“Beep boop boop beep,” cooed little Arianna.

“Honey, honey wake up, Arianna is talking and it is time for her dinner,” Arlan picked up Arianna and carried her into Astrid.

“What are you talking about Arlan? We don’t have any children. How many times must I tell you that?”

Astrid screamed and jumped up confused and sleepy. I must be dreaming again!

“Get that thing away from me. Don’t the batteries ever wear out?”

“Astrid, Astrid wake up.”

“Honey why don’t you go to bed and I’ll feed Arianna?” By all means, feed your fancy doll!


Astrid walked into the kitchen where she heard noises. Now there was a large purple and green character in her kitchen with the small one called Arianna. I must be dreaming!

“Beep boop boop beep,” the large one said

Astrid fainted.

“Honey what happened? We are going to be late for the costume party. Put on your costume and grab the doll. I was just practicing our lines.”

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.

    Interesting that Astrid doesn’t know what’s real. But maybe what she thinks she sees is real? Or not? Good take on the prompt.
