Maximum City – The Pigeon Hole Principle

with 18 comments

The flat she’d moved in was semi-furnished which meant there was no air-conditioning. To beat the heat, she opened the window. She was busy unpacking. She heard a flutter.

With trepidation, it rapidly moved its eyelids and stood motionless in a corner. She was enamored by it.

Residents hated the creature.
She befriended them effortlessly.

    • Frankly speaking, I haven’t read Dork still but the narrative is very tongue in cheek and as matter of fact. It does happen like that I guess.
