Oh Why Not! We heard from the other two parties involved!

“Well Harold, the dirt certainly has been flying around here lately.”

“Boy you said it Pete. Nothing like good simulation to get a flower growing in this hothouse. Who’s fault do you think it is?”

“Neither really. They’re both victims of circumstances.”

“Yeah. Did you see the looks on the neighbor’s faces when we first bloomed out? They weren’t quite sure that to make of us.”

“You bet. A classic Kodak moment it was.”

“Can you believe the law enforcement took Anna as a sample down to the station?”

“I wonder if they read her her rights?”

“Good grief! She’s a flower you nut! More than likely they watered her.”

“Oh and the look on Mr. Garden’s face, when he walked in and saw the President of the National Society holding us up.”

“Now that….was priceless. Absolutely priceless. I was welting all over the place from shear laughter.”

“And his explanation.”

“Which one, the one the members heard or the one that we heard.”

“Ha. You know which one.”

“He definitely won an Oscar for that little performance."

“I’ll say.”

“Did you see when one of the members of the national society smuggled Petra into his pocket.”

“Poor Petra, I hope she’ll be all right.”

“Oh I don’t know. That Jaguar he pulled up in wasn’t a junk box, bud.”

“That’s right. Petra may be living the high life now.”

“How Mr. Garden ever convinced three of the members to go over to Ms. Wilson’s garden at midnight to have a look around was a masterpiece?”

“Yes indeed. I thought it was hysterical. I almost used up all my water supply from my roots imaging the goings on over there. After all we know that garden like the back of our stems. Hope they didn’t fall into the water hole she was digging up and not to mention steering clear of the guard dog.”

“You mean Bruno.”

“He’s fake.”

“What!!!! Well may I bloom back a different color? I thought he was real.”


“Gee. They’re lucky they didn’t get arrested. The neighborhood watch is pretty tough over there. Four grown men tipping around in the dark. What a hoot.”

“You think with all the fascination about us, we should get a moment on Dateline?”

“No. No. That show comes on too late. We need to be on earlier like Entertainment Tonight. Or how about Oprah?”

“Well why not.”

“Unusual aren’t we.”

“We are indeed!”

Cles, I looked at this story in return for you looking at mine. You said kind things, but 'tis plain that you've talent I'll never have. A story that is 100% dialogue is difficult to write, but you've pulled it off elegantly. A very cute story--one that I'll remember. I'm late for work, but look forward to reading more of your stories later. Keep writing.
