Puppy Love

“He’s coming! He’s coming!”

Jed runs to the door. “Come quick before he leaves!”

Jed runs to the window. “I see him! I see his hat!”

“Wait. Where is he going? Oh, that is not him.”

Sigh.

“Wait! There he is! He’s coming!”

Jed runs to the door. “Come quick before he leaves!”

Jed runs to the window. “There he is! I see him! Hurry!”

Jed jumps. “Hurry!”

Marie comes from the kitchen and pats Jed’s head. “It’s okay. Here you go.”

Jed bolts out the door and down the walk.

“Where is he? Where did he go?”

Jed jumps as Marie opens the shiny box. She pulls out a red wrapped box and undoes the bow.

“It looks like it is for you.”

Jed sniffs the box, then paws at the box.

“What is it? What is in the box?”

He claws at the box and rips open the wrapping.

“A bone! But from who?”

Marie laughs. “You got a Valentine bone from the cute collie you met in the park.”

Jed pauses his chewing on the bone. From a girl?

Oh well. A bone is a bone.

I am a school teacher and an author. I like to write picture books, middle grade, science fiction and short stories. I live in Alaska and I love history, so those two things often influence my creative writing.
