Gazing west, she spotted a coyote heading towards the front porch, in search of cat food. An owl called out in greeting, softly hooting. A man in dark clothing was quietly walking down the road in front of the house, stopping when he noticed the coyote. The coyote's ears perked up as he sniffed the air and turned to stare at the man.
The guy who lived in the house chose that very moment to turn on the porch-light as he opened the door to go out for a cigarette. The coyote ran away, the dark man froze to avoid being spotted, and the alien child laughed at the scene before her. (146)
Thank you, Lisa, for choosing one of my pictures for the prompt this week! I'm not sure that I have enough there for a book, but it was a fun little story to write.
I am participating in Lisa's Book Blurb Friday, from over at Writing in the Buff. It is fun, and you can play too! Pretend that the picture on the top of this post is the cover of a book. On the inside jacket, you have 150 words to entice the reader to buy your book. Lisa gives us a week to think about next week's entry (she's gracious like that). Please CLICK HERE on Friday to read what everybody else wrote. To see my other BBF stories, please locate them on the left hand sidebar under the Book Blurb Friday button.
