I have another drabble for you today. For those of you who don't know, a drabble is a story told in exactly 1oo words.
Today's word: PRATTLE
Prattle is defined as talking at length in a foolish or inconsequential way. My friends and I prattle a lot, so I'm familiar with this word.
Enjoy! Or don't, I suppose. It's up to you!
“The apocalypse is supposed to happen next week,” Aaron says cheerfully as he skips another rock across the pond.
Laney laughs. “Wasn’t it also supposed to happen a couple of years ago?”
Aaron nods. “Yup. If people keep saying it, someone is bound to be right eventually.”
“That’s true.” She takes her shoes off one at a time and dips her toes into the cool water.
“How do you think the apocalypse will happen?” he continues with a grin. “Will it be zombies? Aliens? Earthquakes?”
“Hmmm.” Laney taps her chin. “Chocolate shortage.”
They continue to prattle until sunset, perfectly content.
