Welcome

Writing Prompt - Piggy Bank

Writing Prompt-Visual Piggy Bank
Una Tiers
The quarter fell in alone. It was dark. She expected pennies, dimes and hoped for folding money. She moved over to lay on the rubber plug.
But for days she sat alone. Waiting. The bank was moved around and was nearly dropped twice.
Several pennies joined her but they had little to say.
But then bliss the quarter was joined by Susan B. Anthony.
