Microfiction #Three Line Tales: Run!

For Sonya’s Three Line Tales photo prompt.

Green evening falls on the field, tempting, full of cool grass smells, short, sweet grass, the best kind.

Hiding in the long stalks, I watch and sniff the smells, waiting for the last two-legs to go and the grass to be empty, hunger pinching belly, ears listening, this way, that.

I slip through the dry stalks onto the fresh green nibbling grass, even though ears hear the two-legs shout, because hunger is strong, then ears scream—dog!

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.
