This is written for a flash fiction challenge over at Carrot Ranch. The prompt this week is to write in 99 words (no more, no less) about a mouse. It can be real, imagined, electronic or whiskered. Go where the prompt leads!
If you’d like to join us please follow my link to the ranch. Would love to see you there. We have lots of fun.
She was a tiny little woman with whiskery gray hair. At times she’d be talking to you and her little pink nose would rapidly twitch. Much like that of a rodent smelling something good to eat. Speaking of eating, sunflower seeds were always nearby but never an empty shell to be seen. Listening to her talk was quite annoying with her squeaky pitchy little voice. There were some days you would feel a swish of wind go briskly past you, only to find out it was Little Mouse. Yes, that’s what we had nicknamed her. It characterized her perfectly.
