Spoiled by Eight Uncles (Lily)

Chapter 8 Unworthy to Be Lilly’s Mother

Lilly looked around the garden and shouted, “Polly!”

A loud squawk was heard, followed by the flight of a colorful parrot out of the woods. However, after flying one round around Lilly, it quickly flew back into the trees.

“Polly is scared of you, Uncle Gilbert,” the little girl whispered, motioning for Gilbert to remain silent. Her large watery eyes and endearing actions made her look adorable. He looked at the garden and suggested, “Lilly, why don’t I send someone to catch Polly so we can bring it home?”

She frowned and shook her head. “No.” As though worried that the parrot was eavesdropping, she checked her surroundings, she added, “We can’t catch Polly because it will be scared. It’s a good bird.”

Even though Lilly’s rationale amused Gilbert, he nodded and agreed to her plan.

“Don’t move, Uncle Gilbert,” the little girl tapped on his shoulder and instructed. She then walked into the garden and called for Polly once more.

“A Dumb Dumb! A Dumb! Dumb!” Polly sat on the tree branch and chirped.

Lilly chided, “Uncle Gilbert isn’t a Dumb Dumb, Polly.”

“A Bad Dog! A Bad Dog!” Polly chirped once more.

“Uncle Gilbert isn’t a Bad Dog,” the little girl explained. Gilbert was speechless at the incredulous conversation.
