Crossing the line


Wednesday Challenge
Betty examined that line everyday, every single day.  Cars and trucks passed in a hurry to be somewhere.  In blurring speed, those cars and trucks terrified her.

 It has to be done! Betty determined. It is finally time to conquer that white line.

With a burst of speed, Betty raced, crossing "white line" to the other side of a busy road.  Huzzah! Betty hopped around. It is done!  I have crossed the road!  With that, Betty clucked and pecked at the green grass.

But how long would her happiness last?


The above chicken story is brought to you as my take on the Wednesday Word challenge to provide a break in your writing routine, take a chance on leaping across genres. Wednesday Word day was initially started by Delores at Under the Porchlight who is taking a break from computers (and I don't blame her at all).

The baton was passed on to a variety of bloggers.  This month Elephant's Child will be posting this week's challenge provided by  Margaret Adamson and her friend Sue.   You may write your take on the two photo prompts in E.C.'s comment section or write it at your own site.  Please link it back to  Elephant's Child, so we can find you!

  3. Such a brave chicken. And now she has done it, she doesn't need to do it again.

    1. Chicken brains are pretty small. Betty might think about the other side.

  4. Crossing the road is sometimes not as big a deal as we imagined. It does take bravery though, and sometimes you just have to go for it.

  6. I guess the grass really was greener on the other side.
    At first I thought Betty was a person! I wonder if she has realised that she is going to have to get back eventually?

    1. Many life lessons in this chicken dilemma. We all have to decide when and why to cross that line.
