“Don’t do it, Macy. You are so going to be sorry! Please !”
“Oh shut up Anna, Anna, Anna. Annoying Anna! Hahaha, you scared? ”
The tall girl was laughing so hard at the little one who was called Anna. The ugly tall one was laughing so hard that I didn’t bother.
“Wait. What? Just like that? You didn’t bother warning her ?”
“I felt so bad about it, but it was like karma or something.”
“Aren’t you a little bit afraid of her,” Anna whimpered.
“You know, now that’s she’s dead ”
I opened my mouth but was interrupted by the door slamming.

You were just a tree
Until I hired them to hack on thee
Now I am startled by the way your trunk resembles the
Grotesque limbs I saw in a horror movie
I hope it was just
But it was with such joy and happiness and relief to see
The job was complete
Leaving me without that creepy tree
That resembled much too
The one in the film (which it’s twin
Had to be…)
The monstrous and horrible thing…

”Donald, come out. We know you are in here. We can help you but we need you to cooperate with us. We know you are scared but no one will hurt you. You can trust us. We are your friends. We only want to talk. ”
The tall man in charge was getting annoyed and I could sense that he was also afraid. Afraid of not finding Donald. I tried to hide my amusement at his obvious distress. It really wasn’t a funny situation.
The tall man kept looking anxiously for Donald to come out.
I jokingly stated that Donald was probably contemplating his surrender but the white flag was out of the question since he was out of toilet paper.
The tall man whose name was ironically George Smalley wasn’t amused and told me to shut up.
I silently turned the remote on and Donald the duck was suddenly spinning and quacking his way to end the hostage standoff on top of a Roomba.
“That is Donald? ”
”Duck, duck… Goose, ” I cheerfully called over my shoulder.
