Charli Mills enticed us with the prompt of PIGS HAVING WINGS for this week’s Flash Fiction Challenge. Have fun with the fine folks at the Carrot Ranch every week!
Roxanne’s daughter, Tiffany, made a bed in the hay, next to her pet. Angel. The young sow was ill and the Vet said they had done all they could. Kneeling down next to Tiffany, Roxanne covered the crying child with a warm blanket. It seemed like the only comfort she could offer.
“Mama, tell me something. Will Angel go to Heaven when she dies?”
“Honey, I believe she will always be with you because she found Heaven in your heart.”
“So, she’ll be like an Angel, I mean one who watches over me, right?”
“Will she have wings?”
