old pram

“grass stains and grazed knees”


grass stains
and grazed knees
rope swings
hanging on trees
meeting mates
early in the park
no tea for us as
we’re out ‘til well after dark
sliding down dry grass
on cardboard sheet
morning paper round
bought weekly treats
Friday night table tennis
at the youth club
Saturday left with crisps & pop
at door of the pub
river paddling and
catching crayfish
hiding behind trees
stealing a kiss
summer in the hay barns
hoping farmer don’t see
climbing into gardens
to raid apple trees
arguing and fighting
with elder siblings
thorny bush scratches
and nettle stings
catching frogs and newts
in local brook
night time ritual of
Dr Zeuss books
Cat in the Hat
Green Eggs and Ham
sitting on shop doorways
playing kick the can
making bows & arrows
for cowboys & Indians
summer bike rides
taking pillions
camping out in
neighbours back yard
getting caught smoking
mom’s hand was hard
lads playing football
and picking your side
pooh sticks and
piggy back rides
day trips to seaside
on a charabanc
making a bogie from
planks & an old pram
rope swings
hanging on trees
grass stains and
grazed knees

Request: I was wondering if you would write an imagine where the reader (female) and Dan were together but Dan broke up with them and he meets her a year later in a shop or something and she’s got a baby in a pram that’s the image of Dan?

Word count: 422

Warnings: Nope

This was adorable to write! Enjoyy

It had been at least three years since you last saw Dan, and yet, there he was, scanning the frozen items with a look of concentration. He looked different – much more mature, and his hair was shorter and no longer straightened. He looked… Happier.

You debated if you should go and speak to him, but you didn’t have to make this decision as he grabbed something from the freezer and turned to see you staring at him. A surprised grin spread across his face, and your heart still did the small skip it always did when you saw him.

“Y/N? How long as it been?” He called, his eyes widening as he saw the next thing on your mind.

The two-year-old in the pram before you gave away your biggest secret.

“Hey, Dan.” You smiled nervously, returning the embrace he was offering. “How have you been?”

“Great, thanks. I see you have a new addition?” He grinned softly at the little boy. You hoped hadn’t seen the familiar coloured eyes and shape of lips as his father.

“Yeah… I do.” You giggled.

“What’s his name?” He asked, crouching down and allowing the young boy to grab his finger.

“James.” You replied. Dan laughed, running his thumb across James’ cheek.

“Is his dad around?” This question made your heart sink. You knew you should tell him, but how?

“Well… You are his dad.” You finally sighed, watching your son, unable to look Dan in the eye.

“Wait- What- You mean?” Dan stood back up, completely baffled. “Why didn’t you tell me?” His voice grew soft, and you smiled sadly.

“You were young, had such a big future. I couldn’t stop all that for you.” You glanced up to look at Dan, his eyes tearful.

“You were younger, though. Y/N, I could have helped you.” He sighed.

“I coped on my own.” You ran your fingers through your hair. “I made some decisions, Dan. I was young and scared… But never have I once regretted having him.” You stood in silence for a while after.

“Well… I’d like to be back in his life, and yours. If I am his dad, I want to be a good one.” Dan’s tone was hopeful, and you smiled.

“I never wanted you out of his life.” You scanned his eyes, which seemed to reflect guilt.

“I’m sorry.” The words were barley a whisper.

“You didn’t know.” You pulled him into a hug, kissing his cheek. “We have the future to make things good again, right?”

“Of course.”

Nolan’s (Jade’s) Story (Number 2): When I was a kid I used to go up to a buddy’s cabin every summer. It was on this little lake and real quiet. There was a tiny store about a fifteen-minute walk from the cabin, and besides that it was all empty. 

Once, when we were maybe sixteen, his parents sent us to the store for some milk and eggs. We decided to take a little detour off in the woods, you know, John Smith around and shit. It was a nice day, hot, sun was shining, we just thought it’d be fun to poke around. 

We got maybe a half a mile off course and all of a sudden, we come up to this clearing. There’s nothing around but trees and bushes, but sitting right in the middle of everything is this baby carriage. It was one of those old-fashioned prams with the lace hemming over the bassinet. It looked like it’d been there a long time, all dusty and dirty and rusted. I wasn’t interested in going any further. We stopped dead in our tracks and booked it back towards the store. 

I was inspired to try and find the oldest piece of writing I hadn’t deleted and it’s from right after I turned 14. It… is the most pretentious thing… omfg. I was so proud of this shit. It was my featured deviation, back when the dA lit community was active and cool. I thought I was a fucking prodigy. At least I can confirm that my obsession with girls who have boy names and kiss girls has been ongoing for at least twelve years.

anonymous asked:

Y'know how in professional baby photos they usually have some kinda prop. Like newborns'll be sleeping on a little tiny bed or in mine cause i was a little older i was standing up holding onta a little old fashioned pram. Well i like to think that chris kept the helmet from his first space suit from his first trip to the iss and for your daughter's baby photos she's curled up sleeping in it or if she's a lil older she's sitting up in it peeking over the top

i couldnt find the photos i wanted of this but i love everything about this
