99 word prompt : sound

August 3, 2017 prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) use sound to create a story. Just as you might “see” a scene unfold, think about how it might sound. Even one sound to set the tone is okay. Go where you hear the prompt lead. Feel free to experiment.

Dingo Mutt

I awake on a moonless night, eyes open, trying to make sense of the darkness.  I close them again and, for some inexplicable reason, this helps.

My dogs have their favorite places to sleep.  White dog, tight against my body, whines when I move. Dingo, who likes to sleep against the bathroom door, snores peacefully.  I take exactly 9 steps toward the sound, stopping just short of Dingo’s snout.  His hot breath bathes my feet, as he continues to snore.  Turning the door knob startles him.  My bladder reacts when he yelps.

I hate cleaning pee off the floor.
