SS: The Book (#octoprompt Pumpkin)

Pumpkin…. books… bookstore… I might leave and go sit in the bookstore soon.

I’ve been busy. I missed Heart. You may get a late story or poem. No idea yet. [#Octoprompt]


The Book

Mom said a pumpkin spice latte with skim milk.

I got this. Pumpkin spice latte with skim milk.

I nod holding her fancy credit card in one hand. If I get her the pumpkin spice latte with skim milk, she’ll let me get the new werewolf book. Then I’ll have the entire set.

It will be great! I can’t wait.

I rush into the bookstore and find the book. Werewolf Natalie and the Missing Tooth.

I pick it up and twirl. The book! It’s here. I can get it.

I nod and walk the book up the cashier. It’s super easy. They know me here. Mom takes me often. I’m trusted.

“Is that all?” The smile has me grinning back.

“Yes!” I am quick to buy the book and walk back outside.

When I see Mom sitting in the car still, I race to her side. “Mom! It’s in!”

“My latte?” She looks at me and the book in my hands. She sighs. “Pumpkin spice latte with skim milk. Leave the book. You can read it after you get me my drink.”

I duck my head. “Sorry, Mom.” I turn back inside repeating the order to myself.
