Writing Prompt: Car and Fruit
Janessa sighed with boredom. She looked at the clock for what felt like the hundredth time. She still had ten minutes left of her shift. It was going to feel like it was dragging on forever. She was in a hurry to get off. The farmer’s market she adored was in town, but only for a couple more hours. She had to go stock up before they left again. She knew they would be back in a month, but that was just too long to wait.
Josey’s Farmer’s Market had the best fruit and vegetables that existed. She knew for a fact that Josey made sure they were the best with a little enhancement in the magical department. She also knew that if any narrow minded townie found that out that they would quit buying from her all together. They were all a bunch of hypocrites. Don’t mind using the product and praising it as long as they don’t know too much about it.
When the ten minutes were finally over and Janessa had clocked out, she all but ran to her car. Luckily, it didn’t give her any trouble starting up. The ride to the market was short and sweet. She got out of her car and hurried over to the market. Josey met her at the entrance with a hug and a smile.
“I was wondering when you were going to get here, gorgeous. I have some things set aside just for you.”
“Oh thank you so much! I’ve been in a mood all day! I asked for the day off but Manager Douche Rocket decided that Miss Does Nothing All Day deserved to have the day off more than I did.”
“Figures. He really must want to get in her pants badly.”
“Between us, I think he already is. I don’t know for sure. Just a suspicion I have.”
“You’re probably right, but that’s none of our concern. Come with me.”
Janessa followed Josey to her private section. Josey pilfered through the items on the table before finally finding the box she was looking for. With a smile she promptly handed everything over to Janessa. She also refused any offers of payment that Janessa tried to give her. She was practically dancing as she made her way back around the table.
“Shall we pursue the market a bit? I can’t wait to show you the new things that have been growing on my farm.”
“I’d love to. Thank you. Thank you again for all of this. A lot of this is going to come in handy.”
“I thought it would. Nobody knows you’re practicing?”
“Well Mal knows, but nobody else really. You know how the people in this town get. They know it exists, but they don’t want to see it.”
“Yeah yeah. I’ll leave that alone. You know how I feel about their attitudes.”
“I do indeed. I love your feisty spirit. What would I do without it? You really should come and visit more than just two or three days a month.”
“I know you’d like that, but I have a business to run darlin’ It’s all I can do to visit all the towns I need to visit and spend time at home to get the resources I need to sell.”
“I know I know. I guess I’ll just have to go visit you when you’re at your home more often. Maybe even help with the product.”
“Now there’s an offer I can get behind. Maybe it will even help with your practicing.”
“That was the general idea. Yes. You wouldn’t mind?”
“I’d be honored.”
They made their way through the rest of the market in silence. They broke the silence here and there to discuss the products that were in front of them. Janessa wound up buying way more than she should have in goods. She was happy with what she got. She was especially happy to find her favorite big juicy peaches there. She bought a big box of them knowing that with the special spell that they would last for quite a while.
