"Perry, come quickly!"
"What is it, Harry?" I shouted back.
"Out in the garden, something you've never seen before and won't see again! A mythic creature!"
Racing outside, I saw the astounding animal!
"Incredible!" I cried. "It's part zebra, tiger, elephant and more! What is it?"
"It's called a Tigerzetrunk. Legend has it that Odysseus first saw one on his travels and it hasn't been seen since!"
The tigerzetrunk looked up shyly, saw us, and ran. I snatched a quick picture with my cell phone before it sped off into the bushes.
"Wait til they see this!" I said to Harry.
"Doubt anyone will believe you, they'll just think you photo shopped it."
"You're probably right, old friend," I said. "Well, goodbye, Bigfoot, check you later."
Whether or not you believe me, it's all true!
That is, it's true that this is my weekly submission for the Fabulous Friday Fictioneers, with the picture prompt up top, the story below, and 124 words in praise of the equally fabulous tigerzetrunk therein. Don't believe me? Consult the views of the other Fictioneers with a mighty mythical click right here.
Yep, the tigerzetrunk sure was cute! Just ask my friend Harry.
