Rabbit Suit

"Why are you wearing a rabbit suit?" "Why are you wearing a little human suit?"

A Gathering

They gathered en masse under the awning of the stall, grabbing a little shelter from the light but persistent drizzle. Even from a distance it was clear that they were crowding the proprietor of the street business; it looked… odd. "Do you have any large bags?" asked the woman at the front, her eyes scanning the stall but not glancing at its owner. "I've got some small paper bags," she answered with a...
