Description for my blind/visually impaired readers: This is a large, old house with a fence around it and trees.
My mind took me to my Aunt Bobby’s old house in Mound City, Missouri, where we would spend a few weeks over summer when I was a girl. She had a huge back dog named Jet who lived outside. I talked with him and other animals often. The hens let me pull eggs out from under them for our breakfast, and I thought it was magical to do this. I still did when I raised chickens of my own a few years back.
So…this is actually a memoir. Jet really did do what I attribute to hm in this story, and there really was a hen in trouble.
Word count: 100
The Story: Talking to the Dog
“I’m coming,” I called, running to the back door.
Aunt Bobby shaped her pie crust. “What are you doing?”
“Jet says there’s a hen with her foot caught in the fence.”
She gave me that look all grown-up did when they thought I was playing let’s pretend. But the gigantic dog and I talked all the time. He met me at the door.
“Back corner.” His deep voice rumbled in my head.
“Easy, girl,” I assured the hen. Struggling and flapping, she pecked at me, but I got her foot free.
Aunt Bobby stood at the back door, watching.
