“Hi,” the strange little creature said.
“Are you talking to me?” Peggy asked, sitting up in her bed, rubbing her eyes.
“Who else would I be talking to?”
“Who are you? What are you?”
“Who and what do you think I am?” the creature asked, smiling at Peggy.
“Am I dreaming?” Peggy asked.
“Are you dreaming?” the creature asked.
“Why do you answer my questions with the same questions?”
Ignoring the question, the creature asked, “Do you wanna have some fun?”
Peggy smiled. “Yes,” she said.
“Well then, let the wild rumpus start,” the creature said, jumping onto Peggy’s bed.
Written for this week’s 50 Word Thursday prompt from Teresa (aka The Hidden Wordsmith). The idea is to use the image above from Bellinon at Pixabay along with the line, “Let the wild rumpus start,” from Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak, and to write a post that must be between 50 and 250 words, in 50 word increments.
