Friday Fictioneers~ 3/26/21-Known Criminal

Had she not waited for the cover of darkness, her presence in the neighborhood would have brought in the authorities.
She was an easily recognized opportunist.
Cutting patterns close to houses during the winter, was less perilous and more productive, but it took her longer to get home. Pilfering heavy prizes was strictly out of the question.
A motion activated light or two sent her running into the shadows but an open garage door was the perfect find!
She stealthily rummaged awhile then made off with some goods.
Her crisscrossing prints couldn’t possibly be followed.
All coyotes know that.

  1. You made me realise that I do not associate ‘she’ as a thief, but that is illogical on my part. I liked the ending as I sensed a feeling of relief and satisfaction and was reminded of the foxes I often see prowling through the streets at night. Loved the story.

  2. I really like this.

    We don’t have coyotes, but squirrels, rabbits and deer often leave their prints in fresh snow. Right up close to the house.

Tell me something good...
