Friday Fictioneers – Natural Instincts


She was so mad at him. Now they were stuck, in the middle of nowhere, with no food and just one bottle of water. And the next rail station was forty miles ahead.

“I don’t care what you see out an open door,” she yelled, “even if it’s going slow, you don’t jump off a moving train!” She turned and looked down at her traveling partner, “You have plenty of birds to chase at home! Why here?” And she turned back around to keep walking.

  1. Great story! I agree with Sandra; you’ve really captured the demeanor of the dog. Poor thing has been severely chastised for merely following his instincts. But he’s lucky she loves him, and jumped off the train to stay with him.

  2. This is one of my favorites this week. Our neighbor’s dog, Maggie, skinned herself up jumping from a moving 4-wheeler because of a rabbit. You nailed the “scolded dog” attitude with this one. Well done.
