Judy and John – Part 7 – The Newborn
– by Teresa Smeigh Dec 2015
Joan was racing behind the ambulance trying to keep up. Just then Fluffy, Judy’s cat, jumped in Joan’s lap. Joan swerved, hit a piece of ice and slid over the road and crashed into the ambulance which came to a halt.
The toy dog they had gotten for the new baby came flying into the front seat too. Where had Fluffy been all this time? She saw him slide through a small hole beside the seat and into the trunk.
Fluffy had pulled the little stuffed dog into the back seat and then jumped into Joan’s lap looking for Judy. She smelled her and the new baby. She was disturbed and wanted to assert her ownership of Judy.
John came running back and said, “The ambulance is out of service. How about the car?”
“Hurry John, his breathing is slowing down,” Judy screamed, newly revived and found they had been in an accident.
Joan’s car was alright so everyone moved back into it. Joan, Judy who was cuddling her baby for now and the EMT who was working on the baby’s breathing were in the front seat and the other technician, the driver, and John sat in the back.
Joan took off and sped down the road paying more attention to the ice slicks. They arrived at the hospital emergency room and out of the banged up car come a recently pregnant mother, her mother holding her up and the EMT holding the baby now.
Followed by the father, the ambulance driver, and Fluffy the cat dragging the little stuffed dog in its mouth.
They were rushing in and wondered why all the laughter. They hadn’t seen the cat trailing behind.
Constructive Criticism is appreciated as always.
