Five Sentence Fiction - Conquer

Lillie's word for this week's Five Sentence Fiction is CONQUER.

It took me a while to decide where to take this one but I finally came up with this tale inspired by a true life event, which I may explain tomorrow if time allows...

Man or Mouse?
Some fears are irrational but that doesn’t stop them holding us to ransom.

Take for example the mouse problem, Penny would scream hysterically every time we saw it scuttling across the kitchen floor.

I laughed at her from the start, told her it was so tiny it had to be more scared of her.

“But you should do something about it; you’re the man of the house.”

So I bought a trap and I’ve caught the blessed thing, now I just have to conquer my own fears and set it free. 


  1. Ah, the things we expect from our other halves!

  2. Yes, we conquer things for those we love...for love.

  3. Ah. He sets it free. You can do that when you don't use a glue trap. Capture it. Put it in the back yard. Let the outside cats of the neighborhood deal with it.
