100 Word Challenge 


"Hey.  Harry.  You got any money?", asked Roger.

"Nah.  I'm busted.  Ain't like I got a job or nuthin'.", said Harry.

"Move over, man.  Gimme some space.  I wanna get warm, too.", commanded Roger.

"No problem, dude.  It's the only thing I got I can share.", lamented Harry.

"What?", asked Roger, a quizzical look on his dirt smeared face.

"Heat.  Warmth ... and room next to the fire.", said Harry as he scooted to one side.

"That's what I like about you, Harry ... always willing to share the wealth", said Roger.

I could actually see them, esp in the cold of this winter.

the dialogue was so real, I could almost hear the gruff laughing.

as always, your words are good ones.

Great dialogue! And I love that Roger feels, despite Harry's lack of money, that he's still wealthy.
