injaynesworld we are "Still Haunted By It..."

Stop watching.

I was only a child and they made it sound like so much fun.   I went with them eagerly.

There’s still time.  Turn away. 

How could I have known it would end like this?  

Close your eyes!  Now!  

But I didn’t.   The blast of a shotgun, the look on his face when he knew he’d been betrayed, his body – lifeless in a bloody heap on the ground – all forever burned into the cortex of my brain like the brand of a hot iron.   The scream exploded from the deepest part of my broken young heart…

They shot Old Yeller!

From the prompt “Stopwatch” at One-Minute Writer.   And, by the way, a true story.
