Chapter Seventeen — The Prize

“Explain it to us, Tom,” Mike said. “You lost me with the prize money.”

“After Abbi gave birth, I wanted in too. So, I used your sperm, Mike. More than once, until Dahlia’s pregnancy took.”

Mike’s brows furrowed.

“Everything was going according to plan until her litter was all males. Eight crossbreeds — eight points. It paled compared to your lot. I had no chance of winning.”




Wow! Did you notice that? It was your day flying by. This publication is your place to enjoy stories of 150 words or fewer about plants and people, wild animals and pets, gardens and food, how-to and how-not-to — written to inform and delight. Did I mention humor?
