Birthday Mice

mice Twitter prompt response

Mice devour secrets in tiny bites, sweet bitter mouthfuls too strong for words. Memories fade and whisp away beneath their paws and knowing eyes. So feed your bodies to rats and pigs, but always tell your nightmares to the mice.


@casskhaw asked for folks to write #microfiction for their Twitter followers to celebrate her birthday, but alas it was a workday so I couldn’t join the fun. So I wrote this small bit of fic instead!
