I discovered this writing prompt from Sammi Scribbles and thought it would be fun to take part.

The Ultimatum

It was her or the dog.

Buster had been with me from a puppy. I’d only known Sarah for three months.

I knew Buster could be a handful, but he was part of the family.

Then again, I loved Sarah so much.

I went upstairs to pack.

‘Your bags are in the hall!’ I shouted as I took Buster for his walk.


I’d love to read your stories/poems. Leave a link in the comments. 🙂
