The Drabble Day Challenge is a weekly challenge hosted by http://thewriteaholicblog.wordpress.com/ and it involves writing a Drabble (a short story of 100 words, plus or minus 5) based around a particular prompt. This week’s prompt was “SEEK”.
Billy is a GOOD BOY! Billy runs around inside, looking for something that is WRONG. It has been a long time, but Billy doesn’t get tired, Billy is a PROTECTOR!
There, in the corner of this passage, something is WRONG! Billy sniffs it. Billy tastes it. Billy barks! He needs to make sure that MASTER hears; that MASTER knows that something is WRONG.
Billy wraps himself around the growth and, howling, collapses in on it, crushing it.
Throughout the body, all of the other Billys hear their brother’s last howl; then they carry on, seeking out anything that is WRONG.
Billy is a GOOD BOY!
