Jane Jago’s Daily Drabble – Three Hundred and Forty

George was a gentle creature, slow moving even for one of his kind and deliberate of thought and speech.

When Mabel was introduced to the group, all the males hustled around her puffing out their cheeks and making their most macho grunting noises.

She ignored them, choosing instead to come and munch some fresh greens at George’s side.

When Alfred attempted to mount her she flipped him over onto his back and continued munching.

“A girl likes to be asked,” she said quietly.

It was many days before George did ask, shyly.

Mabel nodded, and they tended the eggs together.
