Kelly and the talking Collie

Extracts from this document...


Kelly and the talking Collie Thunder striking, sea separating when unknown creature dropped from above. I run a few miles to the Zambra River, a tribute to the sea which drops in close to the hill-side bank and runs deep and green. The climate of the place suddenly changes. The cold water bodies changed to warmness. On one side of the river the golden foot-hill slopes curve up to the strong and rocky mountains, but on the valley side the water is, lined with trees-willows fresh and green with spring, carrying in their lower leaf- junctures, the debris of the winter's flooding; and sycamores with mottled white recumbent limbs and branches that arch over the pool. I was very frightened I ran harshly then found a conscious animal lying on the ground. I said to my self, is this a fox or a dog? I went closer to the creature. Lying down consciously was a young Collie, little bigger than a pup with a brown tail and white fluffy skin. ...read more.


"My senior brother always teased me that I am geek, skinny and have a pointed nose like Elvis. I hate when he teased me. By the way who are you and how did you get here?" Ha! Ha! Ha! Laughed the Collie. Suddenly the atmosphere changed. "I was born out of doors, I think, under the tall green bracken or out on the bee-singing heather. My mother loved such places. She died when I was very small. When my mother died I started to follow a new bitch, who moved me away from my dwelling place to live beyond the forest. I got no love from her, cold food and a cold heart that was her way. Zenta, her man, was worse. Many's the time I thought he'd kill me." "Alright, come with me to my house to get you something to masticate," I said. "Ok", said the Collie. On our to my yard, the small collie dog began to direct his energies to burrowing in the ditches and the larger one to squeezing through the hedge, where he found himself, to his surprise in a field of sheep. ...read more.


Immediately the girls collapsed because they had never seen a talking dog before. I called the Collie for us to go home. He came to me without hesitating. Yum - yum - yum, the Collie was masticating the cheese and beef I gave him vigorously. As the Collie was eating, the door creaked on its hinges as an old man entered. More bent and more wrinkled. He supported himself by a single crutch, his eyes were covered by a shade, and his lower lip half averted hung pale and pink from his decaying yellow teeth. "What do you want?" I asked. "I've come to take Zaapi". "Who the hell is Zaapi?" I asked. "The Collie." said the old man. "My name is Zenta, the strongest and the ugliest dog in our habitat. I transformed my self into human so that you wouldn't be frightened when you see me." said the old man. I asked the Collie, "is Zaapi your name?" and he said yes with a node. "Sorry for not telling you earlier." said the Collie. The light in my house went off and there were heavy lightening, "thanks for helping Zaapi." said the old man. Both vanished.
