Saturday Centus...Study In Black

I have been tempted, sorely. I've finally surrendered to that temptation.  I have decided to join in the writing challenge at......

Twenty-five words for Study in Black
The dark was full.
Dad said, “Nothing's there or the dogs will bark.”
My imagination painted images…
nothing there, nothing there...
the dogs growled.

This was clever! I like this one.
I only have cats at home. And they see very well in the dark if there is a little light source from somewhere. And they have good noses, just as good as the dogs...
So take your cat along and see if she growls!
Best wishes,
Anna

Wow. Cool take on this difficult prompt.

I'm not a big fan of the dark. When we used to live waaaaayyyyy, waaaayyyy out in the country where the nighttime looked exactly like that photo...

Let me just say, when the dogs barked at night it really spooked me.

You captured that feeling here so perfectly.

Great writing.
