Technicolor Clown

One of my challenges is to create stories in exactly 99 words that span a distance of time, have some drama, but also find conclusion.


Technicolor droplets spattered the pavement.


“Why are you so sad Mr. Clown?” It was a small girl.


The clown, looking down, spoke through tears. “My son was in a terrible auto accident. They say he’ll never walk again.”


“Oh, is that all.” the little girl spoke cheerfully


Angered, the clown raised his head to scold the impertinent child. He saw then the  plates attached to her shoes. Rods rose to her tiny waist and a contagious smile filled her face.


The clown smiled back, “I have two tickets to the circus. Would you like to walk there with me?”
