I begged until he released me. He warned a nightmare if I didn’t return. I ran to the loo, peed, then, true to my word, went back to sleep.
Until you woke in damp sheets and realized that it was all part of the dream!
Ha ha. Keep ’em coming
Hah! Exactly, Ben. Thanks so much for reading.
Von, this made me smile! Thank you!
That’s a fun read. In such a short space: great work.
Von, this is cute. It would seem the older I get the fewer threats I get. The Sandman must be getting used to me by now.
Thanks, Deb, it was fun writing it…in the middle of the night.
We’ve all been in that situation, Von! Good idea for a quick story you can capture in so few words. Well done.
Thanks for introducing me to 140 fiction, Rose.
LOL – LIke a master, Von! Let the reader beware for making any assumptions about the story behind the story!
The nightmare being a wet bed, I imagine 😉 Been there, done that! Those 3 AM pees are never fun, but oh so necessary sometimes. Great job, Von!! ~Mysti
Thanks Judy and Mysti! Oh God, those 8 AM pees really do suck. I’m so glad the story, dare I say, resonated.
Kat, thanks so much for reading it. And I’m glad it made you smile–my sense of humor can be odd at times. 😉 I’ll have to post a 140 prompt in the cafe at F2K.
LOL! Tom! I’ll have to remember that. You should give 140 a try. With your wit, you’d do great.
Nice one, Von! 140 characters ain’t easy.
Thank you, Milo. They are great fun to play around with. There ARE some 140 geniuses out there. Most of mine end up balled up and tossed. This one escaped.
I enjoyed this nice little short, Von. Fun stuff, good work.
