Colouring In


Lucy sat at the table in Mrs. Trubshaw’s classroom, furiously colouring a picture using the new wax crayons supplied by the Laverstone Arms Bowling Team (as it said in reception). Mrs. Trubshaw squatted next to the little dark-haired girl. “There’ll be no playtime left if you don’t go out soon, Lucy,” she said. “Will you not leave your picture until tomorrow?”

Lucy shook her head, concentrating on colouring in the trees.

Mrs. Trubshaw frowned. “What’s your drawing, of, dear? A picnic?”

Lucy shook her head again. “Goblin Reaver,” she said. “He thinks I can’t see him watching, but I can.”

How old is she here? She hasn't yet learned not to talk about the things she can see that others can't. Careful, Little Lucy.

She's about five and has an "overactive imagination"

Do the teachers really believe in Lucy's "overactive imagination"? :)

Leatherdykeuk said...

They believe in her imagination, yes, but not in goblins.

Ah, this is nicely done. I like that it's almost a reverse of the typical childhood boogey tale of someone spooky watching that no one else can see but the child.

Thank you!

Who'd be a teacher?

Excuse Me - I am- a teacher that is. I believe in goblins and Jasfoup and elves and...
