The wild, wanton wake of destruction stared back as she felt her blood boil.

Turning on them, she bellowed, ‘Who dunnit?’

Three tails drooped without an answer.

This is so cute! I love how it turned around from beginning to end. I thought maybe she was trapped or something at first.

JannaTWrites · April 7, 2014 at 9:30 pm

Haha… love the image of instant guilt brought about by her question!

kaymetviner · April 8, 2014 at 12:11 am

I thought there was going to be some serious threats or violence at the beginning – great turnaround!

tnkerr · April 8, 2014 at 12:13 am

You know my dogs! This one had me coming and going. Well done!

Thank you so much, Swathi!!

Shailaja V · April 9, 2014 at 4:58 pm

Thank you Jen! I was wondering how I could convey it without mentioning the word 'dogs'. Had to edit it a few times to get the word count down!

Shailaja V · April 9, 2014 at 4:59 pm

You should have seen the room 😉

Shailaja V · April 9, 2014 at 5:03 pm

Oh, you obviously haven't seen me when I am in rage 😉

Shailaja V · April 9, 2014 at 5:04 pm

Ha ha.. I hope I did justice to them darlings then 🙂

Cute? You've never had your clothes eaten by a dog, have you? 😉
