Written for Flash Fiction for the Purposeful Practitioner: Week #7 – 2016

The opening sentence for the February 12th, Flash Fiction for the Purposeful Practitioner:

“……. For the thousandth time, I promise you, it wasn’t me!”

As I opened the door to enter the shed where I put my new pup to sleep last night so he wouldn’t wander during the night and get lost.

I could see something had gone terribly wrong, there was puppy sitting there looking at me hoping I would believe him I don’t know that it was “For the thousandth time, I promise you, it wasn’t me!” time but for certain he was begging me to believe him.

What could have created a mess like this bags, boxes you name it, it was everywhere.

So I started to clean it up, moving things from the corner, what should dive out? a possum, it frighten the living daylight’s out of me, no wonder there was such a mess, what had been going on?

Yes, I believe you, poor puppy, going through all that torment with a possum or was it fun.

Farmers don’t keep dogs in the house especially pups, can you imagine the mess, dirty muddy feet all over the furniture and carpets, plus many other reasons.

  1. Yes, it’s surprising the mess a possum can do, so couldn’t have that beautiful puppy blamed for all the mess, so why not include something that is consider a pest in my eyes, I remember one, in my younger days getting into the wash house that had the door left open, so there was no problem blaming it.


    • Thanks for reading. This is my third “Flash Fiction” I have written, it’s becoming a habit, enjoy it very much, only sometimes it’s hard to get the story as you would like it with only 200 words.
      Hope you are having a great Valentine Day.

      • Oh,Valentine’s Day … It’s not an original custom here in Germany. It gets promoted by shops here, but a lot of people don’t really care about it. Well, as you notice I am /we are one of them. More important is the anniversary of the wedding / engagement / start of being together officially…
