I’m smothered by paws and tongue- sixty pounds of Labrador greets me. I nudge her away. I need to unload my briefcase, shed my tie and unwind. Can’t I have just five minutes?
I’ve waited all day. Scratch behind my ears! Ooh, I love you! He ignores me. I follow him to the bedroom. I bark. Can’t he see I’m hungry? He talks to the cat.
I yawn and stretch; can’t sleep with all that noise. Oh. He’s back. I guess I could use more food. He says something to me. I meow… too tired to lift my head.
This weekend, we return to the 33-word prompt, but this time, a 33-word prompt with a twist. Your task, should you choose to accept, is to take a scene that involves (or affects) at least three people. You should then write this scene from the point of view of three of the characters, using 33 words for each character. So for example, if your story involves a mother, a father and a young boy, you will tell the story first from the point of view of the mother (in 33 words), then the same story from the point of view of the father (in 33 words) and finally, from the point of view of the boy (also in 33 words).
