Unknown [flash 91]

Lynn’s Tuesday Picture Prompt

One ordinary morning everything changed. She made the usual breakfast and dressed just the same, feeling stuck in the rhythm of dull day after day. She tidied the house while bemoaning her plight and then realized Kitty must have escaped in the night. Donning a coat, she wandered outside, calling his name–where could he hide? When she got to the gate, it yawned open wide, not locked, but showing her a path of escape. She followed the swish of Kitty’s bold tail, the lure of the unknown lifting her veil.

  3. Peter Rabbit paused along the path to McGregor’s garden, wondering why the gate was wide open. Weeds had sprung up all over, since the last time Peter was there and had to run so fast to escape old man McGregor and his shotgun. Peter smiled, remembering how the birds had implored him to exert himself when his red jacket got caught on the fence as he tried to run away. Now there was no twittering of his bird friends–only silence, and the slow circling of the buzzards overhead.
