Thanks to Tessa's prompt at Magpie Tales, I thought I'd have a go today.
But I only need one. Please?
Look, it doesn’t work like that.
Like you just clamber up a tree and say “I only need one’.
But you did say when we met last time; if there was anything you could do, just ask. I’m asking. I really need your help.
True, I did. But golden eggs need a bit more preparation than that.
I’m sorry; it was very presumptuous of me.
Yes, it was, ordinary white eggs I can produce without too much effort, blue ones with one day’s notice but gold ones … well we’re talking three days, at least!
It’s just that …
It’s just that for once I wanted to take something special to the autumnal gathering of the community.
And you shall.
You are special. You have the power to captivate and mesmerise with your beautiful voice. Take the song from your heart; weave the words with magic and sing farewell to the long lazy days of summer.
