Scene: After the concert, Lucie Bellerose and Rabbit climbed into Big Rabbit’s van.
Big Rabbit’s old van wasn’t exactly a comfort ride, but I settled in next to Rabbit on a bench wedged into the back. As my head rested against his shoulder, my eyes slid closed.
“Tired?” Rabbit whispered against my forehead.
“What do you think?” I mumbled. “But I had such a good time.”
“I need to talk to Templeton,” I told him as I yawned. “I need to know more about the spell he placed on the Stone. I should’ve asked months ago.”
He was quiet for a moment. I heard the tiny breath puff out of his mouth. “Okay. I’ll text him.”
“What is it?”
“I need to go home.”
“We are,” he chuckled. “You are out of it.”
I sat up, turning sidewise on the bench and facing him. “I mean, I need to go home. It’s time for me to return to Matar.”
“No,” Rabbit replied. “End of discussion.”
I knew it wasn’t going to be easy, but I hoped to convince him to support me. I reached over and threaded my fingers through his. “It’s time for me to go home. It’s time for me to get on with my life.”
Rabbit stared at our hands. “I don’t want you to go.”
“You know I need to face whatever is coming at me next.” I gave his hand a squeeze. “Today, running into Elaine Waverton out of nowhere…It reminded me that this life in Vue is not forever…”
🎶 This writing challenge runs from May 15 – 28! Stay tuned as tomorrow the next prompt is: Makes you cringe. (That post is now available – click here!)
