Jane Jago’s Drabbles – Four Hundred and Sixty-Two

“But Mum. Teacher says the dead can rise.”

“No hon, he said given a very specific set of circumstances they could possibly leave their graves…”

Mum looked sternly at the twins.

“He also said the risen dead would last less than a breath out of their earthy beds.”

“So there’s nothing to worry about?”

“Not a thing.”

“And all that stuff about rocks having consciousness?”

Mum stopped the car and rotated her head to look into the back seat.

“Well we know that’s bollocks, don’t we.”

As one child the twins nodded.

“So they haven’t rumbled us then?”

Mum laughed.
