Daily Writing Prompt (04/23/2017): The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (219 Words)

Today’s writing prompt comes from Mark Twain’s The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. I wrote my completed excerpt with a Pilot Metropolitan gel pen using a medium blue refill. The prompt is a total of 219 words.

“Oh, well, that’s all right, because a dream does tire a body like
everything sometimes.  But this one was a staving dream; tell me all
about it, Jim.”

So Jim went to work and told me the whole thing right through, just as
it happened, only he painted it up considerable.  Then he said he must
start in and “‘terpret” it, because it was sent for a warning.  He said
the first towhead stood for a man that would try to do us some good, but
the current was another man that would get us away from him.  The whoops
was warnings that would come to us every now and then, and if we didn’t
try hard to make out to understand them they’d just take us into bad
luck, ‘stead of keeping us out of it.  The lot of towheads was troubles
we was going to get into with quarrelsome people and all kinds of mean
folks, but if we minded our business and didn’t talk back and aggravate
them, we would pull through and get out of the fog and into the big
clear river, which was the free States, and wouldn’t have no more
trouble.

It had clouded up pretty dark just after I got on to the raft, but it
was clearing up again now.
