Short Stories

Mice

Scratching in the wall. Don’t worry, you say. The dog will get it. I look at your elderly companion. I wonder. Perhaps you have over-estimated his abilities? No, you say. He will come through. Except, he doesn’t. He tried. He failed. You never said anything, just turned up the volume.

This is a fifty word story for the weekly writing challenge – fifty.
