Six Sentence Sunday #9
Last week Tori had just arrived home. Otis met her at the ferry in his taxi cab. As Tori was driving the taxi up Main Street, Mayor Carver jumped out in front of her wearing a miner’s hat.
Tori rolled down the window and heard chirping before she uttered a word.
“New peeps.” Otis said.
Not exactly certain why hearing those words out of Otis’s mouth felt uncomfortable, Tori giggled. “I don’t see any people Otis.” He really did need to wear his glasses.
“Not people, Satori. George and Gracie hatched a clutch of peeps just last week.”
A little line of fuzzy yellow balls stretched across the road following behind one of the wild chickens that called Starlight Cove home. Gracie’s copper feathers glowed in Janine’s headlights as she led her kids across the road. Other towns had stray alley cats, this place had stray chickens and the occasional stray egg.
