Here’s my second attempt at flash fiction with Carrot Ranch! This week’s prompt was inspired by Charli’s furbaby Bobo, who recently crossed the rainbow bridge. Originally, I wanted to write some form of tribute to Bobo, but my first draft proved that I would not be able to capture the emotions as well as Charli already had in her piece—please go and read it.
