“Easter is around the corner and I have plans in store for Eva. See these bad boys here …”, Damien said, taking out the rabbit ears from his plastic shopping bag.

“You bought your girlfriend a pair of bunny ears? Was there no Easter eggs you could find?”, I asked.

“Antony, jeez you can be naive. There is less fun to be had with an Easter egg than a pair of bunny ears …”, he said, with a wink.

“In the words of Rose from Titantic, I’ll be wearing only this when she comes home come Easter.”, he added.

“Oh … is this a gift for her or for you?”, I laughed.

“Bit of both.”, he smiled.

“Maybe you should buy some ‘ole bunny rabbit ears, give Kris an Easter thrill he’ll never forget.”

“Me and the hubby are well past that.”, I groaned.

“Oh there’s no such thing as past sex mate. And I bet even your uptight lawyer wouldn’t say no.”

“He’s not uptight.”

“Yes, he is. And you find it sexy as hell in him.”, he grinned.

I smiled.

“Where did you get the bunny ears?”

Maria sat down to type the next part of her book. For a few moments she looked at the blank computer screen deep in thought, characters having conversations in her head. Then she began to type. Her fingers flew along the keys as her heart kept telling her head what to say. Writing wasn’t just her job. It was a joy, a passion. It never felt like a chore. Before she knew it, her third chapter was in the bag barring that demon editing. Spellcheck, Grammarly and the gang. Her fingers wouldn’t fly when it came to those enemies!

Friday Fictioneers Writing Prompt – The Garden Chairs

The Garden Chairs

 

The first Saturday of May the family sat on their garden chairs. Mum, Dad, two daughters and two sons. Laughter rained around the table as tins of alcohol were consumed and sandwiches made by Dad.

The third Saturday in June, the mood was different where the garden chairs were. All six were empty. Five members of the family sat in the kitchen dressed in black wondering why they didn’t see the signs. The eldest son had died of a drug overdose, had been on them for years. Everyone had no idea.

The garden chairs would never be sat in again.
