Something to Eat for Blogophilia 31.4


I recently took a flash fiction class on line.

This assignment was death in 250 words.

Original

Something to Eat

I’ll  crawl in here and get warm. It sure is cold outside. Well it’s dark and I’m hungry; let’s see what I can find to eat. Oh look at this! It’s not food but it’s soft and warm and I’m still cold. Whoa it’s huge! Maybe I can rip it and use it as a cover to keep warm. My front teeth should work to cut it. Have to do it again that piece was way too small. Ah, there you go. Perfect! I’ll just take a nap and look for something to eat later.

Oh it feels  good to stretch– pretty cramped in there. That blanket is all shredded up now. Something smells good. Have to find it. I think it’s coming from above me someplace. That looks like a pipe I can climb up and see what’s there. It’s steep; my breathing sounds like an airplane motor.  Now the smell is all around me. And seems to be coming from that box! Yummy! That was good .Next I want to go back down to where my blanket is. The entranceway I used to get in here is closed. How do I get out? I can’t breathe– there’s no air in here. I don’t feel so good…

“Look the trap is closed. And I just shook it and feels like the mouse took the bait.”

“Good then take it outside and dump him away from the house. Hopefully there aren’t any babies hiding around in the cupboards or walls.”

 Something to Eat

I’ll crawl in here and get warm. It smells like Baby’s breath. It sure is cold outside. Well it’s dark and I’m hungry; let’s see what I can find to eat. I see something shiny. All that glitters may not be gold but it could be a rhinestone.  Oh look at this! It’s not food but it’s soft and warm and I’m still cold. Whoa it’s huge! Maybe I can rip it and use it as a cover to keep warm. My front teeth should work to cut it. Have to do it again that piece was way too small. Ah, there you go. Perfect! I’ll just take a nap and look for something to eat later.

Oh it feels good to stretch– pretty cramped in there. Oh what a day this has been. That blanket is all shredded up now. Something smells good. Like a buttercup or peanut butter cup even.  Have to find it. I think it’s coming from above me someplace. That looks like a pipe I can climb up and see what’s there. It’s steep; my breathing sounds like an airplane motor.  Now the smell is all around me. And seems to be coming from that box! Yummy! That was good .Next I want to go back down to where my blanket is.  Phlox you. The entranceway I used to get in here is closed. How do I get out?  My tulips are stuck. I can’t breathe– there’s no air in here. I don’t feel so good….. no more capers for me…..

“Look the trap is closed. And I just shook it and feels like the mouse took the bait.”

Yucca! Don’t show it to me! Just take it outside and dump him away from the house. Hopefully there aren’t any babies hiding around in the cupboards or walls.”
