100 Word Challenge for Grown Ups #40


This week's challenge here, celebrates our 40th week. 
Our challenge is to write to the prompt - Ruby.


Cute as a button!

"Rubeeee, Rubeeee, where are you?"  
A tiny giggle emanated from the living room.
"Ruby, Ruby, where are you?"
A rustle of cotton against carpet.
"I'm coming to get you..."
A gentle plop is heard close to the French doors.
“Where’s my girl then...”
A gentle sucking noise adds a clue.

I lean over the back of the sofa.
“Boo...”
“Ganny found me”
Said around a tiny thumb.
“Come on out my darling”
A gorgeous morsel crawls out from behind the sofa, stands,
holds my hand.
“Lolly, Ganny?”
“Yes, sweetheart, you may have a lolly.”
My Ruby, more precious than diamonds.


Neither of my granddaughters are called Ruby, but I love them just as much.
