March drabbles - 8

Danny told his Mom he was leaving home.
“Put your coat on first,” said Mom.
“It’s not cold.”
“This spring weather, you can never be sure.”
So he shrugged into his coat and fastened it up.
“D’you want a granola bar in case you get hungry.”
“Yes please Mom,” said he.
“Let me fasten your shoes.”
Then he was off.

Danny’s friend Jake was drinking lemonade in his front yard, three houses up the street.
“Wanna share my granola bar?”
“Sure. Wanna play at my house.”
“Sure.”

Then Jake’s Mom phoned Danny’s Mom. “No problem. Danny’s here.”
“Thanks,” said she.
