Though he was a little scared, he dashed towards a clearing. After running in solitude for a while, he stopped to observe two strange animals, an unlikely pair, walking beside each other in silence. One was an awkward creature who walked on two legs. It's eyes were unfocused and it did not hear or smell the little animals in the ground or in the air all around it. It seemed to be walking asleep.
The other was a beautiful golden beast who was confident in his stride and whose nose made him aware of all that was going on. For a moment, the little fox thought he recognized something in him. He felt a connection and could not suppress the sudden, happy urge to play.
So he ran to the beast. It jumped for joy, and wanted to play too. But, the beast was tethered to the two legged creature, who was not playful at all. The creature made mean noises and forced the golden beast to yield obediently.
The little fox ran away frightened and hid behind some chaparral bushes. Sadly, he watched them walk away.
But then he decided to find some other animals. Maybe he could play with some, but hopefully he'd get to eat some too.
Based on a true story.
