And I Think It's Going to Be a Long, Long Time

A young Upchuck ficlet by Angelinhel in response to an Iron Chef to write a short short using a line or title of a song as the title of the story. "And I think it's going to be a long, long time" is a lyric from the song "Rocket Man," by Elton John. The story gives an explanation for Upchuck's trademark phrase, "Grrr... feisty!"

Plot Summary edit

Warning: The following may contain plot or ending details.

Little Charles is once again left with a babysitter while his social-elite parents head out to another fancy party. Feeling sorry for the little boy, the babysitter picks him up to comfort him. Charles sees a shiny locket around her neck and grabs for it, missing and grabbing her chest instead. Knowing it was an innocent mistake, she laughs and says, "You're a feisty one, aren't you, Tiger?" (using her nickname for him).

Charles replies with a child's tiger-growl saying, "Grrr...feisty!"
