DEMON IN DISGUISE (ONE DOG’S VIEWPOINT)

by P.S. Joshi

He thought he found the perfect hiding place.

The dreaded words rang out from Marcie, “Doggie, doggie, doggie.”

Now Boris was that “doggie” and in hiding as usual. He was normally a people-loving dog, but this two-year-old was no ordinary person. She was, in his eyes, an atrocious demon child.

His perfect hiding place behind the living room curtains was not the sanctuary he’d thought. He was almost grabbed by the leg.

Why did the big people think this child was sweet? She was devious. He could have sworn her eyes glowed in the dark. The whole day was spent in finding good places  he wasn’t discovered.

It was only since she’d started walking that she’d become a threat. She seemed to have been a harmless baby. What a disguise, a cover-up.

He could now see through the cuteness, big blue eyes, blond ringlets, dimpled smile. Life for him was a misery. His food dish was the exception.

MURDEROUS  By P.S. Joshi

“They finally made their escape.”

As I wrote that, I dreamed of fame. Maybe I’d be a famous writer someday. I loved to write thriller stories.

The more people I literarily killed, the better. My favorite threat to someone who made me mad was to tell them one day I’d make them a villain in one of my books and shoot them full of holes.

Mom got hold of one of my stories one day and looked at me as though she’d never really seen me before.

“Laura,” she asked, slightly shocked, “how do you come up with this stuff? When I was fifteen I wanted to be a cheerleader and buy new clothes.”

She shook her head. “I just don’t know how a daughter of mine could be interested in killing.”

Just then the phone rang. She listened,  then shouted, “She said ‘that’ about me! I’ll kill her!”
