Hunger clawed my stomach.
Those were the only words in my mind.
I bound into an open clearing. There was a strange looking animal. It had no hair except on its head. Wispy, black hair. It’s gap filled mouth looked like a snarl turned upside down. It lifted a black square that I thought as harmless but then the flash made me jump. A noise came from it but…it didn’t sound angry. It started running toward me.
It pointed at itself then at a flower.
Her name was Flower? That moment that I knew what happiness feels like.
