Granny Fortuna starts awake from a drunken.. I mean deep sleep !
"What.. what was that? whose there?... " she asks her voice quite small and gruff from her flu
It's quite dim in the bedroom and Granny's eyes not being what they once were, cannot see clearly.
" I said " cough cough " I said whose there? " she demands her voice a little louder
It is I! the ghost of Christmas past , present and future!" says a growl y voice
" You! " scoffs granny " The ghost of Christmas Past, Present and future! You cannot be all three! Where are the other two? " she demands on a cough!
"Have you not heard about the cutbacks! They cannot afford to employ three ghosts ! where one will do !"
Granny points at the ghost " Your the wolf who red riding hood killed! Imposer!" remembering the start of that tale Granny looks a little worried " And don't think you'll be eating me! I've crushed bigger things than you with my shoe!" cough cough.. sneeze!
" Okay Okay! Don't go on about it! Yes in my former life I was indeed the wolf that the evil nasty wicked sinful ........"
"Get on with it!" demands Granny stopping the wolf in mid flow
Taking a deep breath counting to ten and muttering .. don't be bitter don't be bitter , the ghost wolf finally continues " yes I am said Wolf , you may call me Bert ( Granny giggles, the wolf gives her s stern look ) I am here to show you what the present and the future holds "
" What about the past? " asks Granny
The wolf sighs LOUDLY... " was you not listening? or are your ears just too old? ( this time it's granny who gives the wolf a stern look , he gulps, that granny looks one mean old woman! ) I was saying about the cut backs? so you know what happened in the past! you've been there and done that, so we will concern ourselves with the present and the future!" he says importantly
Starting to blink and yawn Granny points to the window " Well that's all very interes..ting but I have the flu... and need to .. ( yawn ) .. get my rest.. ( yawn)... so maybe tomorrow... come.b.. " she starts to snore gently
No matter how loudly Bert the wolf calls and shouts, Granny carries on sleeping, finally he gives up in disgust and leaves muttering all the way....
to be continued.....................
Oooh! Scary stuff... Bertie is hiding behind the sofa and Luke is under the chair.ReplyDelete
Is this ghost wolf fully reformed? Or might we see Granny F chewed and left in a little heap of wood chips with a shawl on top?
Jen, the thought of Granny being chewed is a little sick....:)Delete
Well... what do you expect, Queenie?Delete
My brother is a vicar now but he was once a doll (and little sister) beating-chewing-limb removing-homework ripping up thug. I've seen it all and am scarred for life. I expect violence round dolls, hence my fascination with Lucas before Dee civilized him.......WWhat happened? Your Sashas are now loving, caring and interested in nice cars and pottery! Pretty tame by your historic standards!
In truth there is not much that would scare Granny! Even if that wolf was full sized, she'd give him what for! :)Delete
We await with bated breath!ReplyDelete
:) just don't hold it, I'm still fighting this virus!Delete
In a match up between Granny and a ghost wolf, I'll put my money on Granny any day!ReplyDelete
Hmmm - think you are right there Steve. She is what my own granny used to call, 'a right tartar,' if she hasn't had a drop of beer or a nip of gin to mellow her mood. That ghost could end up in a tight, WWF style choke hold.Delete
I'd have to agree with you both :) there not much , if anything she'd not tackle head on! :)Delete
Yeah me too Steve!!Delete
DARE??? I ask 'Where have all the Sasha Dolls gone' from your SASHA Village posts?ReplyDelete
Hoping that they will be returning very soon as, as you know, I'm a PURE Sashafanatic!
You may ask.. the Sasha's are around and will appear when needed, this is indeed the Sasha village but like everywhere in the world , it's become MultiDOLLtural ( a new word invented by me ! ) and when I am creating I use which ever doll I see or links in,or I've already placed for something else but then I see them, the idea forms and the photos with story appear... it's now we creative people work.. no copying... :)Delete
Loved YOUR reply here! Just had to ASK and was waiting to see how you would reply!Delete
'Multidolltural'...Great new word and NO, you know that I could NEVER copy, (NOT have I ever done or plan to do in the future) as only Sasha Dolls live here!
Kendal that was meant as I don't COPY! Not you!! If a Sasha or Gregor had been standing about they'd have been in the shop by now but Lucas is waiting in the wings to play a very special part..... just waiting for my temperature to drop! :)Delete
Ooooooh I was a little fearful for poor Granny but now I'm thinking the wolf would definitely come off worse if he started a fight with her....even if she was a little tipsy with her flu 'medication' ;)ReplyDelete
I look forward to seeing what happens next!
Big hugs xxx hope you, Dee, get rid of this flu bug too, and real soon!!
I'm not sure if granny would be pleased to know we all think she's more scary that a wolf! lolDelete
Me too! I've no idea whats going on!
Thanks cannot believe it's still lurking about ! x
I hope you are 100% now Dee. What a nasty flu bug! My money is with Granny. Wolves, beware! 😊 xxxReplyDelete
Getting there Ginger. This virus set off something I suffer from ,so for a while to was nasty but on the mend thank goodness. If Granny's tale does not get finished soon it won't be just the wolves who'll need to beware but me too!Delete
