Fandangos flash fiction challenge

Come on Polly, Maria said cheerfully. Lets go for a walk.

Maria loved walking early in the morning, just when the sun was coming up.

Her dog Polly was always ready for a run.

Maria was planning on riding her bike, after she’d walked around the park a few times.

The park was empty. Not a sound, or a person to be seen.

Maria clipped Polly’s leash on and they began to walk.

She was lost in thought, when suddenly she heard a rustling noise.

She jumped and Polly pricked up her ears.

What is it, Polly, she said.

Just as Maria was about to start running she saw it.

A beautiful bird, high up in the trees.

She quickly took out her I-phone to snap a photo.

Then taking Polly’s leash in her hand, she said, Polly, lets go.

And together they ran back to where her bike was parked.
