What follows is offered in response to Velvet Verbosity's 100 Word Challenge. The challenge, this week, is "Feasting".
Quite, Alex. We'll stop soon. We'll get you something to eat.
I hope so. I could eat a horse. Can we stop at a Wendy's?
Wendy's? Sure, if we can find one. They're not as common as something like McDonalds. And we can't stay too long, okay? If your father catches up to us, there won't be any feasting on hamburgers. There won't be any feasting on anything.
I still don't understand, Mom. Why did we leave?
Why? Because I can't stay any longer. Because if I stay, he is going to kill me.
