My entry this week for Crap Mariner’s 100 Word Story Challenge. The topic was ”sparkle”, and I also used ”turquoise” from the Writers' Dash, but it wasn’t written at dash pace.

"Waiting for Twilight Sparkle"
A play in one act
by Tura Brezoianu

A country road. A tree. Two bedraggled old ponies. One used to be blue.

TURQUOISE (the blue one): Sunbeam.

SUNBEAM (the other one): What?

T: Why Sunbeam? I’m Turquoise, because I am, but you...

S: Call that turquoise? In the nineties, though, remember? We were respectable in those days. Now it’s too late.

T: But when Twilight Sparkle comes...

S: Will she come?

T: She sent word...

(Long pause.)

T: (getting up) Let’s go.

S: We can’t.

T: Why not?

S: We’re waiting for Twilight Sparkle.

(T sits down.)

(Long pause.)

S: Let’s go.

T: Let’s.

(They do not move.)
