Guess the Story

Copyright 2014 Melissa McConnell
Would anyone like to guess what short story (from my Tales from the Circle C Ranch collection) this picture will be part of? I have never posted this story on the blog. Can you guess:

1. the characters?
2. the setting?
3. the story problem?
4. how it ends?

  1. No, well, I could . . . or I could come up with my own story for this picture! I love writing short stories from pictures and this one looks fun. :D Too bad I don't have time. :)

  2. I know, but I'd better not tell. :P At least not yet, anyway...

  3. Well...that's tough. It looks like Andi and maybe Levi? I can only guess that hopefully Levi (or whoever is in the water) makes it out safely ;-)

  4. Umm... Andi and Johnny Wilson? They don't like each other until Andi saves Johnny and the make up? Or maybe it's Levi... I don't know because the setting looks like Washington. Maybe one of Jenny's brothers?

  5. Andi and Jenny? I'm guessing it is in Washington because of all the trees, and it's probably by the ocean because of the seagulls.
    Maybe, Andi and Cory in the same setting as above?

  6. Ummm... Andi and Cory? I'm guessing the setting has to do with the Pacific Cost or something? It looks like, maybe Cory, was swept of the dock while looking at the seagulls? And I'm guessing that Andi saves the day:D lol are you going to post the story Mrs. M?

    1. No, I won't post this one. It is going into the Tales from the Circle C Ranch, that I am compiling. A bunch of selected stories I wrote for the blog, plus some new ones, since somebody long ago asked, "Can we have those stories in a book?"

      So there will be old ones and new ones. :-)

  8. Ok! here are my guesses!
    1. the characters: Andi, and either Cory, Micah, or Gideon?
    2. the setting: I'm guessing their at Puget Sound, Tacoma Washington.
    3. the story problem: The her friend, (one of the three?) falls in, and Andi is forced to save him, even if it means to get into the water. (though water terrifies her)
    4. how it ends: She saves his life, and conquers her fear of water.

    This is fun! :D

    3. Okay, as soon as Missie sends me the next illustration, I will put it up and you all can guess for the next upcoming story (also not a blog story, but a story for the Tales from the Circle C Ranch).

    4. Nice job Megs!
      @Mrs. M: Who are they? Megs gave a couple ideas for that one, and it had me stumped. :)

    5. They are Andi and Gideon, and I shall say no more. :-)
