What follows is my week's story for "jumping off places" hosted by Linda at atticreflections.blogspot.com. Hope you enjoy.
The view outside the window had been gray for days. At least it seemed that way. She gazed at the soft green carpet that had appeared almost overnight. She had watched from her little window every day, waiting for the cold and white cover on the ground to melt away. She knew it marked the end of her imprisonment.
It wouldn’t be long now. The flowers were poking their lazy heads through the once hardened ground. Gray or not, It was spring and her spirits were soaring. Oh, when, would her sought after release come? It couldn’t be long now; she had done her time.
The sun peeked from behind the clouds. Someone was coming. Could it be time? She heard some keys rattle in the distance. Oh happy day, it was time. She felt like jumping for joy. Never again would she do the things that had confined her. She would be a boon to society.
“C’mon Maddy” He said. “It’s a nice day, lets go to the dog park.”
