What she saw…

A short story for Sadje’s What Do You See? photo prompt.



‘One Day My Prince Will Come’ they played as she strolled past the bandstand.  

Is today the day my prince will come? 

She meandered between beds of nodding flowers.

Is this a sign?

He was handsome and his puppy, really cute.  He smiled enchantingly and she smiled sweetly in return.

Is this him?

“Hi,” he said. 

“Hello,” said she.

She gazed into his glinting eyes. He gazed into hers.

Is he my prince?

The puppy tilted its head to one side.

“He likes you,” he said.

“What’s its name?” she asked.

“Prince,” he said.

    Your Prince is absolutely gorgeous. We have a black lab most of the time, but in the sun he’s brown. Go figure! He’s a good dog, but he’s getting old… very sad! Why do we have to out live our pets? I wish they’d live as long as we do. 😦 Have a good day!

    Cuteness overload.
    Mush, magic; and animal communication (will write about that some day)

    This tale was a breath of refreshing air, and that too on my anniversary weekend!😍😍
