Peeping Tom

Tom was a curious boy – until he saw what he shouldn’t.

Ma told him to mind his own business, but he couldn’t resist the sounds on the other side of the fence. Just a tiny peep was all he needed.

It was the last thing he ever saw.

But every night he sees them in his dreams.

    Tom will peep no more. I was wondering what he was going to see. I guess it’s best not to know.

      With that story I purposely left it a little fuzzy so you can imagine whatever it is he’s seeing in his dreams each night. I hope it is something good.
