This is Trish’s contribution to my challenge!
My contribution to #simply-6-minutes for this week, Tuesday 1 September 2020.
Lizard, by Stine Writing
This is randomly different!
The sound of this beast is familiar, even comforting.
The feel of the beast, the deep rumble is also a constant.
But something has changed!
Normally I travel in the plastic box, with the lid of holes.
Down deep in the darkness of Simon’s schoolbag.
I see light only in three places; between house and car, car to classroom – and in the canteen where Simon takes me out to play with his friends.
They call me Joe.
The name I call myself is Trevor!
But, I’ll answer to Joe in the small ways that I can.
I don’t run away and tolerate them handling me and nibble on the scraps they drop into my box.
The children are delighted.
I am tolerant, but bored.
BUT this new adventure is excellent!
