8thdayfiction

…and on the 8th day, micro fiction was published on some dude's blog.

Farley

“What’s wrong, Farley? What is it that’s eating away at you?”

Farley just sat there, staring at Judd with emotionless eyes.

“You’re hurting, I can see that. What is it that hurt you? Or who?”

Farley kept staring.

“Your family is worried about you. They say you’re not eating and that you’ve been acting out.”

Still, Farley just sat there, silent.

“I want to help you, Farley. Let me in.”

Farley kept staring.

Judd got up and shook Farley’s cage. “Come on, Farley! Give me something to work with here! Sorry…sorry Farley–it’s not your fault, I shouldn’t have done that. Sorry.”

He paced back and forth, looking for inspiration, while Farley ran nervous circles around his cage. Judd knew he was going to have to work harder and be much more patient if he was ever going to make a living as a hamster whisperer.

But in his defense, Farley was pretty emotionally distant, even for a hamster.

    Nothing is worse than an emotionally distant hamster… well, except for a sarcastic, haughty parrot. Now those suck!
