hundred word wednesday – “ritual”

In Hundred Word Wednesdays on June 1, 2011 at 1:29 pm

Here’s another story for you all, about a love that thrives in disgusting circumstances.

It was a little ritual they had. Each day at sunset, they played fetch. Eventually, Franklin Delano got tired and began to sniff around the yard. John watched from the deck, enjoying his favorite part of the day.

There was always some small anxiety lurking in the back of his mind, though. A few times a month, Franklin found an old pile of his own shit, sniffed it excitedly, and gobbled it down.

Though he never enjoyed brushing FDR’s teeth afterwards, it was a labor of love. Within an hour, John was on the couch, Franklin sleeping atop his chest.
