[Original] The Toy Spat

The challenge issued by one Amy R. was as follows. To work on an exercise of dialogue between two characters for at least two pages without forgetting setting, characterization and description! There was a bonus challenge further issued to complete this challenge without the use of adverbs (which I had to be re-educated on sadly because I’d forgotten their exact definition but I’ve known what they are all along) which I sadly failed miserably at by one adverb only!

And thus, The Toy Spat was born!  Bonus points by the way if you can figure out which two book characters I’m referring to, their series and who wrote said series.  PS: It’s a long time favourite of mine and my copies of said books are quite well loved.

But when home is harmonious,
And everything is fine,
Inner Peace is found as easily
As the blinking of one’s eye.

The characters can look anyway that you want them to. 🙂 Use your imagination and let me know what you think the characters look like.
