Story #6 – Slumber Bumm and the Red Wolf’s Toast – p.3

The red wolf was ready to try to escape again. He didn’t have any helpers lined up this time, though. Last week, one of the monkeys had tried to pick the lock on his cage, and three weeks before that, he’d gotten one of the elephants to pull at the bars. Tonight he was alone, and none of the other animals were roaming around. All the lights were going out, and all the cages and tent flaps and trailer doors were shut tight.

He let out a long, low, mournful howl.

Not long after, he heard a sound. Someone was coming. It was Slumber Bumm, still walking around in his sleep. The red wolf grinned, knowing that Big Bob Burr would probably get in a lot of trouble for letting the famous bear wander around all night instead of locking him up.

Then he wondered, if he could wake the bear up, maybe he could get him to help in the escape attempt, so he howled again.

Slumber Bumm stopped in his tracks, but instead of waking up, he turned around and started walking back the way he’d come. The red wolf was disappointed but not surprised. He paced in his cage for a while, when suddenly Slumber Bumm came back, carrying something. The red wolf watched, dumbfounded, as the bear walked up to his cage, put his big paw between the bars, and dropped off a piece of half-eaten toast.
