This week’s Flash Fiction Challenge from Charli Mills is all about TOOLS. Be sure to hang out at the Carrot Ranch for interesting prompts, people, poetry, and prose! But in the meantime, I thank you for checking out my contribution.

Freddie and Remington sat patiently as their eyes followed Bryan’s every move. It was no secret what was going on in their heads.

Completely aware of his audience, Bryan knew he could get the job done quicker if he’d just go out and buy a leaf blower but he enjoyed the effort it took to rake the leaves into big piles.

As the piles grew, so did the dogs’ eyes. And tails swished slowly.

When Bryan sat to have lunch. the two hungry pups practically flew into the piles. He laughed as they surfaced with mouths filled with leaves!
