Drabble: On A Cold Easter Night – by Liz Rylen

by specklit

Mable pulled the trembling bunny closer to her chest, enough to feel its tiny heart beating. On the floor before them, a piece of rainbow bubbled in a lead cauldron.

“I’m sorry,” Nancy whispered. The bunny, not caring for its cramped position, twisted out of her grasp. It landed in a basket of eggs and darted away covered in magical yolk. Nancy cried out and grabbed for the rabbit, but only managed to knock over the cauldron. Steaming hot rainbow splashed everywhere, scorching fur and flesh alike.

The front door had been left open.

Seeing its chance, the bunny escaped.

Author’s Note: Really, could the Easter Bunny be anything other than a freak magical accident?
