Microfiction challenge #24: Moonlit night

This week’s painting is by Iliya Repin.
You can read Jane’s original post here:

moonlit-nightIt was all arranged, a time and place to meet.
Of course I couldn’t go alone, but having company wasn’t a problem as we always went for a walk along the stream in the evening.
It was clear tonight, the moon reflecting on the water in silvery waves.
The waiting was the worst.
Would they come?
Then the next hurdle, would we be suitable?
Hell, would we even like each other!
Patience was never one of my virtues, but this was important, so when I saw movement in the distance, I got myself ready, wanting to look my best.

Oh wow. She was gorgeous.
She seemed eager to meet me, wagging her tail and straining at the leash.
Our owners looked at each other and smiled, acknowledging the beginning of a special relationship.
And us? Yep, we were going to make such beautiful puppies together!


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and have a terrible sweet tooth. Best friends are Hubby, our dog Maggie, Bro in NZ, MSM and MOH (and his dog). I am also a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we were once again house hunting until September. We now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.
