“What are you going to call that hideous concoction?” questions Hoss pointing his wing at the stuff.
“I think I will call them Donuts.” said Doe with pride.
Emmykins starts to laugh a big belly laugh, and rolls of the boulder she was sitting on and rolls to a stop at Munchkin’s feet. The others are also rolling on the woodland floor laughing.
Doe looks over at Elmo who was on his side holding his belly and laughing a great big belly laugh, with Shorty perched on his shoulder, lying on his back rocking back and forth laughing.
“Laugh all you want, but my Donuts will catch a human.” Doe stomps his hoof and stands up straight with confidence.
“Hey, look I have the perfect snack to use for our trap.” said Doe.
“What do you have?” said Hoss.
“Just come and look at these are amazing!” stated Doe.
Hoss worked his way over there and looked; he put his wing on his beak and shakes his head a little. He looked at Doe and looked over to the others and let out a soft chuckle.
“You need to come and see these amazing goodies.” The others make their way over to them.
“Wait! What is that??” said Emmykins, pointing at the five rolled balls.
“That is food, well it will be food after I find some loose bark to spice the flavors.” said Doe.
“That doesn’t look very appetizing Doe.” said Elmo.
“I will eat it!” said Munchkin jumping up and down .
“Yeah, let Munchkin try It.” giggled Shorty.
“No, not yet it isn’t completely perfect yet.” said Doe.
Letting a heavy sigh out Elmo sat next to Munchkin, “Hurting someone is never the answer” Elmo stated.
“We need to figure out the proper way of catching a human without causing harm.” said Hoss.
“How about we look for some ideas as we make our way to the grove?” said Doe.
“I think that is a very good idea Doe.” said Hoss.
“Munchkin how about looking for some berries or something nice that can be used to catch a human.” said Shorty.
“Like berries and grass?” said Munchkin?
“That will do nicely, who wouldn’t like some berries and grass?” asked Emmykins.
All six of them slowly started to browse the area to find something that could be as use to catch their human; Doe picked a variety of different plant leaves and some shrubbery. He used his hoof to rustle the leaves back from the forest ground, where it was damp and he placed his variety of goodies on the ground. He slowly kneaded his hoof over it as the damped dirty and vegetation rolled into a ball. He did this for a short time until he had five freshly rolled balls.
Thank you for making “HOW TO CATCH A HUMAN” popular. When my Sister first sent me her first pages, they were not in any format.
I asked “Sis, Why don’t you put it in the right format?”
She replies,” When I sit down and write, I don’t worry about putting it into any format. Wendell or you will put it in for me.”
So, I started to put it into the format, spell check, proofreading, and make any changes that needed to be made. this is what we have today. We are still working on it, and enjoying the laughter along the way. Oh, they named Jelly the Duck after me. This is because of my love of Donald Duck, and I can talk like him. Each character has everyone’s unique personality.
As we get more into the story we will get more laughter to come. So, I want to Thank You again for making it a HIT.
“Who will go and warn the others to stay away from the barrel and who goes get the human?” asked Elmo.
Jelly puts her wing on the side of her head and tapped her featherly finger on her temple.
“I’ve got it! I will go warn the others and you six go and catch us a human.” said Jelly.
“We will do it, we will go and catch a human and be back as soon as we have one.” said Elmo as he smiled proudly as his mind starts to conduct a plan on a trap.
They headed back through the woods as they passed an old tree that was hollowed out from age and passed the stage of petrified, Munchkin noticed a twisted branch that was shaped like a walking stick.
Munchkin rustle over to it fast grasping the stick up. “Look! Look! A Stick! Can We Hit! Hit!” said Munchkin.
“No, Munchkin. We Do Not Hit!” Shorty scolded Munchkin. The sound of laughter was coming from behind Shorty; she turns and glares at Emmykins.
Pulling the stick from his grasp Elmo shook his head. “Oh, No! No! No! We Must Not Hit!” Hoss stated.
“Bu…T buu…t” Munchkin stuttered as he spoke.
