Daniel prodded the killer vines with some annoyance as they tried – once again – to swallow a passerby’s wagon. “Cut that out. That’s rude!” he shouted at them.
The vines drew back, withering into the ground, only a few small shoots hovering above the grass.
“If you’re bored, why don’t you go attack one of those party schools, one of those ones where the kids go to party not study. Make it a little more distinguished-like. They’ll hate it. You’ll have a grand time.”
The vines took his advice and left.
New England never was the same after that.
This is my post for Friday Fictioneers, where every week we get together and post 100 word stories in response to a prompt. Oh, and occasionally have fun doing so, although I’m not supposed to tell you that part.

How clever of you! Great story and idea! Brilliant – in fact! Love it, love it! Nan 🙂
Thanks Nan! Glad you enjoyed it!
Funny story! Oh those vines would be annoying. Of course, the sacrifice was all that greenery. That’s too bad.
Watch out Hah-vahd Yahd….
Lol. Thx Randy!
them must be young killer vines to have minded so quickly to the reprimand. ha! love the suggestion the character gave since the vines appeared bored. good one!
He certainly seems to have the killer vines under control. I like the way he’s so casual about them!
Now that’s one way to weed out the poor students. Well imagined.
Nice take on the prompt, although now those unexpected drunk students will be dealing with vicious vines.
That’s okay. No one will believe them anyway 😉
Do I detect a reference to Ivy League?
😉 maybe. Thx for dropping by.
Anne, Funny story. 😀 I could see the vines slinking back when they were repremanded. They certainly have a happy home in the east. Well written. 🙂 —Susan
I snickered all the way through. Nice work.
