Blind To Tragedy #flashfiction #prompt

They all saw the dog. Black, shaggy, watchful.

The suit said he couldn’t have known, not his fault. I think he blames the student for bumping into the guy. She’d have been watching the dog, too. At least the dude’s on it, holding the dog. Everyone’s worried about the dog.

I called a handler, just in case he bites. Standard procedure, when paramedics come. Now that’s sorted they all want away. No one’s asked about the guy, have they?

No one sees a stiff, not when there’s a dog to keep them distracted.
