The Punishment (Inktober Day 6: Rodent)

Do you know what my biggest fear is?

It’s nothing common like snakes or heights or even the dark. 

No, it’s something far worse in my eyes. 

Anytime I see a rodent, no matter the size, my heart starts racing.

I break into a sweat, and I have to get away as fast as I can.

What have I done bad to suffer this punishment?

Locked in a room with all these rats.

Chained to a wall with no way out. 

How long will I be here?

How long before they get hungry?
