Story #6 – Slumber Bumm and the Red Wolf’s Toast – p.2

February 22, 2012 at 8:31 pm 3 comments

After one such night, when the red wolf had raged at the people who came to see him and exhausted himself, he lay panting in his cage, tired but too angry to sleep.

Big Bob Burr, the circus strong man, came walking by. He was carrying two 50-pound dumbbells, one in each hand, and was lifting them over his head as he walked. He was whistling a tune, and dancing along behind him to the sound was Slumber Bumm, the world famous “sleep-working” bear. He had been hypnotized by someone long ago to perform tasks in his sleep, and the tune Big Bob Burr was whistling was making him dance a silly walking jig.

The red wolf had always loathed the sight of Slumber Bumm, mindlessly doing tricks and making a fool of himself. Even when he was awake, the bear was docile and obedient.

Big Bob Burr looked over at the wolf as he passed the cage. “Worn yourself out again tonight, champ? Keep it up, that’s a boy!” In the time it took for him to say those words, his whistling hold on Slumber Bumm had failed, but only enough to stop him from dancing. He stood still, lightly snoring, until Big Bob started up his shrill tune again, and the two made their way past the wolf’s cage.

    He should know better than to taunt a red wolf! Your strength won’t help with such a smart and cunning animal!
