365 Drabble Challenge #9


Rastus watched aghast as his daughter played with the other children. The game was hide and seek, but when Naida's turn came up, she simply used her song to draw the other children out.

Molpe appeared beside him wearing an amused smile. "She's very good at this."

Rastus frowned. "She's cheating. You're meant to run around and find the others."

Molpe let out a musical laugh, the siren's voice making Rastus feel lightheaded.

"Gods," he sighed, "Why did I have a child with you?"

She smiled radiantly, kissing him on the cheek, "If you didn't, I would have eaten you."
