Excerpt From Misery’s Mishap (Animal Tales)
This short story is based upon actual real events; names have been changed to protect the innocent.
Scene One: Gibraltar. Current Date and Time: May 2nd 2014. 14.02.43
DDI (Doggy Detective Inspector) Pip here, investigating the scene of what was reported to be a major disturbance in the area yesterday around about mid-day or thereafter and near the old military bastion that has not been in use for quite some time now.
I don’t like disturbances out here on, The Rock and it is my job to make sure trouble is cleaned up and order is kept, if you get my meaning.
A constable comes up to DCI Pip, “Nothing here sir, we’ve searched everywhere.”
“Alright son. Listen up, I know you don’t get much excitement out here on, The Rock, but tell the lads to keep a tight one on this at the moment, OK? It just won’t do to have unseemly gossip floating back over to mainland, Spain and god knows where else across the bloody continent from there. We don’t want it attracting the wrong sorts. Comprende?”
“Yes sir…Will do sir.”
I’ve had my team search the area thoroughly with a fine, toothed-comb and so far they have found nothing untoward.
…time to make some enquiries.
A delightful collection of short stories and poetry, most of which were inspired by real life events and animals.
