Baby Baby Baby [MLM]

Woman annoyed

Yeah, I got your message in a bottle. And now you followed me all around New York City.

I was hoping to reconcile, sugar pie honey bunch. Baby, I need your loving. Honey, I miss you and I’m being good. Just give me one more chance. Oh babe, what would you say?

I think my silence speaks for itself. Now take your massive ego and walk away.

Don’t do me like that! Oh girl. Don’t be cruel. Baby, I’m a want you…

I hear your frustration. But you and I travel to the beat of a different drum. I told you not to get hooked on me.

Baby I love your way. Every day! Please let me call you sweetheart.

You don’t actually know my name, do you?

Home Sweet Home [flash 200]

Pumpkin house

Okay, so yeah, Peter bought this house for me a while back and at first I was all happy to putter around my own place, but now I think he did it just to bully me.

Why do you feel that way?

Well, sometimes I want to take a little jaunt to town by myself and he always says to wait for him. I never get to go anywhere alone.

And how does that make you feel?

Like a child really. I have to ask him for cash to spend because he made me quit my business of selling baskets of painted pine cones.

How do you envision the future?

I’m a bit scared honestly. Apparently, this is Peter’s pattern. I recently found out he bought his first wife a house on Pumpkin Place too… and then she mysteriously disappeared.

Are you afraid he intends to harm you?

I don’t know. The other day when we went to town, he bought a spelling book and said he intends to memorize every word.

Are you talking about reading or magic?

I’m not sure, but isn’t it a bit strange that yesterday you were a squirrel and today you’re a talking psychiatrist?

Inheritance [flash 354]

Crazy graffiti house

“I was so excited when they read the will!” Jessica said to her friend Sherry as they followed the GPS directions to the property. “I can’t wait to satisfy my curiosity about what it looks like.”

Sherry gazed out the window at people break dancing in front of a store. “Me too. Interesting locale.”

Jessica shrugged as she turned left. “Yeah, a bit funky, but isn’t it better to get real estate as an inheritance than a pile of money?”

“Sure is,” her friend agreed. “You’d just spend the money, but now you have something for the future, even if it’s a challenge to redecorate.”

“Decorating is my dream. I love to putter around with colors and fabrics. Just haven’t had the opportunity so far.” Jessica parked in front of a tiny house perched on a quarter of a lot. The women stared at it for a minute.

“Well,” Sherry said. “Small houses can be really cute when they’re all fixed up.”

The women exited the car and walked up to the turquoise door. Jessica had been given a key by her deceased great-aunt’s attorney. She opened the door and they stepped inside.

“Gosh, it’s certainly eccentric!” Sherry said. “But in a good way, I mean. I knew your aunt was an artist, but I didn’t realize she had graffiti all over her own walls. And look at this crazy furniture!”

Jessica nodded. “Yeah. Okay, it will take some getting used to, but I like it already. It’s unique!”

“Unique is a good word for it.” Sherry walked up the stairs and pointed to a large teak cabinet with intricate scrollwork. “What’s this weird thing? There’s a note with your name on it.”

Jessica plucked the note off of the cabinet and unfolded it. “Dearest Jess, please take loving care of all the special things in my house, especially the plants in the kitchen. They’re my babies. Make this home your own, but never open this cabinet. Ever! Love, Auntie Arabella.”

The women read the message again, looked at each other, and then stared at the cabinet. It was silly not to open it, right?
