Today’s 100 word Drabble story:

The Boy Who Cried Wolf

The boy cried wolf and the townsfolk gathered.

No wolf was found.

Later it was a fox the boy roared about, then a bear, and then a human.

Then it was the wind, which blew harder on the boy than anyone else.

And the snow.

And the sun which burned him extra hard.

No identifiable predators. Ever.

He garnered a lot of attention, and much doting by the townsfolk.

Then people ignored him.

He screamed and invented great tales of woe, but no one listened.

And one day the townsfolk grew weary of the cries and sewed his mouth shut.
