Flash Fiction (Mice)

This week’s challenge from Carrot Ranch gave me the shivers!

*There may or may not have been an incident in a sandy location where a certain briefer may or may not have sat in the office with her feet up on a chair because she saw mice running around. Just sayin’.

 

“Guys listen up. This is the pre-mission briefing for flight 7044.” 

She went quickly but thoroughly over the slides. Tanker crews liked fast and funny.  No jokes today though, this was a new mission and she needed to keep their focus. 

To the great surprise of the pilots she suddenly stopped in mid-sentence and jumped onto a chair.  The entire room silently watched a mouse scamper across the floor and under the canvas wall.

The Lieutenant climbed down and resumed briefing the astonished pilots, picking right back up in the middle of her sentence. She had their full attention.
