Short Story #37. The Mouse (Saki)

Deal Me In Reading Challenge: I drew the king of hearts.

Story: The Mouse, by Saki (available here)

Comments: This is a very short (1,520 words) and funny story by one of the classic masters of the genre.  A mouse gets trapped in the clothing of a gentleman just before he boards a train – how does he divest himself of it when a lady occupies the same carriage?  The twist comes in the last line.

Take a few minutes to read it.
