(Continuing with the note that I am still in the job hunt, so work on the blog will be light until I start my new position. Enjoy today’s Fictioneers.)

“You should get outside to take care of the horses.”
Sally stretched as she turned over in the bed.
“Wild horses could not drag me away from you, honey.”
Eric looked into her eyes and just shook his head.
“I don’t need to be out of bed for 2 more hours. You need to get those domestic horses to the barn before the snow swallows them up.”
Sally cuddled in closer
“Domesticated horses will not drag me away from you. I nearly lost you last year in winter. I am taking all I can get now.”
“Can’t argue with that.”
Neat little tale
Cute… but I feel sad for the horses being swallowed by snow.
Makes me wonder what happened last winter….
‘Wild horses’ wont drag me away, sometimes I feel similar about taking the dog out.🙂
I echo those thoughts re taking the dogs for a walk.
You really brought this discussion to life, although I did feel sorry for the horses as well. That said, I have kids and there are times you do just let them wait, though not out in the snow.
Snuggly little tale.
I wonder why he can be so lazy and doesn’t even offer to help. Maybe he’s still sick…
Looks like I need to change the placement of the breaks. Sally’s the one who doesn’t want to get out of bed. Her husband just got back from deployment. 🙂
Oh no, don’t change anything. I’m a non native speaker/reader, I just didn’t get it right.
Makes you wonder what happened last winter. I like the wild/domesticated word play
