Flash Fiction for the Purposeful Practitioner: Week #6 – 2016
“Are we almost there?” Meg inquired. “It’s getting dark.”
Ethan smiled and said, “yes, it is only a mile away.”
“Are you sure I’m going to love it?”
“Absolutely, darling, it’s perfect!”
“I can see it now. It looks so cute and comfortable,” Meg said with excitement.
“I had the caretaker open it up and get it ready for us. While you go in the cabin, I’ll get our suitcases out of the car.”
Meg entered a narrow, unlit hallway and walked toward what appeared as a living-room. She entered the room, looked to the right, and her body seemed to freeze. She could not move!
Meg’s energy whooshed out of her as she stared at the reindeer’s head,
Ethan entered the room and noticed how pale her face looked and her stiff body.
“Oh! Meg, I’m so terrible sorry! I distinctly requested a cabin that did not have any animal heads displayed.”
“You know how I feel about the killing of animals and displaying them.”
Ethan promptly removed the reindeer and had it replaced with a beautiful picture.
