“What’s happened Joe?”

“Not sure mate. Someone says the idiot in the car wouldn’t slow down. Seems he hit the old ewe, Matilda. You know, her with the dodgy back legs. She never stood a chance.”

“Then what? I just heard the screams. That’s when I started running.”

“Seems the driver leant out of the car screaming at everyone to get out of his way. Started honking his horn. There was panic. That’s when that fiery young lamb, Jake leapt at him and tore off his arm. Blood everywhere.”

“What now Joe?”

“Don’t know mate. Best we just keep running.”

  1. One of the great aspects I love about your writing is your ‘perspective taking’. In this case it changes everything in the picture and makes story really entertaining. Again, thank you.

I look forward to reading your comments
