It's Day 8 of Blogging from A to Z April 2015 Challenge
Little Henrietta was so sweeeeet! Big blue eyes, chubby pink cheeks and a teeny weeny button nose. She also had a very special talent. She didn't know it was special; it was just something she did.
If she wiggled her nose at a bud, it would turn into a beautiful flower. If she frowned at an ugly slug it would slither off as fast as its slime could carry it. If she smiled at a spider, it would sit down beside her.
One summer’s day Mummy and Daddy held a barbecue. Daddy was cooking sausages and things on a fire in a big tin box, and there were lots of grownups there talking and laughing and being silly.
Henrietta was crawling around amusing herself. No one noticed as she winked at a bumble bee and it looped the loop. Or when she wiggled her tongue at a worm and it stood on its tail!
It started getting darker and suddenly there was a flash and a scary rumbling noise. Daddy looked up at the stormy sky and frowned.
Uncle Gilbert shook the pepper pot over his plate of food. Some of it missed and landed on Henrietta's nose! She sneezed the biggest little sneeze she’d ever sneezed! Suddenly the black clouds scattered in lots of different directions and the sun beamed down from a bright blue sky.
Henrietta squinted at the sun and grinned. The sun smiled at Henrietta and winked!
Tomorrow I'll be posting a gentle 100 word vignette entitled The Island
