Kate lay sunbathing, almost asleep,
on the banana lounge beside the
small pool in her backyard. She had
just finished exams at university and
was pleased to be able to enjoy the
warm weather, at home and without worries. It was so quiet, and
nothing but the sun was to be seen
in the blue sky. The grass smelled
good and trees rustled with the
slight breeze. She was disturbed from this tranquil
dozing by a small plop in the pool
beside her, and glancing over, she
saw something shiny in the slowly
lapping water. It reminded her that she had been
out long enough, and ought to
return back indoors before she got
sunburnt. Before she did though,
she concluded to retrieve this
projectile which had disturbed her. Even by leaning over the edge she
couldn?t reach it, so she stepped
slowly into the cool water which
quenched her boiling legs. Wading
over to the object, she saw that it
was an aeroplane, some kid?s toy, probably thrown over by the little
brat next door. It was about ten centimetres long,
Kate noticed as she reached down
and plucked it from the water.
Drops ran off it and onto her hand.
It had four engines, but that was all
that was remarkable to her ? she had seen planes like this at the
airport (only much bigger, of
course). Tucking it into the top of
her red and white striped bikini she
waded out and dried her legs with a
towel. The morning?s newspaper lay on the
bench as Kate returned to the
kitchen from dropping her towel in
the laundry, and she picked it up to
read. She sat at the table and
plucked the uncomfortable toy from her breast and lay it on the edge in
front of her as she flicked through
the paper. After a few moments she glanced at
the shiny model and noticed
something odd ? little yellow tubes
had fallen out of the sides of the
tiny jet and rested on the table, just
like on movies when a plane crashes and the people jump down the big
had conglomerated into a few
groups. When she placed her finger
onto one of these little groups, the
specks stuck to her wet skin, and
she held it up to her face. It almost looked like they were moving. Kate
put her finger in her mouth and
sucked the tiny lollies off ? they
didn?t dissolve but rolled around her
tongue until going down her throat.
She didn?t think they had a great taste, but they were nice. Scores of the small candies sat in
groups on the table, and Kate bent
down and licked them up with her
tongue. They stuck to her lips and
some even to her teeth, so she
licked them off and rolled them around her mouth before
swallowing them. It was quite an odd toy, she thought. There were heaps of little novelties that had lollies inside them, but this one was a bit quirky. She picked it up between her fingers and held it close to her face. More tiny specks fell out as she rolled it from side to side, and they tumbled down the top of her bikini, some falling on her breasts but most ending up between them. Kate pushed her finger in between her breasts to try and retrieve them, but most of the specks that were piled up at the bottom of the elastic simply smeared into tiny red smudges with her sweat. She decided to keep what was left of the tiny lollies for her mother coming home from work, so she rushed them onto a page of the newspaper and shook them into the centre, leaving the plane with them, in case more came out.
