sterling f.e.w. barnes
When I was searching in the closet I found a tiger cub. The tiger cub said to me, “I would like to live in this house.” I was so amazed that a tiger could actually talk that I stood there speechless until I finally got enough courage to say, “my name is Sterling where did you come from?”
He told me that he came from a different dimension and he got transported here through a dimensional rift. I then started thinking this is like a fairy tale. He then started rambling about how great his dimension was because it is so green and the air is so fresh.
After about five hours of talking I started to wish that the rift would open up again and take him. When he stopped, the rift swallowed him.
I was about one foot out of my room after the cub left and I heard a quack. I raced back into my room and saw a duck. It didn’t talk so I set it free.
Two days later on the news there was a report of a carnivorous duck with sharp teeth, eating people. I decided it was now the government’s problem.
