My second Drabble! It has a big tree. . . Yup.

Okay. I'm going to do this one on trees. I miss seeing the green trees so much right now. . .  I'm not sure if it's a very good drabble, as it seems like the beginning of a story, but I think you can do drabbles like that. I don't know though, but anyways, here it is:

I sat beneath the biggest tree I've ever seen, breathing hard. It's shade was cooling and refreshing, a nice relief from the scorching sun. An ugly brown bird hopped down to where I sat, “Morning!” He said, “You really shouldn't be here, move on.” I watched him fly away. What is wrong? Did I do something? All I had done was sit down. I have walked all day, besides it's stuffy and hot, I deserve a rest. I felt something rough wrap around me, and the world became cool and dark.

Final word count: 91

Character Mondays: Jesi (and Rea)

Sadly, life has taken a tole on things, and I haven't gotten around to this for three weeks. I'm super super sorry. . . Okay, I need to work on my MC Jesi, so I'll interview her again tonight.

Me: Okay Jesi, I'm going off a list here today. Do you have any bad habits?

Jesi: Um, I like to play with my hair.

Rea: She only does that when she's nervous or else needs to be comforted.

Me: Rea! How'd you get in here! Okay, to settle any confusion, Rea is Jesi's mom. Um, I suppose as you're her mom, you can sit in on this one, but don't do that again!

Rea: All right sweetie, but I am her mother and I will use the authority I have over her to become her lawyer if need be.

Me: *whispered* Okay, she has no idea. . . *Stops whispering* Okay Jesi, has anything scared you enough to keep you up at night?

Jesi: I'd probably say the night dad threatened me to stay away from these kids or else he'd bring me to the doctors. . . Doctors are scary.

Rea: Well honey, we had our reasons to make you afraid. I'm sorry it kept you awake at night though.

Me: Rea. . .

Rea: Sorry sweetie. Continue.

Me: Jesi, what do you think is your worst quality or attribute?

Jesi: I'm short.

Me: Seriously? Come on.

Jesi: Okay. . . Mom says I don't talk enough. I'm not good with words, I don't like talking.

Rea: Unless you're practicing an accent. Then you go nuts about talking about nothing at all. *rolls eyes*

Jesi: Mom. . .

Me: *smirk* Okay, last one. Do you have any extended family?

Jesi: I don't know. . . Mom?

Rea: I cannot say at the moment. I'm sorry, but I cannot say.

Me: Okay. This is kind of awkward, so, that's it for now. Goodnight folks!
