Writing Prompt: Chaos and Fox

Anderson came home to find absolute chaos. His wife had left him for their neighbor. The entire house was in disarray. He didn’t know how he was going to move forward. He was beginning to regret joining the military and serving so many years overseas. Had he known what he would be coming home to, he would have thought twice. Then again, maybe him being gone so long was for the best. 

He sat on the front porch musing on the irony that his life was slowly becoming a country song. He never really cared for country music. He didn’t hate it. It just wasn’t really a genre of music that appealed to him. He was beginning to get lost in thoughts of creating words for the song of his life when he caught a movement in the corner of his eye,. He looked up to see a fox standing at the end of the yard looking at him.

“Sorry little one. I don’t have any food for myself. Much less a beautiful creature as yourself.”

I am not here for food. I am here to find someone.

“What in the bloody hell? DId you just talk to me?”

You can hear me?

They both sat there staring at each other in complete shock. Anderson hadn’t slept in several days. He was sure that he was just hallucinating. He would find himself awake in a few hours in his bed realizing that this was all just a dream. 

I suppose it is you that I have come for, then.
