Can You Tell A Story In…

Here’s this week’s challenge for you – can you tell a story in five words? The word phone must appear somewhere in the story. For this one, you have two weeks to get your entry in 🙂

Here are your stories from last week. They had to feature the word old.

Paul Mastaglio:

Old joke? Didn’t need resurrecting!

Hugh Roberts:

Everything old was new again.


Old habits die softly. Evolution.

Fear not old bones. Invigorate.

Demented. Old man amok. Chaos.

Chelsea Owens:

“I’m too old for -” CRASH!

Who is Gary Oldman, really?

Her old life kept returning.

Old news is good lessons.

It’s not old, it’s antibacterial.

EDC Writing:

Not old – checkout girl slow.

She’s beautiful. Old eyes remind.


Old bones, meet the ground.

And a couple of longer ones:

Don Massenzio:

The face in the mirror says I’m old. My brain, however…

Bharul Chhatbar:

She grew old, but her mind…

Stranded, sustained, suffered, substantially she grew old.

To grow old is now an old phenomenon…

And one using last week’s prompt, red:

Roberta Writes:

The moon turned blood red.
The vampire sharpened his teeth.
