Six Sentence Stories



Accident prone Catherine was known as Cat to her friends; ‘You’ve got nine lives’ they used to say as she recovered from yet another brush with death.

This time, however, it was somewhat more serious, as a simple slip in her kitchen left her with a dreadful and fatal injury to her head.

‘It’s not over yet’ thought Cat as she passed away.

*

The kitchen window was ajar and a kitten crept through the narrow gap and leapt from the sill to a bench where she carefully picked her way between the pans and brushed against the pots stopping now and then to sniff the still warm contents.

‘I said it wasn’t over’ purred the baby cat at as it licked clean a plate.

  4. What a great story! It reminds me of one of those questions where you are asked if you could live as an animal, what animal would you choose. Hopefully Cat prepared a tasty last (first) meal.
