March 25: Flash Fiction Challenge

Charli’s Carrot Ranch Prompt:

March 25 2021, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less), write an escape. It can be daring or subtle. Who is escaping from what and why? Go where the prompt leads!

The Great Escape

I gingerly opened the cage to add the birdseed into the pot. Heer sat there, staring at me with her beady eyes.

She had a tendency to peck, so the faster I could get my hand in and out the better.

Having deposited what I needed to, into the pot, I slammed the door shut, and breathed a sigh of relief and turned to see the cat watching me, or rather watching something behind me.

Somehow the cage door had bounced open again, and Heer had hopped out of the cage!

That great escape was going to end badly!

    Maybe Heer would soon rather be back in the cage, having escaped the cat’s paws and jaws.

    Oh, no! It’s a good day for the cat. I remember that flinching feeling when I used to gather chicken eggs.
