Emma felt sleepy. Her Father was out for a walk with Pucnut , her pet Labrador. Emma made her bed and crashed. She was fast asleep.
She didn’t know the time but after a while, she was awakened by Pucnut.
“What is it Puccy?” She said in a drowsy voice.
Pucnut jumped and made himself comfortable in Emma’s blanket.
Emma waved her hand across his soft fur and both of them slept soundly.
The next morning Emma woke up to find Pucnut already up. He was sitting in the corner of the room seemingly a bit scared.
Emma sat upright and spread her arms Pucnut rushed and licked Emma, as she embraced him.
“Emma!” Called her Father.
Emma went downstairs. She found her Father looking at her sadly.
“Dad everything's alright?”
“There is something I want to tell you dear.”
“Sure, tell me.”
“Last night I took Pucnut for a walk, there he was hit by a pickup truck and unfortunately…”
Emma didn’t speak a word ,she rushed up stairs. Got into her room. Couldn’t find Pucnut.
She turned to go downstairs when she noticed something in the mirror.
In the mirror she could see Pucnut sitting in the corner, and on her face where he licked her in the morning…
There was blood.
