April Fool’s Bull


This is my entrance into this week’s Flash Fiction for Aspiring Writers. Photo courtesy of S. Writings.

“This is gonna be great!” Milky snickered.

“Shhh! You’ll give us away. I didn’t work my udder off with the body paint just for you to ruin the plan because you can’t keep hold of yerself.”

“Uh, Hank? You’re a bull…you don’t have an udder…”

“Oh for beef’s sake, Milky. It’s an expression. Now, shush. Here comes someone.”

The two bulls stood still, their multicolored metallic paint of leaves and flowers gleamed in the sunlight, and they waited.

A young man walked hand-in-hand with a young woman down the cobbled street toward the bulls, lost in each other’s eyes.

“Oh, they’re so pretty! Take my picture?” the young woman cooed at the man.

She nestled in between the two statue-like bulls and placed one arm on each.

“Say moo,” the young man laughed.

“MOOOOOOOOO!” The bulls erupted. “April Fool’s!”

And the bulls collapsed in laughter while the young couple ran.
