A to Z challenge: I!

So, my approach to the A-Z challenge is this:  Write a story using only words which begin with letters we've 'passed.' So, in other words, on day one I can use words which start with A, on day two it's words which start with A, or B, etc.

The goal here?  Silliness. Enjoy!

Today's Letter: I.

I - “I guess I’ll call it Hush,” Alan considered. He had discovered a creature in his box and it had hushed him.
    “Hush!” hushed Hush. “Hooooosh!” It bounced atop Alan’s hand. “Heesh heesh heeeeesh!”
    Alan chuckled at Hush’s antics. Its diminutive frame and itsy-bitsy claws brushed Alan’s fingers. Abruptly, Hush bit Alan’s fingertip, gently at first, but harder and harder. “Hey!” Alan hollered in aggravation. But Hush bit down even harder.
    “Hey! I-” Alan felt a curious feeling in his arm. Blood drained from his face, and he collapsed.

Scroll down for past letters and the beginning of this absurdity.

Oh dear, Hush ending up doing a hush on a whole other level. Wonderfully written piece.

That is a unique approach to the A-Z Challenge. It's a great way to stretch the old writing muscles too.
