Flash Fiction

Just Following Orders

Its big eyes just stared unblinking for a minute. “What do you call yourself?” the Fawn said at last.

Its tone surprised me. Such a soft sweet voice it had! Oozed like honey. Regret briefly crossed my mind. I pushed it back. “Doesn’t matter.” I replied. “I’m just following orders.”
