A little history to this one. I forgot about it till 10:30 the night before it was due to be posted. As I sat there and contemplated the prompt, my husband comes and sits next to me on the couch. I mention my task and he says, "there are bones in it." Then BAM! it comes out. Not my normal style of writing, but I really really want to meet this kid. I will have to consider writing more to this story.
Hope you enjoy.
You find a box in the attic that isn’t yours.
There are bones in it.
They aren’t mine. They aren’t even human.
Not animal either. It’s a strange cross of reptile and human.
Am I surprised? Not really.
I only see my mom during the full eclipse of the moon. That’s the only time the portal’s open.
I suppose it would be safe to assume they were hers. Not from her body. But in the fact they belong to her.
Yeah, she’s odd like that.
Now how do I explain to Dad that I took those bones, put them back together.
Having a new pet will be fun.
Now go see what the others have written.
