It's a hot summer's day, and 12-year-old Peanut and her cousins are being driven into town on the back of a trailer drawn by Uncle Toby in his tractor. It's Peanut's "mean time" age, and she's about to do something she'll regret.

This read like the introduction to a book. Felt like it was only 2-3 very short paragraphs - I wouldn't even classify it as a short story because it really felt like it was just starting to tell a story.
Pleasant but forgettable
Not really a short story in my opinion - more like an opening to a book. I expected more even in only 17 minutes.
