The Best Friend

© Dawn Q. Landau

This is the path that you used to take for school every day and I used to walk behind, guarding you and watching every step of yours. I would bark when the train was approaching to alert you much ahead of time, so that you don’t panic when the giant beast passed by. I loved you so much my master that it is now hard to believe that you are no longer here and that we will never walk this way together. But your thoughts would never be forgotten. I shall take this route every single day until I’m around.

This five sentence fiction is written for the topic 'Forgotten' at Lillie McFerrin Writes.

This drabble (100 word fiction) is written for Friday Fictioneers, 27th February 2015.

  3. Very sweet. Dogs are truly best friends and ever so loyal.

  4. Ahh so sweet... A man's best friend indeed!

  5. that was just so touching, reminded me of the movie 'Hachi: A Dog's Tale'

  6. Oh so endearing, so touching, so tender, so sweet! It almost makes me want to cry this man's best friend! <3

    Sad and sweet story from the Dog's point of view.
