The vanishing rabbit by KL Caley
For visually challenged writers, the image shows a pair of comical glasses shaped like a rabbit’s ears and whiskers, the glasses are in a hedgerow.
James Stewart had Harvey, a white rabbit nobody could see but him.
Well, he might not be Harvey, but he was really annoyed that no-one could see him, so he decided to opt for some visual assistance.
The glasses were a fun idea, and he made the whiskers out of some shredded plastic.
He felt quite pleased with the effect and settled down in the ivy to wait.
There was a lot of giggling going on, so he put on his best smile but the little girls got spooked and ran away.
It was weird, but rabbits don’t lay eggs, so sitting on a small clutch was both alien and painful to his invisible buttocks.
The irony was he didn’t even like chocolate, but every year, he had to go through this rigmarole of playing the Easter Bunny and making sure nobody saw him. He wold love some recognition, just once, but it looked like it wasn’t to be.
Disappointed, he took off the glasses and whiskers and left them behind as he hopped away…………. and went smack into the knees of a little boy.
‘Hello,’ he said.
‘Um, Hi’ he replied.
‘My name’s Jimmy, what’s yours?’
In for a penny, in for a pound he thought……….
‘Harvey,’ and taking the little boy’s hand, the two walked off together.
