Meddle, Hideous, Ambush

Three Word Wednesday Writing Prompt

Why did the busybody have to meddle?
T'wasn't her business, now was it?
Scrawny, stringy, skinny old woman!
She'll be the next one, mark my words.
Hang the hideous hag; I'll strangle her...
Somehow, I'll catch her all by herself.
Naught but a bag o bones, she is. I'll pulverize
her...I will.
There she is now,
All alone.
It's dark.
Nobody watching, not even the moon.

Gotcha, you sneaky, little spy...
You slimy rat.
Scream, would ya?
Go ahead and try with my hands around your naked neck.
It's dark; nobody will see a thing.
It's quiet. Can't hear anybody, can ya?
I can't either. Can't hear a thing...
Ah there's the moon now--prying thing.
But not a problem; this won't take long.

Ach? What's tha--
Nobody said anything 'bout a big, black brute of a dog
And how was a body to see im in this fog?

Back off, boy, I'm not moving...
See, I'm on the ground now, no threat.
You can take your fangs out of my neck so I can explain things to those
Red and blue so piercing lights.
She's probably filling them with all kinds of lies.
I hear them now, walking this way.

"Come along, Ambush. Mommy's all right now. Let these nice gentlemen take care of that horrid man."

That's it. Release me gently, vicious cur!
And they're calling her the brave one...
What's fair about that?


  1. Yikes - scary good! What an awesome name for a dog - Ambush. Now I want to go out and buy myself a big dog just so I can name him that LOL

  2. I've thought the same many times...but usually when it's been about children...and you just can't have enough for all the names.

  3. Sharply, edged this tale. Creepy good.

  4. Good doggy and a fun tale, but who is braver ;)
