Tuesday Tales - Cheese
Updated: May 30
Hi Everyone! Welcome back to Tuesday Tales! This week’s word prompt is “cheese”. We’re back with the Hallow Brothers in Decision.
They were fighting for their lives. His family had to rebuild their homes. It didn’t stop Joshua from beaming like the sun.
Maya must have noticed because she chuckled at him as she waved towards the cabin. “Go put the kids to bed, you big cheese.”
“Yes, Ma’am.” He scanned the clearing for Prism, the oldest and Maya’s half sister. He cocked his head towards the building. “You coming?”
Prism jammed her hands in what there was of the pockets of her tiny jeans shorts then shot a look at Maya. The half pixie/half demon was going to fit in well with the Hallows. She had the same annoying trait.
The two siblings seemed to have a wordless conversation between them. Finally, Prism spoke. “I’m going to help Maya.”
“She doesn’t know much,” Maya continued. “She was forbidden to learn this stuff. Now is a good time for her to know how to do it.”
Joshua nodded. “Try to get some rest.”
Maya crossed the grass to him. She pressed her lips against his. “Good night, sweetheart.”
He laughed. “You’re under the mistaken impression that I’m going to sleep. I am sure the inside is trashed. And I’ve been gone long enough that an interrogation is in order.” He returned her kiss. “I love you.”
“I love you, too.”
He stood in place and watched as Maya and Prism disappeared into the woods. A small foot kicked against his leg brought him back to the world around him.
“Papa,” Sophie reminded.
“Yep, I know. Let’s go see what trouble your brothers and sister have gotten into.” He strode across the camp to his camp. He carefully took the porch steps two at a time then before walking through the front door.
