The prompt over at Velvet Verbosity this week is -‘Tale’
Monsters In The Garden
“Jimmy! Come away from that window, your teas going cold. How many times do I need to tell you, there’s nobody out there. All this talk of monsters is just a tale made up by your friends to frighten you. Now eat your tea!”
As Jimmy moved away from the window the man, half-hidden in the shadows by the garden shed, moved out from his hiding place. The kid had spooked him. He hadn’t known she’d a child. What if he’d seen him? Best if he deals with the boy first. Then he can give the mother his full attention.
