“Just Like Old Times”

PHOTO PROMPT © Penny Gadd

The hunted winced as he tried to remove the blood crusted brick red gauze from his gunshot foot. Easing his foot into the cool creek water, the current softened the dried blood, allowing the removal of the bandage. Some of the pain subsided. Minnows darted at the suspended cotton fibers and coagulated blood particles in the water.

“I’m gunna get you Wabbit”!!!

“This guy is serious” thought Bugs as he hunkered down.

    Haha, that ending made me grin. I’m sure Bugs will get the better of the hunter eventually, like always. Even better because the beginning was such a well described moment of pain and fear.

      I love your optimism 😉. No doubt beyond that contagious grin, his resilience was an under appreciated trait. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. ✌️
