100 Word Challenge -- Bear



Velvet Verbosity has returned and my creative juices are wanting to flow again. The word we were given this week is BEAR.




He was hungry. Winter had been long and food scarce when he had gone searching.

With the return of warm weather; however, he knew he would find sustenance carefully packed and stored inside their flimsy tents. One swipe of his paw would gain him entrance to a feast far different from his usual fare. Easily accessible, sweet, and filling.

A mighty roar escaped his throat before he turned to lumber back up the side of the mountain. Experience had taught him not to linger. Their fear of him brought the burden of danger. A danger he was willing to bear --- for Twinkies.

I had Twinkies in my lunch almost everyday when I was in High School. H-m-m-m Bears is this a coindense? Bears to sew, bears to write about?

A very interesting read! Well done!

Oh I loved the way you wrote this. Very clever. How could you blame the bear taking the risk for Twinkies!

Oh, and I'm NEVER going camping :)

And on the practical side that is why you should never leave food in your tent. I liked the story though.

That very last line....A danger he was willing to bear.....

That was a terrific ending.

He better watch those twinkies! Nothing like a bear with love handles.
