    Congrats, Yes/No. An small object as reminder of a love story. At each tale it seems you are more master of the 99 words form.

    One interesting thing about requiring exactly 99 words (excluding title) is it forces one to focus.

    There is a new challenge at Carrot Ranch with the prompt "broken fence". https://carrotranch.com/2018/07/12/j...ion-challenge/ I also noticed it is Friday the Thirteenth today. Here's my story.

    ---------------------------

    Broken Fence

    The Fredericks bought Adkins Estate with farmhouse, barn and sheds. The farm maintained itself from land rentals to local farmers. There was also a notorious fence separating it from ancient Indian burial grounds.

    That’s why they bought it. They planned to rent rooms to people wanting to spend the night in a haunted house.

    They repaired the buildings but broke the fence to make it look spookier. They called their website “Visit Fredericks’ Freaky Ghost House”.

    Many rented rooms and left five-star reviews until it became known that after changes to the fence, the ghosts no longer felt welcome.
