Stuffed Cushions - 60 Word Fiction

Plump cushions swelled on Uncle Joe’s chair, and tempted Alice. Her uncle was in the garden fussing with weeds.

She giggled, and landed in the centre of the cushions with a bump.

An uh-oh trembled as she heard a zip unzip, and a gulp followed as a cushion swallowed her whole. The stuffed cushion burped and hoped Joe wouldn’t hear.
