Author's Notes:
Written for Challenge 325 – Clean Slate at tw100.

My third drabble for today, and my seventh for this challenge. I feel like I’m finally starting to get back into the swing of drabbling after only managing to squeeze out one or two for each of the last few prompts. Admittedly it’s a bit harder now that I’m juggling a bunch of writing challenges, but I love writing drabbles so I’ll find the time somewhere.

Summary: Jack buys the Fluffs a new toy.

Jack, genius that he was, had bought the Fluffs a blackboard and easel, setting it up in their play area. Once he’d managed to persuade little Dizzy that the chalk was NOT for eating, they’d taken to it like… Well, like Fluffs took to most things. That is to say, with a great deal of enthusiasm and mixed results.

They’d drawn wonky pictures over every inch, and when it was covered they’d cleaned it off so they could start again.

Jack looked at the spotless blackboard, then at the mucky, chalk-dust covered Fluffs.

“Board cleaner! I knew I’d forgotten something.”
