Prompt: fear

part 6 of the series: The Florida Adventure

Our cats were traumatized even before we sold our house, and today we had to travel for over two hours.

As another mournful howl emanated from behind my seat I hoped they wouldn’t express their anxiety the whole trip.

"This has become a major problem," I sighed. "They’re acting like it’s the greatest tragedy of their lives."

"Maybe it is," my partner replied. "Their routine’s been disrupted and hasn’t improved in months." He gave the fully-loaded cargo area behind us a quick glance.

Suddenly, a decorative wrought iron butterfly shifted position, making a loud noise, followed by more panicked meows.
