Little Red Fox
At Banks Road Vineyard
“Do they call you boss?” I asked excitedly to Issy, the daughter of the owner of Banks Road vine yard (who not only lets out the space known as Little Red Fox but also makes the wine that is Bank Road) and also a good friend. We strolled across from her house, admiring the sculptures that lounged on the lawn. She shook her head.
“What should I have?” I fizzed.
“A brownie, some waffles, a milkshake…” She ticked off her fingers.
The sun streamed onto the Little Red Fox curled up in the canvas. I gulped down the chocolate milkshake and sculpted the waffles with my glinting knife. Grass rolled over the hills and continued before merging with a field of vines and Port Phillip Bay beyond. Chatter floated aimlessly around, drifting into anybody’s ears. My eyes spotted a box of toys.
My heart thumped. My breaths were shed evenly and heavily. Fire blazed through my legs as I twisted through the trees, milk and maple syrup bubbling in my stomach. Trees tried to block me, leaving me with scratches and bruises. I ducked behind a large, metal frame as Issy and Abby flew past in a blur, diving for Chloe.
