Thought I’d do another 100 word flash fiction piece.
As ever, I’m not going to say much about it – mainly because any description would probably be as long as the story itself… – but it features a couple of characters from my novel Sleep No More.
I was awakened by the sunlight streaming through the window.
Stretching long and hard, I felt a slight weight on my feet. The bundle of fur stirred, then demonstrated his own morning stretch.
“One minute, Harry.”
He sauntered up to my pillow, then sat expectantly.
“One minute, Harry!”
I lay back, trying to gather my thoughts for the day.
I threw off the covers and got out of bed, knowing who’d be getting their breakfast first this morning. I trundled over and opened the door, ready to let Harry downstairs.
He’d gone back to sleep.
