The long grass parted, a rustling of the long stems caused birds to take flight and perch atop a near tree. Once quiet, slowly coming over the cover of the grass came two pointy ears and a grey face. A twitch of the nose gave the all clear and out bounded the rabbit, moving gracefully with that familiar gait, this way and that, quick as a flash he was gone through the nearest hedge. Alice, pondered ‘what was THAT rabbit late for’. With little time to think she turned and ran eager to tell the farmer that there was a rustling in the bushes at the end of the field.
As she neared him, the farmer looked up and broke into a grin, “Alice! Good to see you today!”
“So glad to see you as well,” she hollered back.”There was a rustling in the bushes at the end of the field and I ran to tell you because you said the rabbits are taking over so I thought you might give me your slingshot! I could take a few out…” Breathless, smiling her exuberance, she rushed to stop at his truck. “So, where’s the slingshot! I’ll go get ‘em!”
Chuckling, he turned and whistled; then she saw the hound approaching, rabbit dangling. She sat down heavily, her pluck entirely gone.
