Yeah Write #3: Microstory #241 – Outriders

Dust assaulted.  Two horses in braided, bit-less bridles hung head to hoof.  Riders pulled brims low, bandanas high, and duster collars straight.

“You’re barkin’ at knots.”

The other dug, found the panel, placed her hand upon the biolock and said,  “Balls out.”

    At first I had a Cormac McCarthy vibe. Two things caught me off guard. I am assuming “her” is a cowGIRL (woman) and the bio-lock. You turned all dystopian on us. Cool!

      Yes 🙂 Glad the dystopian theme came across. 42 words is tight!

    Nicely done! I liked the twist at the end, and the dialogue.

    Loved the twist at the end, the dichotomy of old west and biolocks!
