“What the….” Jason asked as he pulled the car over to the side of the road. The front lawn of his house was covered with limbs and debris. “Did a tree explode?”
“You have exploding trees in your neighborhood?”
“I wish our neighborhood had exploding trees.”
Jason looked over at her. “Really?”
She looked at him seriously. “They would protect us from the Maurding Marchmonsters.”
His eyebrows raised. “What do they have to do with all that… stuff on my yard?
Her look said it all. “Protection, remember.”
“From the Marauding Marshmellows?”
“Oh, so no marshmellows?”
“No!” She crossed her arms and looked out her window.
He smiled. “Do you think we can in past the exploding tree?”
After a moment, she nodded firmly and he parked the car across the street, stepping out and around to lift her out of the car.
She slid her arms around his neck. “You won’t let the Maurding Marchmonsters get me?”
He kissed the top of her head. “Of course not, baby,” he said softly, closing the car door with his hip.
Half way across the street, she was asleep.
