Jay always loves to work in the spick and span atmosphere. His workplace is a dreamland for him.
Jay has been working here for quite a while. His debonair demeanor has earned him close friendship with many.
Recently Jay was under the impression that he was being stalked and his friends were avoiding him for no reason at all. He wanted to brush aside all these thoughts but he could not.
Today he was the first person to step in the office. He was looking all around. Suddenly the colorful mouse caught his eyes.
The kleptomaniac in him slowly rose.

Oh there is a reason I think.. I guess Jay is on his way of getting caught.
Poor Jay. He could not resist!
I love how it twists at the end and shows that he’s a thief.
Jay is a package of conflict, isn’t he? I don’t think he’ll get away with mouse theft. 😉
Jay will learn his lesson too late.
With ornery intentions like that he will get caught eventually, maybe. Thanks for visiting my site recently, and reading my story.
Losing his friends could have been a warning, but he didn’t learn the lesson. Good story.
No wonder he is paranoid. But I can understand him coveting that mouse. It’s delicious.
Why do I have the feeling that Jay is someone you have met along the way?
Jay seems to be having some irrational thoughts lately…maybe he’s working too hard. That is an attractive mouse but it didn’t belong to him…shame on Jay!
Good piece. Enjoyed reading.
Good one! I was thinking it was a real mouse in the office that was stalking him. Then, I was surprised to see the picture of the computer mouse! 🙂
stalking him and avoiding him? Howz that possible together?
Good twist in the end.
