"Hello, Hazel here," said the happy-go-lucky hammerhead shark into her phone.
"Winnie! How are you? What's happening?"
"Is that Winnie? Is it true about her and Thomas?" called Davey from across the dressing room. She and her brothers Dicky and Danny swam over and hovered closely by.
"Hopping high, you say. . .Huh, say that again? The Daffodils are being quite hyper right now. . .
"We are not!" said Danny, splashing a bit huffily. "Shhh," Dicky said to his brother.
"Hoooo Hooo Hoooo!" Hazel turned to the triplets. "Winnie and Thomas are getting hitched."
"Hurrah! Hurrah! Hurrah!"
Hard pounding knocks on the dressing room door hushed the performers. Through the door, they heard "Five minutes to show time!"
"Winnie, we are so very happy for you!. . .Can you hear the Daffodils? They're all heedless with joy. . . Honey, the show is about to start. Let me call . . .Really? You want me to perform the Hawaiian Wedding Song dance?. . .I would be honored to do the hula for you and Thomas at your wedding. I'm humbled. . .Yes, yes, I'll call you tonight. Give your sweetheart a huge 'hear-hear' from us. Love you!"
Hazel and the Daffodils hugged each other, hardly containing their joy. They twirled harum-scarum around each other as they headed out the door for their first performance of the day at the Honalee Bay Aquarium.
Oh, happy days! A wedding celebration is on the horizon for the ABC Wednesday creatures. Stay tuned.
H is the theme for week two of Round 22 of ABC Wednesday. Check it out here. Thank you much, ABCW team!
love the story and the illustration is fantastic. It's something I'd put on my wall and I'm very choosy what goes up there. I just saw a short documentary on Amazon about mermaid swimmers from Weeki Wachee called The Spring, your story and drawing reminded me of it.ReplyDelete
Thanks for mentioning The Spring, I'll have to watch it. I live about 45 min. from Weeki Wachee.Delete
Thanks, Jeanna. I'm kinda flustered thinking that someone other then myself would want to put my drawings on their wall. :-) I'm going to check out the Spring, too. I came across a cartoon the other day in which young mermaids and mermans dressed in train conductor and engineer clothes singing about riding a train. It was sooo cute.Delete
I love your drawings and stories. I wish I was that I was that talented.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Vicki. Wishes can come true. I didn't start drawing--and doing anything artistic--until recently. I had no idea I had it in me.Delete
Your tale is so romantic and poetic! Thanks!ReplyDelete
Oh what a fun and creative drawing and delightful story ~ xxxReplyDelete

I love your drawing and Mr. Hammer seems so happy. I love the story..it is so sweet and would be great for a kid’s storyReplyDelete
Thanks, Brigit. I love how this one came out with the cut-outs to give the drawing more depth. :-)Delete
How wonderful! ... and Honalee is the home of Purr the Magic Dragon too! :DReplyDelete
I knew you'd get the reference to Honalee, Widders. :-)Delete
