Zookeeper – A 79-Word Flash Fiction Story


Lita works nights at The Zoo. She likes working with animals. Animals don’t care about her looks. They don’t mind her scars or limp. They give her unconditional love because she appeals to their base instincts.

She returns behind the bar, sets out her tip jar, and asks, “Ok fellas, what’ll you have?”
