She thinks about her children and smiles.

Today, her boys Jack and Christopher have gone an "adventure" in the tree-grove behind their house.

They were pirates today, using long, wrapping-paper tubes as swords which doubled as telescopes. The two were running around, chasing each other through the trees as the day's air slowly turned to night and the sky grew pink, then orange, then black.

She hasn't yet called them inside for dinner. She's not quite ready.

She puts down her pen and rubs her eyes and she knows only one of them will come inside.
Eff-yeah metafiction.

Your simple yet striking writing style gives an innocent and poetic charm to your story, i love it :love:! Only, I'm slightly confused about the last sentence...

Well, it's a little bit of metafiction, and the woman is referring to these characters that she has created. She is rather attached to them (like children) and is planning to kill one off.
