In Sheep’s Clothing

“Awwwee, look at this sheep, she’s chhoooo cuuuuute,” the man cried out to his wife as he went shutter-happy taking my photos.
Suppressing the itch from the ill-fitting sheep-skin, I posed for the pictures with wide, innocent eyes, even as I decided exactly how he would die by my fangs.
Three lives, one for each bag of wool that these thieves stole mercilessly from my client, Baa Baa- this was going to be a fun assignment.

Written as a part of the Three Line Tale challenge, hosted by Sonya.

    Such a cute photo, and so deceptive. Who would have known what was lurking beneath? Great story.
