CW: Life under the rug.

“Write about a colony of dust mites that live beneath the carpet of a famous person.”
– a prompt for this week’s CW piece.

Do you think humans ever wish they were us?

What kind of question is that? Of course! Look at us. Home all day, while they are never here. Always chasing a new dream.

True. He has not been here since the party.

But what party it was?! That woman crushed a bunch of our buddies when she fell.

And a bunch of others almost drowned in the bloody pool she left behind.

They wonder what would happen if walls could talk, but the stories WE could tell…

As the two of them reminisced about the things the owner of the house did when he was not working or on tour, a loud noise penetrated the air.

Nooooo! The HEPA filter vacuum!” – he screamed as he and his family and friends got sucked in.


I would rather not get sued, so I have to say that the story and characters in it are a figment of the author’s imagination. Any resemblance to actual people, locations and occurrences is purely coincidental.
