The Escape Plan – Flash Fiction

The following story was written for a challengeRainbow

over at Carrot Ranch. 

February 20, 2020, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less), write a story about a library cat named Rainbow who escapes.

 

 

Rainbow, held captive, couldn’t take this anymore; she had to get out of this library. She’d miss the children who came in that paid attention to her but not the head librarian, who thought she was just a mouser.

Back when people used libraries to borrow books it was more interesting. Nowadays it’s children that come to take art classes.

She had a plan. She’d jump into one of the children’s bags and escape. That afternoon she saw the perfect opportunity and jumped on it only to find out she’d picked the wrong bag … the librarian’s kid’s bag.

  3. I wish our library had a cat! But it is true that there is so much to do at libraries other than just borrow books! I really enjoy our library cafe-book store. 🙂

    • All of our book stores seem to have a cat. Whenever I go in I have to first spend a little time with the cats 🙂

      • The big name chain book stores do not have cats. I’ve been to one used book seller in the city and it was so tight in there I’d be amazed if ten people could have fit at the same time. 🙂
