Fifty Word Story -A Merciful Thief

Drawing by megaeggz



In the snow, the fox trots towards the den where his love waits. He quickens his pace.

A hunter aims his rifle at the oblivious fox; recalling his wife’s pleas for him to stop. Laughing, he pulls the trigger. It clicks; empty chamber.

Ah, hell, you stole my bullets, Amber!

  1. Yay! A happy ending. I’m glad the fox made it in the end. I’m not a huge fan of hunting at the best of times and I worry about someone who would laugh as he tried to kill any poor defenseless creature that wasn’t a mosquito.
