“There’s people there now, but I’ll clean up after them, check on the well.”
Johanna couldn’t believe her fortune in finding a special remote location for her “gang” to base their retreat ride.
“I’ll take the tractor out there and brush-hog the meadow and grade the lane so you ladies can get in and set up your tents. My, having visitors does keep us young.”
“Okay”, smiled Joanna, reaching for her helmet, “We’ll all be back next weekend, it sounds great, like a dream come true.”
“Yes”, said the older woman, her eyes gleaming, “It’s a dream come true.”

The best dreams are wishes
You should blog your lines. I’ll help you get started. Does this sufficiently follow the thread of creepy well stories? Because you know it can’t end well for these wild women motorcyclists.
If it’s your wish, you may join Megan and me for breakfast at 8 tomorrow. Island Kitchen. My treat.
I’ll meet you there.
There’s nothing like having a dream come true. What a dream response to a variety of prompts!
Thanks for coming by Norah. I am going to have to get busy and resolve this tale, because this one is stuck in the middle; it’s meant to foreshadow a nightmare for the motorcyclists.

I’m not sure I’ll like the end of that! 🙂
I hope this dream retreat is all that is hoped for by the gang. This active older woman may want a chance to ride one of those motorcycles.
You’ve gone to the well for this serial story, following the bucket to its depths. It may yet bring you, the writer, a surprise. I like the use of terms like “brush-hog the meadow.”
