Someone in the Room
Photo prompt @ Sarah Potter
It had intermittently been snowing for three days. He looked at his dog; it was lying near the chair, languid and listless.
Abruptly the dog growled in fear. The fear smelled by the dog was contagious. The old man felt there was someone in the room.
‘But that isn’t possible; the door is locked’.
He froze when he heard a high-pitched scream. He thought someone was peering through the window pane.
‘It’s she, no?’
A dog bite jolted the old man out of his slumber.
“What a nightmare it was?”
For once the old man had lost his trademark impish grin.
