Porcupine packed his cases for the trip home. “I do hope you’ll favor me with a gifting of a few of your delicious treats for the train home? It was such a wonderful table set last night.”
Porcupine watched Prairie Dog check his watch for the fourth time. “Time will still pass, you don’t have to check it but, when things jump off, time is going to stand still. Very, very still.”
Porcupine went home with quills full of treats. It was just easier that way.
