Denise, of GirlieontheEdge, is our host for Six Sentence Stories that feature the word “beat“.
This week’s Six Sentence Story follows a recent Carrot Ranch flash that was perhaps too ambiguous. So here is a next scene in six sentences, and 99 words just for fun.

Wincing as she unrolled the blanket she’d brought with her, she announced that she was never going back there.
I can’t imagine how we’ll feed you, but we’ll think of something tomorrow, she smiled, happy that for now her friend was safe, peering with her through branches at the stars.
