Tuesday Tales - Rake
Updated: Jun 27
Hi Everyone! Welcome back to Tuesday Tales! This week’s word prompt is “simple”. We’re back with the Hallow Brothers in Decision.
Momma’s face lit up as a grin spread across her face. She called out. “Hold on, Adam. I’ll be there in just a second to help.”
Joshua scowled. “When did Littlefoot get here?”
“Shortly after you left to get the others. He’s going to help me babysit my grand babies. Now go.”
Joshua’s gaze shot back to the kitchen then back to her. It was killing him to let his new family go. But this was his mother and Littlefoot was sort of a father figure to the brothers when his father died. “I’ll be back when I’m done.”
“Get some sleep first. We’ll all see you in the morning.”
Joshua nodded then shuffled out the door to the chaos of cleaning up.
He made his way past the cabins into the forest to find Maya and Prism. He knew nothing about ancient symbols and had absolutely no magic other than the uncanny ability to chance into a horrifying beast one week of the month. He had no idea what help he could be.
A soft blue glow caught his eye. He spend up his pace towards it. Maya and Prism stood over it side by side.
“Maya,” he whispered as loud as he could.
She turned to him and stared a few moments before she smiled. “You don’t have to whisper. You aren’t disturbing anything.” She glanced around him. “Where are the other kids?”
“Mom insisted on babysitting. Littlefoot is helping her I guess. I think she has the whole brood.”
“And they were okay with this?”
“They have a Grandma with full spoiling ability. They were over the moon.”
He noticed Prism perk up beside Maya. “A grandma?”
Maya laughed then pointed back to camp. “Go. If Josh helps, I can do this myself.”
Joshua shook his head. “I have no idea what to do.”
He didn’t see the rake until Maya had it pressed against his chest. “Just clear the brush. These need to be at the base on the trees. Some are a little overgrown.”
He grinned back at her. “That I can do.” He looked at Prism then cocked his head back to the camp. “The larger cabin next to the big, long building. Grandma will love to see you.”
“Thanks.” Prism mush have used some of her pixie magic because she was off like a flash of rainbow colored lighting.
