EM-Drabbles – One Hundred & Sixteen

The feud started when the neighbour painted their shared drainpipe a shade of puke green. Ron had objected, of course, but the neighbour just laughed. Ron got revenge by refusing to throw the children’s balls back and started a collection in his pigeon shed. 

The neighbour got a cat to hunt Ron’s pigeons. Ron got a dog to hunt the cat.

Ron’s grandchildren were bullied by the neighbours kids in school. And then one of the grandchildren was arrested for knifing a neighbour’s kid.

Ron’s daughter came to his house, tearful.

“I hope you’re bloody satisfied now, Dad ,” she said.
