FFfAW Challenge – 180th

Our 180th challenge!

Isn’t this little chap a cutie? Thanks Yinglan

‘Excuse me,’ said a little voice.
Esme looked around and saw no-one.
‘Over here. On the glass stand.’
All she could see was a small porcelain figure of a dog stuck in a doughnut.
‘Yes, that’s me.’ It said.
‘Er, hello?”
‘I wonder if you’d be so kind as to give me a hand.’
‘Um, sure. What can I do?’
‘It was the sprinkles that did it. I love sprinkles, but they seem to have ganged up on me somewhat and trapped me within, sotospeak.’
‘But you’re a figurine, how…………’
‘Yes, yes, I know. But I really need to get out of here. I’m supposed to be on a diet and there’ll be hell to pay if I’m caught in this predicament. Can you grab a paw……….. ‘
‘DON’T YOU DARE TOUCH THAT!’ boomed a voice.
Esme jumped, nearly knocking the glass stand flying.
An old lady hurried across and explained her husband had been toying with customers as they browsed.
She chuckled.
‘Henry! Get yourself out here!! You’ve scared the poor lass half to death!’

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination 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! 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 now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.
