A Whole Other World…

Cave prompt

Sue’s Underground photo prompt this week for 99 word or fewer pieces, be it prose, poetry, humour… whatever takes your fancy! Check it out here.

It always intrigued me, that little hole… I wandered past it most days, whilst walking my dog.
Not really small enough to be a burrow of any sort, but not big enough to be some sort of manmade cave…
One day Toffee was running on ahead, as he did, and his lead started pulling tight.  His barks grew more and more frantic, so I quickly followed him to see what was up.
As I turned the corner to the mouth of this mini cave, all I saw was the back of a little person, scampering away down the tunnel…

Think I may be channelling a little Enid Blyton here, I have been reading the Fairy Folk to the kids!!!

    Enid Blyton in the making, I agree. 😀 Great little piece of flash fiction that has legs, Ritu.
