75 word story

Here's a 75 word story I wrote for this writing forum.  The subject is "Outsiders."


Ponyboy glanced out the window. There were so many new skyscrapers that Tulsa’s art deco skyline was swallowed up.

He glanced down again. No new messages.

Maybe Darry and Sodapop didn’t make it. The sales guy had warned them of the risks, but there was no dissuading Darry.

So here Ponyboy sat, a hundred and fifty years from home, and alone in a way that nobody else on the planet could ever be.

A new project - I'll write your story!

Give me the bones of a story - beginning, middle, end, as much detail as you'd like.  Add character names, plot elements, genre, tone (should the story be serious or funny), etc, whatever you'd like. 

I'll then write your story.  Word count and time frame will depend on how much fun I have with it, but I'll try to have it done in a few days to a week.   

Let's see how this goes. 

(This isn't an April Fool's joke - I really want to do this!)
