I schedule the challenge to go out around 6.30 am UK time, but pingbacks have to be approved manually so might not show immediately. This could be because I’m late accessing my blog or due to time differences, but I will get there, I promise!

Sammi’s Weekend Writing Prompt #216 – 80 Words using Tether
By Tessa Dean July 2021
**********80 words using tether
Scott brought the dog, Micro Chip, out of the house on a leash and headed into the backyard. He noticed the neighbor’s cow had wandered into their yard again. He would have to call and let them know it was over here.
Scott took Chippy, as he was known, out to the stake where he tethered him on the rare occasion he had to leave him outside. Due to Eileen’s fear of dogs, he had to bring him out tonight.
Returning to his desk, Scott opened a browser and asked Eileen which background check she used. He pulled it up and had her sign in and open the report. A smiling face met them. He certainly wasn’t homely. No wonder the college coeds were all over him and since he proclaimed himself an eligible bachelor the women flocked to him and he welcomed the attention.
With Eileen, Kyle and Sarah reading over his shoulder he worked his way down the report. “Wow, what a piece of work,” Scott said as he finished reading. Sarah was horrified over what she read and was terrified that Eileen could be in serious danger. This wasn’t just a man getting his thrills watching sexy girls. He was a menace to society from what she had heard from Eileen and from what the report said. She worried about Eileen even more.
Eileen was a young girl and even though she had a fiancé she was still at risk if this man was fixated on her and it sounded like he was. They would need to think about this very carefully.
“Oh Sarah,” Scott said. “The neighbor’s cow is over drinking in our pond again. Can you give her a call and let her know?”
