He snuck in, hoping no-one would notice.
He was clean and presentable, so if challenged, he would use his charm to get himself out of trouble.
The party was in full swing, music, laughter, food.
Oh yeah, the food. He hadn’t eaten for a couple of days, and the smell of sausage rolls, chicken and other tasty morsels wafted across his nostrils.
He weaved in and out of the guests, many acknowledging his presence, but not engaging him in conversation. He was relieved actually, because if they did the hosts were likely to become aware and he’d be thrown out.

As expected, the table was groaning with food. So much for so few, when he knew of many who were starving. His stomach growled, and tentatively he reached for a chicken drumstick.
‘Aw! How cute!’ and suddenly, he was the centre if attention.
Damn.
‘Hey Ali! When did you get a cat?’

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
