Apples play a special part in many cultures, from Adam and Eve to Greek Mythology to the United State's own Johnny Appleseed. Incorporated into religion, popular culture, and even as the name of one of the largest companies in the world, apples dominate our fruity conscious. Now it's your turn. Write a Drabble that includes an apple in the storyline. You can draw from mythology, religion, or culture or create an entirely new apple storyline. But you must do it in exactly 100 words.

What is a Drabble? A Drabble is a story with a beginning, middle, and an end that is exactly 100 words long (excluding the title).

So go for it. Get your inspiration on and let's see what kind of apple stories you can come up with. And, you might win a $100 writing grant.
