Berena prompt: Quarantine

Anon, here you go. I hope this is okay. =0)

“Well, do you want to take more of my blood,” Bernie remarked as the man in the hazmat suit drew some more blood from her.
Serena tried to be serious but the corner of her lip keeps twitching into a grin.
“Bernie, stop it. He is just trying to be sure YOU are not exposed,” Serena holding the cotton ball to the inside of her elbow where blood was drawn.
“Okay, Wolfe, I am done, you and Ms. Campbell stay in here in this office. Do not go anywhere except when you are released,” The hazmat man ordered as he packed the tubes of blood into the cooler and walked out of the office, closing and locking the room.
“Well, this is familiar. We have been here before haven’t we,” Serena giggled.
Bernie looks at Serena lovingly and sat on the top of Serena’s desk. “Indeed we have.”
Serena and Bernie looking at each other, reminiscing all the kisses that has occurred in the office.
Serena threw away the cotton ball in the trash can and walked toward Bernie. Bernie moved her feet few spaces apart to let Serena stand in front of her. Serena’s arms are over Bernie’s shoulders. Bernie’s arms wrap around Serena’s body.
“I am really glad you are here,” Serena spoke softly.
“So am I,” Bernie’s eyes looks deeply into Serena’s eyes, “this is not how I expect this to go but I want to say…urm…well… this quarantine change my perspective. I was really scared at this whole relationship because I failed many time before. However… You… this thing between you and I are so strong I can not push it aside any longer. Serena… I love you. I don’t care who knows about us. I want you to be my…my…my girlfriend.”
Serena grinned, “Yes. I am yours.”
Bernie smiled and pulled Serena closer for a kiss.
Just right before their lips met, the office door opens and a voice spoke,
“You both are cleared to go.”

Regrowing Cotton from a Store-Bought Bouquet

These past few years, I’ve been noticing decorative bouquets of cotton appearing at floral shops/nurseries during the holiday season, at least around my region in Northeastern US. Still attached to their original stalks, the tufts are sometimes gilded with gold paint or dusted with glitter. What I realized this year was that the cotton bolls are stilled filled with seeds, but they were damn tricky to pluck out. Aaaaaaand they are aliiiiive!!!! Your guess is as good as mine as to the genetic makeup. It’s highly likely these are GMOed, but I’ll be growing these indoors for curiosity. Given my climate, I don’t hold much hope on growing this into maturity, but who knows…

DIY Nebula Bottle

These bottles are a cross between Nebular Jars, Sand Art, and Calming Bottles. 

What is interesting about these Nebula Bottles, is that there is no paint in them, but there is sand. So all you need is for this DIY is glitter, food coloring, cotton balls and sand.

I like almost any Space DIY. You can check out my posts for Constellation DIYs here, Nebula DIYs here, and Galaxy DIYs here.
