Yay! It is time again for Susanna Leonard Hill´s Valentiny Contest.


 

A Valentine’s Surprise (214 words)

Corine Timmer


“Mommy’s home,” Alpha chuckled.

Fifi looked at Boris.

Boris looked at Fifi, then at Alpha.

For a rainy day she sure is cheerful, Boris thought.

Alpha opened her shopping bag.

She placed each item on the kitchen counter.

Boris and Fifi perked up their ears.

“Do you know what day it is today?” Alpha cooed.

Boris and Fifi wagged their tails.

“It’s Valentine’s Day,” Alpha cheered,

Patting both of them on the head.

“Mommy’s got a surprise for you!”

Alpha washed her hands and put on her apron.

Boris and Fifi followed her every move as she

Washed the peas and drained them.

Peeled the potatoes and cut them into cubes.

Washed the carrots and grated them, roughly.

Then, she dropped them all together

Into a pot of boiling water.

Boring!

Next, she chopped an onion.

Fifi looked at Boris, then at Alpha.

Alpha placed her special stewpot on the stove.

Woohoo!

Then, she opened a little bag.

It crunched between her fingers.

Fifi’s eyes popped out of their sockets.

Oh, that scent! Could it be...?

Woof woof! Boris barked.

Alpha fried the onions,

Mixed in the CHICKEN HEARTS,

Added the vegetables and stock.

Finally, she shouted, “Group hug!”

Boris and Fifi jumped up at her legs.

“Now, who’s hungry?” Alpha howled.

WOOF! AROO!
