Living in Monochrome

When she stopped seeing colour she told no one, except the dog, who’d already figured it all out after she forgot to read the label and fed him a can of peaches. He ate every bit. Lapped up the syrup like it was cold water on a hot day, because she’d raised him to always focus on the positive. She practiced what she preached, smiling about the money she’d save on coloured printer ink. The time she’d save not having to plan the flower garden colour scheme. How she’d no longer have to worry about her husband’s unhealthy red cheeks.
