which I will name Thama. I write to express what I feel, to keep that small creative bone alive in my body, and to make readers happy. I hope you like what I write!
