Drabble Challenge #112

Prompt: hope

There once was a girl named Hope. Her parents gave her a pogo stick. She loved it. She bounced around the neighborhood, pigtails flopping behind her.

One day, the spring broke. Her father got a replacement, but it broke after a few days. He replaced it, but it also came apart.

He looked around until he could find the strongest, most sturdy spring available. He finally found one from a company called B. L. ZeBub Toys. He fitted it on Hope's pogo stick, and she bounced again. She bounced so high, she never came back down.

Truly, Hope springs eternal.
