It’s Valentiny time again! I almost didn’t enter Susanna Hill’s contest because I’m tired, I’m busy, & I have a lot of projects on the go. The usual! But then I got a little carried away making Valentines for my family – I made 5 & there’s only 4 of us! So here’s a quick little 87 word Valentiny & Valentine just for you.
(The rules: Valentine’s story for kids where someone is confused – max of 214 words. You have until Feb 14th to enter. Lots of great prizes too!)
“Brains… Brains…” The zombie smiled at Zack. Then it moaned again. “Brains… Brains…”
“Eeek!” Zack hid behind a tree.
The zombie shuffled closer. “Brains… Brains…”
Zack darted under the slide. The zombie stumbled after him. “Brains… Brains…”
Zack dashed under the picnic table. The zombie followed. “Brains… Brains…” It stretched one arm down towards Zack, a heart-shaped box in its hand.
“Brains… Brains… I love you for your brains,” it said. “I mean, will you be my valentine?”
“Oh!” Zack laughed. “That’d be nice Zonya.”
