Pappa would be watching.


He didn’t like it when she wandered too far and she knew this because she tried a few times. Not fair of course. She knew about everything in the neighborhood. Nothing scary ever happened. People were pretty nice. Ams just had a little bit of trouble with that dog down the road, but only because the lady didn’t like Ams very much. The dog liked her though, and that was what was important!

How was she supposed to know that the mean lady didn’t want puffypuddlespopperbottom to eat yummy treats?! Just a little candy, some sugar glass and chocolate and part of her pudding and more of the sugar glass and more chocolate of course.

He liked all of it! Amaryllis had made a friend, and she was very happy with herself. But then the lady came home and she yelled and got red in the face and seemed to be falling out of her blouse to tear the cute dog away. Maybe, just maybe that lady should consider wearing better fitting clothes...

None of it mattered though, because pappa got an earful and then Ams got an earful, and quicker than slobber flies from a shaking dog, Amaryllis had to pay a price. No adventures. No sweets. No visiting friends. And NO petting puffypuddlespopperbottom.

None of this would have happened if her momma was around. Though she didn’t actually know this as fact, she believed it to be true. Good enough really.

Unfortunately no amount of knowing or wishing would change the next endless forever time of being banished to a room that she hadn’t even gotten used to since the move. Eight years old, and her life was over.

Godric Park.

Overhead, the sky was a crisp blue, for once clear of the ever-pervasive spongy clouds and rain. The sun was a lemony-yellow presence, high in the Eastern sky, and in front of it zipped three broomsticks in a straight line, or something very like one. One... two..... three... the boys passed, their shouts of excitement echoing as they chased the snitch, a tiny shimmer reflecting the sunlight.

Far below was another, much smaller broomstick.

It trugged along the ground, hugging close to it like a sluggish choo choo train and occasionally shuttering in protest. This was because said stick was currently being occupied by a very small girl who was tugging upward on the front of it with all her might, trying to coax it into doing what it had been expressly designed NOT to do.

"John, I said wait up!" The tiny girl squealed, giving the broomstick another tug.

Begrudgingly, it drifted upward a foot, and then sank, depositing the troublesome girl safely on the ground. Janey Hurst was not pleased. In a huff, she hopped off the toy safety broom, grabbing it firmly and thrusting it handle first into the turf.

Her brother was such a beast. He NEVER let her play! She folded her arms, seething blue eyes fixing on another figure nearby.  "You!" She barked, much more sharply than she meant to.

"...Do you want to play?"

Roleplay Response:
Pappa finally let her go to the park! Sadly, he insisted on coming with. Adventures just weren’t the same when pappa was watching, but at least she could enjoy the grass again. Maybe she would find something fun to do, but it wasn’t going to be great.

Ams flopped onto the ground, exasperated. Nothing to do. Until there was...

She’d closed her eyes only moments before someone demanded her attention.

“Maybe!” she exclaimed almost as obnoxiously as the girl had sounded.

“What are you playing?” Ams then asked, attempting to hide her excitement.

How did you find us? It was so long ago! A web search of sorts, I am sure - no idea if it was Google though ;)
