>A Red Plastic Rake

>Many of you seemed to like my Thursday photo, and when I posted it, I thought there must be a story in it.
There was. Exactly 100 words which is called a ´drabble´.

The little girl was paddling in the small pool in the park, playing with her toy rake. She had her new wellies on. She trampled in the shallow water and spirited her footprints away with the rake.

”Do you like playing in the water?”

She nodded cautiously. She couldn´t see him, just hear the voice from the shadows.

”I have a much larger pool at home.” He left the bushes and squatted near her. When he smiled, he looked like a wrinkled apple, and her mother laughed and waved at them.

She dropped her red rake somewhere in the shrubbery.
