In case you've been trying to follow along and feel lost, the vignettes are not in any particular order, just possible scenes from my WIP.  You can find many more author's stories on Madison Woods' site.

_ "What are you looking at Margot?"  Luke knelt beside her.

Carrie fastened her sweater and pulled Luke's jacket tightly around her shoulders.  "I don't suppose it's something useful, like food or something to start a fire."

Margot grinned up at Carrie.  "Eventually, but not today, it's an acorn throwing its first sprout."

"Acorns frequently sprout in the fall."

Margot frowned.  "You're missing the wonder, Carrie."

Luke clasped both Margot and Carrie's hands and then joined them together.  "There is something really beautiful about the moment when a thing first begins to grow."

Carrie, finally understanding, smiled.  "The possibilities are endless!"

I dig the excerpt. Also, quite the collection of flash fiction badges you have going on there! Nicely done!

Am I the only one that read more into the possibilities than perhaps was intended? I thought it was a great story, unique and different.

"There is something really beautiful about the moment when a thing first begins to grow."
Beautiful line... I don't have the previous context of these characters with me. This little interaction between the characters is nice!

Here's my attempt:
