Today's #flashfiction Morry And The Cheese

I wonder if anyone has snowed on a parade. It's probably worse than raining on someone's parade. Anyway onto the flash fiction!

Morry And The Cheese

         Morry the Mouse stared at the mousetrap in front of him. The cheese beckoning to him. Unlike other mice he knew what the trap entailed because he saw some other poor mouse soul get caught in another trap. He knew he should avoid it. But oh! That cheese. He crept towards the trap. Every so slowly, just to sniff. He sat there, half an inch away from the trap, sniffing the cheese. He knew he couldn't eat it. So he just looked. And looked. Time melted away while he stared.

        Then, while he was still entranced by the cheese, the cat got him.
