My second Flash Fiction contest entry. Check it out from Charli at the Carrot Ranch for details of this week’s 99 word challenge and join in! My entry follows below.
I bathe in the forest, hidden under a canopy. Jaguars, grizzlies and reindeer approach, bringing the jungle, the forest and the tundra with each step. I eat a banana for breakfast; some nuts and berries for lunch. For dinner, a polar bear offers me fish.
A crane approaches and pecks the air above my head deliberately.
“This is not yours, human. You have not taken care of any of it. Take your punishment and go.”
I stir and exit the forest, my clothes pinching tightly around me. It appears we’re still banned and setting fires.
