Friday 55 Flash Fiction # 135 Bounty.......



Unaware he was watching as she dug the hole to bury her bounty.



She filled in the hole, raking earth over the top, trying to make it look as though it hadn’t been disturbed.



He waited, until all was quiet, before retrieving the bounty.



“That bloody squirrel’s dug up my spring bulbs again!” she cried.



This is not fiction the bloody squirrel got MY Spring bulbs the day after I put them in!



Friday 55 Flash Fiction is brought to you by G-man (Mr Knowitall). The idea is you write a story in exactly 55 words. If you want to take part pop over and let G-man know when you've posted your 55.
