Fluff Enough
by
Tom B. Taker

“C’mon, dawg. Keep cool.” He offered his paw but a reciprocal gesture was not forthcoming.

“You’re obviously very upset they got past you.”

The reaction was fierce and immediate. “You think? You’re damn right I am! Guarding that trapdoor was my only job and I couldn’t even do that right. I’m a failure.”

The seventh floor of the castle was forbidden yet here they were on its remarkably thin ledge. He tried to concentrate on his opponent rather than looking down, which made him dizzy.

“You jump we jump, remember?”

“Shut up! Both of you!”

“Fluffy bad!” Then they were in the air. Together they fell.

Splat! Crack! Crack! Crack!
