The Case of the Disappearing Marshmallow’s Part 6

26 Jan

Last time on the case of the disappearing marshmallows, Peter had finally met the culprit responsible for the disappearance of his precious treats. It was Pablo the porcupine, and he had a pile of marshmallows at his feet.

​Peter was speechless. He had known Pablo for years. He could have never imagined that Pablo was capable of such a horrible thing. The only word that escaped Peter’s mouth as he stood before Pablo was, “Why?”

“Why would you do such a thing,” exclaimed Peter?

“What did marshmallows ever do to you except fill your bellow with yummy goodness?”

“Yummy goodness,” Pablo shouted out in anger!

“Yummy goodness, I’ll tell you about yummy goodness!”

“When you were off roasting marshmallows on a stick to stuff your froggy face with smores, I was being used as the stick.”
Peter didn’t understand what Pablo was talking about.

“What do you mean Pablo?”

“What do you mean you were used as a stick?”

After a long silence, Pablo finally spoke. His face was a little more tender this time, and Peter almost thought that he actually saw a tear fall down Pablo’s cheek as he spoke.

“When I was a young porcupine Pablo said softly, the foxes used to pick on me horribly.”

“I was off camping in the woods with my friends one summer, and we were settling in to make some treats after playing in the lake.”

“We started a huge bon fire.”

“This wasn’t just any fire, but this was the fire of fires.”

“This fire was so big you could see it from space!”

“We pulled out our sticks to start roasting marshmallows for smores when we heard a noise in the woods moving closer to us.”

“It was the sound of howls, and a lot of them.”

“Soon we were surrounded by foxes, and what they did to me and my friends is the reason why I’m destroying all your precious marshmallows.”
