#atozchallenge, Z is for Zoo…
“El, it’s Jason. Call me, please. Something came up.” Ellie thought of the good-looking firefighter she’d met at Gran’s. He was surprisingly charming and fun and they were going to dinner.
When Ellie called back, Jason explained he was babysitting his 4-year-old nephew, Zak, for the weekend as Zak’s mom had premature labor pains.
“Sorry, El, I hate to cancel, but they’re dropping him off soon. Want to visit the zoo with us tomorrow?” He sounded hopeful.
Zak was all innocence, holding Ellie’s hand as they walked. “Are you gonna marry Uncle Jason and have a baby like my mom?”
My theme this year was 100 word fiction. So, no, don’t count this line. This is a continuation of Ellie and Jason’s story from E is for Easter which you can find here. And thanks for reading all my little stories this year!
