Wed. Words: Clarisse-the-she-devil and Samuel

Grammie announced that she would hold a Formal Spring Tea Bridal Shower for Clarisse and Samuel.  “Oh, they have been friends since pre-school!  Imagine our two families together!”

Nana shook her head.  She has no idea, none at all.  Samuel AND Clarisse-the-she-devil? God help us…she choked at the possibilities.

The day came with the frippery and frivolity that only Grammie could create.  It was as if a Smurf and Pepto-Bismol had smashed into each other.  Guests held comments with great restraint, smiling at the lovely bride.  Being at Grammie’s hosted events meant that respect, true or false, was expected.

Clarisse rigidly held back, as if coated in royal icing.  Oh, Samuel…how could you let me fall for this?

As if reading her thoughts, an airplane flew overhead, pulling a long banner.  Clarisse squinted to read the message.

Clarisse, I love you!  Get the Hell outta there!  Samuel

And Clarisse threw off her heels, taking off at a run.  Samuel waited on a Harley, revved-up and ready to go.  In your face, Grammie!

The sites listed below are my intro to a long running character, Samuel, a brilliant sociopath.

  1. One can only hope that in the fullness of time Samuel and Clarisse have children who are also rebels. If they were to have 'grey cardigan' children it is hard to know who know who would suffer most.

  2. Samuel to the rescue! On the best bike ever!
    Like EC, I hope they have rebel children who will keep the world guessing just as much as they themselves do.

    1. One can only wonder if they can stay one step ahead of the brilliant sociopath children.

    1. The way of all children, I guess. Samuel will have to tone down his natural destructiveness to pay the bills.

    1. Grammie never ever learns. But Nana, on the other hand, is fully aware.
