"The Zoo (Part 6)" a freewrite tale

in freewrite •  18 days ago

He always thought the man and dog were very ill suited, but perhaps the opposite natures kept them both grounded in some way. He nodded. Rungis' smile disappeared and he clicked his fingers. Mr Broom fell into the sand and the bouncing dog began to bounce further.

"Oh yes," he said. "He will come and join us."
