Four emojis: A peach, a gorilla, an ocean wave, and a lightning bolt

This here is a little silly.

The writing exercise I set myself went like this: Choose a random string of emojis, only four or five, and then write a story based on what you have.

They don''t make much sense, but then some readers would say that about most of my work. Who knows, maybe these make more sense than normal.

You decide.
