Jane Jago’s Daily Drabble – Two Hundred and Fifty-Six

Miss Mawdsleigh taught art. At an all-girls school. And if that wasn’t soul-destroying enough, she lived at ‘home’ with her overbearingly genteel mother and a white Pekingese dog.

Every Saturday morning she took Pekoe to the dog parlour for his shampoo and grooming. 

If the weather was inclement she waited, otherwise she took a brisk walk in the park.

On this particular Saturday she left Pekoe as usual. But she never came back for him

By the time anybody noticed she was missing it was too late.

It isn’t only teenage boys who run away with the circus…
