Mornelly Short Stories: The Dry Erase Board

So this happened recently while I was on a visit to the Mornelly's place...


The Dry Erase Board
by
Emily McConnell




Dear Aichear,
I am sorry I ate your pancake. I honest, honest did not see you wrote your name on the bag. I feel very guilty. Please forgive me. I’ll make you some more.
Love,
Aileen


Dear Aileen,
Since when did you know how to bake pancakes?
Aichear


Dear Aichear,
I can make pancakes. Breandan showed me. I can make a lot of things if you’d let me use the stove.
Love,
Aileen

Dear Aileen,
No. You’re not using the stove.
Aichear


Aichear,
I’m not a little girl anymore! I can cook on the stove, honest! I won’t burn anything. I mean it!
Aileen


Aileen,
Why are there burn spots on the stove?
Aichear


Dearest big brother Aichear, my favorite biggest  brother in the whole world,
The reason there are burn spots on the stove is because of a great incident involving white flour and fire. It was a frightening display of the power behind the temperature knobs on the stove, one that I shan’t be wanting to see again.
Love, your favorite little sister in the whole world,
Aileen


Dear Aileen,
From your choice of words I assume you attempted to cook on the stove without permission. Also, how can you be my favorite sister when you’re my only sister? Logic, please.
Aichear


Dear Aichear,
I’m sorry.
Love,
Aileen


Dear Aileen,
Don’t ever try that again. Bran told me all about your incident.
Aichear


Dear Aichear,
Again, I’m really sorry. I didn’t mean to do that. I didn’t realize the numbers on the stove meant how hot the stove got. I thought that meant how fast your food was done.
Love,
Aileen

P.S. I am your favorite sister, even though I’m your only one, right?


Dear Aileen,
I’m a bit confused where you got the notion the numbers are for speed. Please enlighten me. As to your postal script, why would you not be my favorite sister?
Aichear


Hey everyone, what's with this? -Damhán

Dear Damhán,
I'm mad at you right now so don't talk to us.
Love, Aileen

Nyeh nyeh, Aileen. Have fun cooking? >:-) -Damhán


Damhán,
Since when is it necessary to torment your little sister? Aileen- you have yet to explain yourself.
Aichear


Dear Aichear,
Damhán told me that the higher the numbers were on the stove knobs the faster things cooked, but only big people could use the bigger numbers because it doesn’t work for people of a certain age, like myself. I found his explanation very curious and lacking, so I tried it. I won’t ever do it again. I promise.
Love,
Aileen


Eh. -Ciarán


Ciarán if all you can say is "eh" why are you even participating?? -Bran


EH. -Ciarán


Oh for crying out loud, everyone. Seriously. -Bran


Bran,
Might I point out by writing you have participated?
Aichear


Bran you can be so LAME! B-) -Damhán


Dear everyone,
Please explain what this is about?
The Most Excellent Gerhard


Dear Gerhard,
You do not have permission to write on the board.
Aichear


Dear Aichear,
I hijacked the board! It is now MY board! And anyone who is wanting to write on it must deal with me and the most excellent crop! Wahahaha!
The Most Excellent Gerhard!


Gerhard,
Get out of the house.
Aichear


WAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHA! I’m not afraid of yo-


Dear Aichear,
Please let Gerhard out of the closet, and, do you forgive me?
Love,
Aileen


Dear Aileen,
Your apologies are accepted. You still owe me a pancake. Gerhard will remain confined to his quarters.
Aichear


Would you all stop writing on the board? This is for recipes!
-Breandan

  1. Hahaha!! Oh, I love this!!! This is how my siblings and I act. ;) I loved reading their conversation. Oh, is the closet where Gerhard was put on another occasion??? I still haven't gotten the story.
    Thanks for posting, Emily! And the picture of the dry erase board made me smile. :)

    1. I am sooo glad you enjoyed, Jesseca. Wait, I don't remember any other story where this took place... please refresh my memory, I really can't recall any other time he was locked in the closet. ;)

      Glad you enjoyed the story and thanks for commenting!

    2. I was referring to to the time when Gerhard took over a certain card and Bran had to "take care" of him. Bran hasn't told me what happened, so I was wondering if perhaps he had banished Gerhard to the closet. ;)

    3. That... is a good question. I honestly don't know, remember I decided to get sick right after that so I have no idea what happened with the whole card thing, I just had to send it. :P ;)

  2. WHAT?!?! Poor Gerhard! Locked up in the closet! :(
    I really liked it Emily! Thanks!
    P.S. Is that why Gerhard didn't come over yesterday?? ;)

    1. I'm so glad, Kai! Hmm yes that is probably why he didn't make his usual visit. Plus Gerhard is Gerhard, since when is he ever on time? ;)

  6. Ciaran sounds Canadian!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hahaha, well, actually, they way he says "eh" sounds more like a "eh whatever". His "eh" is short for "ask me if I care". So not quite Canadian, Canadians are nice. ;) Hehehe that reminds me of some hilarious Canadian jokes I was reading recently...

      Thanks for commenting and reading, glad you enjoyed!

    EH.

    Aw, why'd you guys lock my poor Most Excellent Gerhard in the closet? I would save you if I could, dearest guardian! Other than tormenting him, it was a Most excellent post! ;-)

    1. Welll I can't say Gerhard didn't deserve that, JT. He is somewhat... imposing. ;) But you will learn that when the first Volume is released. It includes an exclusive Gerhard story! :D
