A Good Laugh
Roxanne Von Drake was really nervous about her upcoming psychiatric appointment. She had thought about canceling it at least twice, already. It was embarrassing enough that she had almost had a nervous breakdown in front of all her friends when one of them asked her to go with them to the beach. Now she was expected to spill her guts out to a total stranger! Even so, she had heard nothing but good reports and testimonials from her psychiatrist’s former patients. Roxie made up her mind to give it a try.
Roxie signed in with Dr. Stone’s secretary and sat down in the waiting room. The room was adorned with a big potted palm in the corner and a few beautiful landscape paintings. There was also an aquarium near the secretary’s desk with a variety of exotic fish, plastic seaweed, colorful gravel and even a bubble-blowing treasure chest. Roxie smiled; it reminded her of her old gold fish tank from when she was a child.
In front of her was a coffee table with a few old magazi
It was closing time at the Blackthorn Mall. Stores all around were closing shop, including the local shoe store, Pawesome Footwear. Arthur, who worked at the store, was just putting up the last sneakers up on the shelf, when his Manager came up to him.
“Good work, m’boy. You’re doing a splendid job. If you keep this up, I see a promotion in your near future.”
“Thank you very much, Mr. Cunningham.” said Arthur as he put up the last box of Cheetah brand running shoes on the shelf.
“Now” said Mr. Cunningham “Close up the doors and turn off the lights. I’ll be in the Manager’s Room if you need me” And with that, he left.
Arthur went to the door to lock it, when a magazine of “Runners Monthly” caught his eye. He saw a very cute Wolf girl on the cover, posing for the cover, showing off her new Cheetah brand running shoes. Arthur sighed. He wasn’t very lucky when it came to romance. Most of the girls at
“Good evening. I’m Nicole Winters…”
Nicole was a lovely vixen in her late twenties. Her striking red fur and piercing gold eyes did a great deal to keep viewership high, but her incomparable focus and dedication to her work spoke volumes of her character. She’d been with the station for only six months, yet had already risen in rank from a street-side reporter to co-anchor of the program. Needless to say, this did not set well with everyone…
“… and I’m Tom Renton. In our top story…”
Tom smiled to keep up a professional appearance, but secretly resented playing second to anybody, especially someone so young. He’d been working as a reporter for a long time and he knew what was in store for him. They bring in a fresh young face to brighten up the place and saddle them up with a seasoned vet until they’re comfortable with the routine. Nicole wasn’t his partner; she was his replacement!
Glitter and GoldieGoldie had been on the road for quite some time when he finally spotted a village on the horizon. The prospect of sleeping in a bed rather than out in the open gave him the strength to press on and, in no time at all, he arrived in Crooksford.
He made arrangements to spend the night and put down his last coin for supper. The night was young and the fox soon grew board. He decided to venture out and see what the town had to offer. Even without a cent to his name, a traveler could always find welcome at the local pub. Spinning tales and making boasts could earn a drink or two and it was a sure way to while away the hours.
The villagers were colorful and made for good company. He told of his adventures and they offered up advice and good cheer.
“The swamps in this area are so full of thorns; you’d be wise to get some footwear, boy!”
“Such a fine long coat, yet you go about without even a set of sandals? Your pads must be hard as rock!”
“I hear there are
