Missed the Concert and Needing a New Tire

By Tessa Dean January 2021

Sarah was taking her twin teenage sons, Aiden and Ethan, to a concert at the high school. The boys were fighting in the back seat. Sarah turned to yell at them.

“Stop it, you two, or we’re going home.”

There was a loud thump, and the car careened across the road to the median strip.

Sarah told the boys to stay in the car as there was a lot of traffic. She got out and looked at the tire. There was no way Sarah could save that one, and she had no spare tire. She would need a new tire.

Neatness is not My Forte

by Tessa Dean January 2021

“Terri where’s the electric bill?” Andy shouted from the other room.

Oh no he’s at my desk, I ran, yelling, “In the pile of bills to be paid, where else would it be?”

“And which of these mountainous piles would that be?” I had to stop him.

“Give me a second, I know exactly where it is, just don’t mess with my piles. The last time you did I couldn’t find anything for a week.”

I picked up the electric bill and handed it to him. I don’t know what he needed it for, since I pay all the bills.

Take It or Leave It

by Tessa Dean

Standing on the curb, Roger and Marjorie looked the house over. It would need a lot of work to make it presentable. The rest of the property required an excellent gardener’s touch. Marjorie didn’t think it was worth the trouble. However, Roger was in love with the property. He started to list what needed to be done to fix up the property to resell it and came up with a rough estimate on the costs.

He turned to the real estate agent and started to haggle over the price. “The owners won’t come down anymore. Take it or leave it.”

Teddy

by Tessa Dean

Anita stooped to tie her shoe, knocking her bag over and spilling out the contents for everyone to see. She began to blush as the other kids started laughing. Tears seeped down her face, and a boy she didn’t know closed her bag and helped her up.

“What’s your name,” he asked.

Tearfully she replied,” Anita. Why aren’t you laughing at me like everyone else?”

He unzipped his bag and showed her the contents. He, too, had a small stuffed bear in his bag.

“What’s her name,” he asked.

“Sunshine.”

“Sunshine meet Rambo.” He shyly took her hand in his.

Puppy Woes

By Tessa Dean

“Jennifer, get inside the dining room and set the tables. It’s time to serve lunch,” her mother yelled from the back door.

“Oh, Ma, do I have to,” Jennifer asked whiningly. “There’s a puppy out here, and it is so cute. Can we keep it?”

“Listen, you know we can’t afford a dog. Get those tables set so we can start serving lunch.”

Jennifer snuck the puppy inside and started setting tables.

There’s a shriek from the kitchen, and then the puppy runs out with two steaks in its mouth, an angry cook behind it. “Now, you’ve done it, Jennifer!”

And She’s Off

By Tessa Dean October 2020

Marjorie’s blond curls bounced as she made her way to the pink boat moored at the marina. Today was a school holiday, and Marjorie and her mother had come to the bay to look around. It wasn’t long before Marjorie had slipped her small hand out of her mother’s and took off running towards the water.

“Marjorie, no!” her mother shouted while a pickpocket tried to grab her purse. She looked up, just in time to see her child sailing away on the pink boat. She threw her purse at the guy and ran, screaming at the boat to stop.
