A Girl And A Dog In The Night(Friday Flash 55)

 




The girl left the house at dusk and the dog joined her. They hunted field mice in the pasture under the eye of the moon. His excitement pleased her. The grass rustled, and the night was warm. He suddenly paused with his nose aquiver and hackles high. The voices from the farmhouse grew distant.




Friday Flash 55 with Mr. Knowitall is back!! If you have a story in 55 words you'd like to tell, visit him here and let him know, or even if you don't, check the link for lots of super shorts.

I'm a little rusty. Hope you didn't mind a walk in the dark with a dog....

TGIF!!!

!! I think one of the scariest things as a child was when I was home alone at night reading a book and my dogs jumped up and GROWLED at something out the window directly behind my head! I was FROZEN for I don't know how long!

Your 55 was so comforting up until the very end... Yikes.

Ooooer dogs can see and hear things we can't - that's worrying! Great writing!

Kind of gives me a chill. I just love how much story one can pack into so few words. Nicely done.

Yvonne Osborne said...

Hey all....that's what the man forces us to do with but 55 words to play with. It leaves everyone hanging. I don't like it,anymore than you:) But still I play, again and again. Thank you for reading and commenting, which makes it worthwhile.
