Drabble: Gifts


“Oh man, not again.”


“Another dead animal by the door.”

“Eww, that’s sick.”

“They think they’re helping out. You should see how proud they are when they leave it there. I’ll just go throw it away.”

“I’ll never understand you pet people.”

“Yeah, it can be a little gross, but it’s worth it for the love, the loyalty and companionship. Not to mention their adorable antics.”

The priest stood before the altar. He turned to address the people.

"The gods have accepted our sacrifice! The flood will come again, and we shall not go hungry. Let us give thanks.”
