Found! (A 79 Word Short Story by Danny the Dog)

The woods are dark, the cabin isolated.

In the distance, a bird cries into the night.

The only light, the fire in the hearth.

Not far off, a twig snaps underfoot.

Someone softly comes my way.

The dread in me rises.

Have I been found?

I am cut off from running; it is too late for that.

In pensive silence, I await my fate.

The door bursts open, Andrew is silhouetted against the stars.

“SURPRISE!”

I so hate birthdays.

  1. So do I, Danny, so do I. What the hell was your human thinking?? At our age, a surprise like that takes a toll! I think you ought to start planning a surprise for Andrew!
