R is for ..... Real

This is a work of fiction and forms a part of the Blogging from A to Z Challenge. I will attempt to write a new story based on the word for the day every day during the month of April.



Everyone should have a friend like Ronnie. When I am upset, she lets me cry on her shoulder. When I want to play with her, she plays with me. But when I am preoccupied with something else, she doesn’t clamour for attention. When I am sick, she rarely leaves my bedside, but she doesn’t expect me to do the same for her.

Ronnie is the best friend anyone could hope to have. So what if she started her life as a stuffed toy? My love for her may have rubbed her fur off, but it has also made her Real.

A Drabble is a story told in exactly 100 words.

I have a soft toy called Cyril the Squirrel, not the most usual of soft toys but I adore him.

Enjoy the week-end.

Natasha - Everybody needs a 'Ronnie.' I'm glad you have one. Life is so uncertain that we need that stability.

Oh bless Ronnie! I have a Berty bear he has been with me since I can remember. I just popped by to say Hi from a fellow April Challenger. Wishing you well with the rest of your posts Becs

Hello, Natasha... I enjoyed the little rabbit story. I have a Beanie Baby that is named for me (Ruby) and she wears a purple hat, like me. A good friend gave her to me when I moved away a few years ago. She sits on a display shelf in my living room. Best regards to you. Ruby

OOPs, she is a bear, isn't she? Sorry... I took another look at the picture just before I left. Ruby.
