Jane Jago’s Daily Drabble – One Hundred and Forty-Three

Everyone said Sal was crazy taking in a critter she found scavenging in the bins, and nobody ever trusted that dawg one bit.

Then little Lacey Portman went missing – while Injun Joe the tracker was out of town.

Nobody knew what to do, but Sal says why not give Coyote a try. 

Lacey’s momma fetched her teddy bear and Coyote had him a long sniff.

We was surprised when he headed back into town with his nose down and his tail high.

Everybody knew lawyer Smithson loved little kids. We just never knew how much.

Now Coyote is a hero…
