NaNoWriMo Day 7: The Very Best Boy

Day 7

Death stood next to the dog and said, “it’s time to come with me.”

“But my human. What will she do without me?”

“She will be sad for a while”, Death replied.

“I don’t want her to be sad. I want her to play always and be happy.”

“She will grieve for a while, but death is a part of life, and humans must learn to move forward through the sorrow.”

The dog thought about this while Death waited patiently. “Was that my purpose then? To help my girl learn this lesson?”

“No,” Death answered. “Your purpose was to bring joy and love, and you did that very well.”

“Was I a good boy?”

“The very best boy,” said Death.
