“I’ve been waiting for you.”
Heart pounding, she glanced around. Her peripheral vision caught sight of a rabbit near the fence.
“It’s going to be a bad storm.”
Her mind raced. Was it her imagination, the wind, or the rabbit talking to her?
“Tell me something I don’t already know!”
Pain ripped through her body when the cow hit her.
“Got any wise words now, rabbit?” She screamed as consciousness slipped away.
“Help’s coming,” were the last words she heard from…
Animals, both domestic and wild, have a lot to say if you allow them to. They are more than capable of telling the weather by their actions. Their ability to know danger is uncanny. Yet, we humans try our darnedest to outsmart them.
There is no refuting that animals have and can save lives. Do they talk to people while becoming a hero in their own right? I would say that depends on the person, but I would also say, keep your mind open.
On a side note, this 99 word story is another one of those that started out with the mind going rampant with way too many words, 270 of them to be exact. Will the residual become something else? I guess we’ll have to wait to see who or what speaks to me next.
