Friday Fictioneers – June 6, 2013 — ‘Fable Abel’

FABLE ABEL

Hello!” Dickey Hendricks greeted the curious animal in the forest.

Hello.”

Boy, you’re funny looking!  Who are you?”

I’m Fable Abel.”

Who’s that?”

The main character in a fable about just being yourself.”

Tell me.”

Well, my author created me to be a zebra. He gave me these hind legs. But then I saw a tiger and insisted on becoming a tiger instead. But when I saw a giraffe, I begged my author to make me a giraffe. But just as he was drawing my head, I saw an elephant and shouted, ‘No, I want to be an elephant with a looooong trunk!’”

Oh my!  So what are you now?”

A lesson for boys and girls like you.”
