This is my first ever attempt at Mondays finish the story. In this challenge you are asked to write a piece of flash fiction of between 100 and 150 words that go with the picture.
The picture we were given was this:
and the first line that the story was: “Now, this is the life of Riley.”
This is my story:
“Now, this is living the life of Riley.”
Ruffle stretched lazily along her blue pillow when she heard the words. It was a gift to symbolise the fact that the heating had been turned on.
Ruffle really enjoyed this time of year, because there was usually a fire lit during those long cold evenings. The ones where the weather seemed to bash at the windows. This usually meant that she was not put outside, but instead her litter tray was brought in.
All she needed now, was for her human to put food right here so she didn’t have to move.
Now, that would be living the life of Riley.
