Write a submission based on the above prompt. You are to write a fiction or non-fiction piece using dialogue only to move the story along. There is no minimum word count, so if you like flash, use it. You may not use narration, description, or sentence tags. Be creative. You may write about nearly any subject.

You may say something descriptive, as long as it sounds like natural speaking, i.e.: " I love that red dress on you, it brings out the blue in your eyes." or "Let's go in the kitchen and have a cup of coffee." or something similar. No, he said, she exclaimed, or Sarah wore her red dress. "I love that red dress on you," Nathan exclaimed, etc.

Voters are asked to vote only for those stories that are written completely in dialogue.

No authors notes allowed, except for rules of the prompt or thanking an artist for a picture used to enhance your piece.
