Forging ahead with fictional endeavours: ~ Write a life on a page and hurry not to its grave; abhor not the coming age, for eternal is the next page. ~ Read what you will, I hope you will enjoy reading as much as I do writing.



This one’s for Friday Fictioneers.  Olivia featured earlier in ‘Typo‘.

Olivia ignored the beaten stray trailing along behind her. Some scraps, and she was forever loyal. Olivia had other concerns. Ever since ‘the incident’ local kids had taken to vandalising her property. She came to an abrupt halt as her precious home came into view. Fists trembled as nails bit into palms. Little Bastards! There they were… Egging her door! The stray sprang past, chasing the vandals off with ferocious snarls. Shrieks satisfied her ears. The stray sat down on her door-step with a sense of entitlement. “All right, Willa, you can stay.”


Comments on: "Willa" (15)

  1. I reckon Willa knew exactly what he/she(?) was doing. Do the human a favour, get fed!

  2. Not sure I could resist a stray 😀 Great short piece!

  3. Just goes to show that animals know exactly who has been nice to them. After all, a dog is a man’s/woman’s best friend 🙂

  4. Little bastards. The usually start small!

    • Yes, it’s a learned behaviour. There’s a lot to be said for communal education (children hang around with relatives, parents friends, or respected individuals when not with parents.) if they are old enough to vandalise, they are old enough to learn consequences.

  5. Hope Olivia goes back for the Underwood. 🙂
    Three cheers for Willa.

  6. Aw.. That’s a good guard dog!

  7. Excellent story – good dog Willa! That’s why I love dogs so much – they are loyal through thick and thin! Nan

  8. Glad you liked my blog post. I teach British lit–currently we are studying Victorian novels–trying to enlighten my students to a broader world.
