Motion Sensitive

Post by JanetMermaid » Wed Sep 19, 2018 8:33 am

Hello to all. My husband, Eric Marsh, has long submitted Drabbles. He's always encouraged me to as well, since I am a fiction writer. This morning, thanks to the dogs, I was inspired to write this, my first Drabble submission:

Motion Sensitive

At first she thought a motion-sensitive light in the bedroom was stupid, but it came with the apartment. She shrugged it off. Before long, she’d grown to like it. Whenever she got up in the middle of the night to use the toilet, the light automatically came on for her. No more stubbed toes.

One night, she awoke when the light blinked on. Nothing was there. “Must need maintenance,” she thought.

This happened three nights in a row. On the fourth night, when the light came on, she finally saw why. She’d rather have suffered stubbed toes and darkness.
