I Never Told Anyone

Prompt: I never told anyone...

I never told anyone the reason I got a new phone. Sure, I wove around that fiction that my old one was wearing thin, losing buttons and such, but that wasn’t much of the truth. I was photographing the geese by the lake, trying to capture the light glazing their oily backs, when a set of terriers – three or four by my quick count – scurried past. One brushed against my hip, and I sprang up, throwing my hands in the air in defence. My phone, however, decided that was its moment to fly from my grip.

Splosh. Phone in the lake. It’s probably in the stomach of a goose now.

The End
