Week 19: Rooftop Rendezvous By Aidan

I was on the tallest house in town. I had done this before so surely I could do it again. I took a step back and leaped… I made it again.

I kept on walking on until I saw Bruce up to his usual shenanigans. I saw him go through a window of a house and come out with a necklace.

The rotten filthy old cat.

When he had left I kept on walking then I came to the washing line. I took a gulp and walked across. Finally I got to the meeting point but there was nobody there. I thought I saw something. It came down the drainpipe.  I looked forwards and saw a dog!

What would I do now?

  1. Hi Aidan!

    You surely made me go take a look in the dictionary as I had never heard such expressive ways of talking, as the musical word “shenanigans” and the somehow squeezy word “filthy”.
    Ok, now I can try to follow the thread of this suggestive episode: I’m wondering if Bruce is really a cat, and if he has just stolen a necklace, then you could try to find a way to engage a conversation with the dog.
    How come did he came down a drainpipe perhaps is not so important after all; it may suggest he is some kind of small dog, or even that he loves practicing parkour as you do yourself, leaping from the tallest house in town!
    What an amazing story!

  2. Firstly, Aidan I love the word ‘shenanigans’! I think your story (and title) are wonderful and you have really impressed me with your clever choice of words. Keep up the fantastic writing and I will look forward to reading more of your stories.

  3. Loving this story. Well done Aidan.
    I’m wondering are you, like Bruce, a cat?
    If so, I can see why a dog might pose a problem for you!
    Super work.

  4. What a great use of the prompt. I particularly like your title Aidan – great use of Alliteration!
