Hide and Seek by Teresa Dean Smeigh 2015

“Ready or not here I come!”

There was silence all around Jenny. She looked around the trees and bushes around her by she didn’t see a bit of movement.

“Timmy, Tommy come out please.”

Silence. Where could they have gone?

She looked off into the distance where 2 huge rocks were standing out on the open fields next door. She saw a cowboy heading towards her.

“What are you boys doing?” the angry man asked.

Two little figures came out from behind the stones. “We’re sorry,” they squeaked.
Jenny ran towards them.

“I am sorry for the trouble they caused.”

“And you would be?”

“Jenny Foster.”

“She’s our nanny,” Tommy said.

“Well Jenny, what do you think the punishment should be for trespassing?”

“Uhhh,” Jenny stammered. The boys hid behind her.

“I think Jenny should have dinner with me tonight.”

“I, uh,” she looked at the handsome cowboy.

“Go Jenny, we don’t want a spanking,” they chorused.

“What’s your name”

“John Barker.”

“The John Barker?”

“None other!”

“Oh, yes.”

About Tessa

My name is Tessa Dean and I am an author and blogger. My writing styles vary and I love writing using prompts. I am also writing my first book, a Memoir entitled "Government Property - A Memoir of a Military Wife".  This is being published on the blog rather than the traditional way. I am putting up chapters as I go along. I keep my blog filled with useful content, stories, and poems. Plenty to keep you busy. I have also been interviewed by blogs and had other posts published on many different blogs. I also wrote a series of articles on Bipolar Disorder for IBPF (International Bipolar Foundation). I am in my 60’s and disabled which allows me plenty of time to write to my heart’s content. I live in southern New Jersey and have 3 children and 5 grandchildren. My oldest grandchild is a Sargent in the United States Marine Corps.
