Umber (49.45 — Oleander’s Story)

September 21, 2012 § 1 Comment

“Ollie Belle, honey, are you alright?  What happened?  We could hear the priest yelling clear across the church.  Oh, honey, what did you say to him?”

Before I could answer she said, “Never mind, honey, we’re going home right now.  I’ll make you some nice hot chicken soup with noodles, and maybe some apricot tarts.”

She wrapped her coat around me and carried me all the way home.

    OMG – Such a twist in this child’s life. (Hoping there is a sketch somewhere of Oleander and the paper dolls). If you’re writing all this from France your muse must have tagged along…or at least her paper doll image tucked inside your carry-on. Love this tale, m’dear.
