Many thanks to Rochelle @ Rochelle Wisoff-Fields-Addicted to Purple for again distance-herding us through another Friday Fictioneers. The challenge is to write a story based upon a photo prompt, today by Jennifer Pendergast.
My challenge was to write a complete story (beginning, middle, and end) in 100 words or less. The photo prompt led me to the American West. That triggered an old TV show (western genre). I then found some inspiration in songs by Eric Clapton and Willie Nelson.
I added videos at the end in case you want to see what I’m talking about. The complete TV show is there. It’s too long to watch it all, but the intro is informative.
Title: Caballero Revenge
Genre: (Copycat – Hysterical) Fiction
Loco was in full gallop when Pancho yelled, “Santa Mierda, Cisco. A coal train. What we gunna do now?”
“Diablo says we jump between the cars. The posse will never catch us.”
“Loco say you both loco. We go around. Ride to the rear.”
“No, Pancho. To the front. We’ll shoot the engineers and take the train.”
“But Cisco, we are the good ones. We don’t kill and steal trains.”
“Ah, but Pancho, we do now since you shot the deputy.”
“Oh, Cisco, I only did that because you shot the sheriff.”
Thusly, the Cisco Kid and Pancho became outlaws.
Look both ways, especially if you shoot the sheriff.
Mind the gaps in trains, but ride to the front.
