ABC Drabbles of Death - T is for Tiger
We reach the letter 'T' in the ABC Drabbles of Death series and I'll confess that I had some trouble picking a suitable word. My initial ideas were all too obvious and then I remembered one of my favourite Stephen King short stories :-)
If you want to read the previous drabbles in this series then you'll find them all here:
T is for Tiger
I didn’t expect to see a giant carnivorous cat when I walked into my front room.
Well you wouldn’t would you?
Its handsome fur gleamed in the light and the sight captivated me. It didn’t seem to mind so I walked in. It looked up as I entered and with orange eyes pondered my insignificance.
Strangely I felt no fear, not then. The puzzle of why such a magnificent beast waited for me occupied my thoughts. I’ve never been a cat person, but with a roar it let me know that it was a people cat.
Then I knew fear.
