Guess the Story . . . #2

copyright 2014 Melissa McConnell
Another fun illustration for another never-before-published story that is going into my short-story collection.

So what do you think? Check out the horse with the braided and "ribboned" mane (and tail, but that can't be seen), Andi's fancy middy blouse, and . . . Who is that fellow looking at what just happened to his horse? Are you ready to guess what this story might be about?

 Good luck and have fun!

  3. characters: Chad & Andi, Justin & Andi, Mitch & Andi?

    Story Problem: Andi had WAY too much fun decorating someone's horse! :P

  4. CHARACTERS: I'm thinking that it's Mitch and Andi - (or Chad)
    SETTING: The 4th of July! :)
    STORY PROBLEM: Andi decides that her brother's horse needs spruced up for the rodeo. But once she sees the look on his face...
    SOLUTION: Either he makes her take the ribbons out, or maybe he actually lets her keep them in, even though it looks funny. and maybe his wins the prize for best dressed horse and rider? ;)

    1. Megs, you are the closest. The setting IS the 4th of July, and Chase needs sprucing up for the 4th of July race. I dare not say more or I will give away the entire story! It's one of my favorites.

      Good guessing!

    3. Thanks TJ! ;) Gee, I never knew I could guess that well! :O
      It sure is fun! :D

    4. Does Andi try to enter herself or Mitch into the race secretly, and get caught?

    5. Now, now, Jordan, that would be telling WAY too much! :-)

    6. Can we answer again, or only once?

    7. Sure! Answer as many times as you want. It's all in fun. :-)

  5. CHARACTERS: Andi and Chad?
    SETTING: Andi's birthday?
    STORY PROBLEM: Andi gets many unwanted ribbons for her birthday from Aunt Rebecca, and, not wanting to waste them, she decorates Chad's horse?
    SOLUTION: Chad catches Andi red-handed, and she is told to repent to her Aunt, who tries to act strict but ends up laughing!
    That's my farfetched guess!

    1. Cute idea! :D I want to read the story when you write it. ;)

    2. Maybe I could post it on my blog if I decide to write it.( if it's okay with Mrs.M)
      . I unfortunately can't give Mrs.M my email right now to send the story when I do write it. :-(

    3. Of course, Jordan! You may write a story about the picture and put it on your blog. I can ask Missie (Calamity Rene's sister) for permission to post the illustration too, if you like. As long as you give her credit, she probably wouldn't have a problem with it. If you do write a story, POST the link in a comment and I'll post it on a POST for everybody to come over and read! :-)

    4. Yay! Thank you! That will be great. I will post it as soon as I finish my part by part series on roping.

  6. CHARACTERS: Andi and One of her brothers probably Chad:-)
    SETTING: Probably the Carters barn or somewhere around there.
    STORY PROBLEM: They might have someone over so Andi had to dress up. So she went out into the barn and braided the horses main?
    This is fun!!!!!:-)

  7. Wops I forgot the solution: P
    SOLUTION: her brother gets mad at first but then when he sees that Andi was just trying to be nice he sees the Hummer In it and they both have a a good laugh!
    :-):-):-):-)

  8. Hmmm
    Characters: Andi and Chad
    Setting: Barn or outside the Barn
    Story Problem: Andi decides to braid a horse's mane and tail and gets carried away and then Chad catches her and isn't thrilled...
    Solution: Chad ends up not being mad, thinks Andi did a good job on the mane and tail and they "live happily ever after" ;-)

  9. Everyone's guesses are so fun! Megs is the closest! :-)

  10. As the sister of the illustrator it would be cheating if I guessed... darn it. ;) This is one of my favorite pictures Missie has done so far, thanks for putting it up. :)

  11. Okay, my new answer:
    Characters: Andi and Mitch
    Setting: the Carter barn on the Fourth of July
    Plot: Andi decides to secretly enter Mitch or herself into the race, then decorates Chase for it.
    Solution: Andi gets caught, but she/Mitch gets to race anyways. (ribbons included)

  12. Mrs.M, are you going to tell us the correct answer, or do we have to wait until someone guesses it?
