The Danger of Sundrops

By saname and catie on November 5, 2009

Yonder bears ambling along the river, catching fireflies and sundrops, on a mission to cancel hunger. A piece of sundrop sizzles aimlessly through Fred's peripheral vision, causing Fred to scream. He didn't mean to, but he fell towards Pinky.

This annoyed Pinky and as she turned her amber eyes upward, she got an aneurysm.

She died.

Fred felt that everyone would rather he had not killed Pinky. Angstily, he stormed away to sing alone because singing helps with the pain. Pinky's ghost floated along beside Fred. All night he trembled but Pinky's spirit would not relent.

She wanted to live.
