I could hear Brogan in living room. Finally, a minute to drink my coffee in peace. Then BANG! I heard him slam the truck on the floor, then silence. Then BANG! again this time followed by an angry cry. Melt down. Through his tears he told me his truck needed new batteries. The dumper wasn’t dumping. While I rummaged for fresh batteries, there was a knock at the door. Brogan rushed to answer it. He returned with a small box post marked from New York City. Much to my surprise it contained a jar full of batteries. I put four of them in the truck. Nothing happened. I tried four more and again nothing.
They were all dead.
This is a continuation of an experiment. It’s hard to believe this is the 9th week! Each week there is a 100 word short story photo prompt challenge posed by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. My challenge to myself is to connect these photos into one seamless story. Click the blue frog to read other stories inspired by this photo.
