A Tale of Understanding

By @RachelElizabethDonut

I had to create a sort of character based off of an animal I chose as an assignment. I chose the fox as it is my favorite, and I created this dialogue. Hope you like it!

Chapter 1

A Tale in Which a Human talks to a Fox

A tale in Which a Human Talks to a Fox

Once there was a human who had quite a lively conversation with an unusual recipient of the ability to speak. She, the human, bumped into a soft, fluffy thing as she meandered down the walkway. A flash of red and white slithered by and she saw sly green eyes pass her field of vision. Blackened ears flitted her way as she cried out to catch this strange figure. The only reply he gave to her cries for him to stop was, “Busy darlin’, if ya couldn’t tell.”

The chase ensued as she noticed watches, necklaces and earrings zip by in a flash and find a home inside the tailored, long grey coat of the sleazy sneaky fox. Finally she corners the anti-social, grumpy fox in an abandoned alleyway of sorts. “I couldn’t help but notice that you are quite the thief and cheapskate.” She noted. “I think I’m starting to understand why you are the way you are. In fact I feel I understand completely-” he cuts her off with a snarl. “Don’t try to do no sort of ‘understandin’, miss. I’m the worst kinda creature there is, and it’s clear as day I shouldn’t be trusted. I’ve been cursed at, I’ve been beaten, I’ve been livin’ a lonely life. Don’t you dare try to pin a category of me own private story onto me back for all to see. No one cares, no one listens, and that’s how it’s meant to be.”

He jumps away swiftly, and leaves her quite perplexed. She struggles for a response but she can only utter, “I only wished to be the one to understand you best…”
