Title: Fireflies

Characters: Alton and Mitchel

Written for the September 2012 Tea Room Firefly Challenge

We thought we would have no problem catching a few fireflies, but we did. 

Kyle, that bitch, we should never let him choose the consequences of losing a dare.

Being the queens that we are, we had do this in style—naked but for a pair of beautiful wings, body glitter sparkling in the moon light and our painted bums radiating with glow in the dark body paint. 

We streaked through camp buzzing around our partners and friends--the most beautiful fireflies they’ve ever seen--praying that later our partners won’t light our bums on fire with evil fly swatters.

He marched in sequined hot pants.  First holding Kyle’s hand for reassurance, and once Alton joined them—sandwiched between his best friends.  I shed a tear of joy for my beloved—our life was feeling normal again. 

I knew he would be exhausted after the parade; it was the longest he’d spent on his leg since the accident.  So after the parade, I found him; I handed him a bouquet of purple lisianthus with a short note. 
Our bed is covered in silk purple sheets and the candles are ready to be lit.  Let me take you home to celebrate our love.

Ziggy and I raced to catch the police contingent—there had been a disagreement about my t-shirt. I wanted to wear my ‘Save a Drum—Bang a Police Officer’ shirt. Ziggy disagreed.  I could still feel his disagreement on my butt. I was now wearing my ‘Proud PAPD Husband’ tee.

We held hands as we passed the grandstands--marching behind the Chief of Police and fifty other officers—the crowd stood and gave a standing ovation. Ziggy had tears in his eyes.  I took a step closer to him and squeezed his hand.  “I am a very Proud PAPD Husband,” I told him.
