Flash Friday 05/09/2014: Tents Moment

Harry heard an annoyed growl outside his tent door.
Gripping the handle of his kukri, Harry approached the entrance to the tent. Then, after a silent count of three, he burst outside, letting loose a war cry. Tiddles, the cat who disliked a tent pitched in the living room, scarpered away, dodging both Harry’s knife and his startled wife Wendy’s legs.
“If you’re going to camp indoors,” Wendy yelled from the living room doorway, “please don’t murder the cat!”
“Sorry, I got carried away. Uhm, if you’re going to the kitchen, can I get a coffee?”
Wendy rolled her eyes.
