Story Challenge of the Week

It’s Monday again, and we all know that Monday’s are story challenge days! So, today I have a very, very broad theme for you, but it’s a good one. You probably know the rules, but if you’re new: You must write a story of at least a hundred words, and not more than five hundred (if you want to post it as a comment – if it’s just for yourself, then it can be as long as you want).  The story must be about the theme given in this post.  So,  if the theme I give you is Life, don’t write a story about the lord of the underworld.  If the theme is War, don’t write a story about a farmer planting his crops.  Themes are very broad, so it really shouldn’t be hard to stay within a given theme, but I teach, so I know that some people have trouble with this.

Your theme: Simplicity
