I’m not well, light sensitive headaches which mean I have to keep my screen time to a minimum. This means I can’t contribute to this week’s Friday Fiction which is killing me, so I thought I’d share this amazing video done by Kent Bonham of one of my earlier Friday Fiction stories instead. It arrived a couple of Sundays ago, in my inbox. There I was, minding my own business, munching at a bit of toast and sipping a nice cup of tea, when up popped a message from Rochelle asking me what I thought of a video Kent had done of one of my stories.
What did I think? I thought it was wonderful, a massive compliment and the best of Sunday surprises.
I hope you agree.
And here’s the original story:
The Dog and The Tree (Translated from the original by EL Appleby)
Tree was mostly happy with his lot, he had plenty of sun and his dear friend, Stream, flowed beneath his roots. If it wasn’t for that damned dog, everything would be perfect.
Tree had an idea, he whispered it to Stream, ‘Rustley-rustle-rustle?’ 
And Stream replied ‘Whoosh-trickly-whoosh-whoosh-wooshy-wooshy-woo.’ 
The next day, Dog came bounding along and lifted his leg, ‘Woof! Woof-woofy-woof-woof!’
Stream, who’d been holding his breath for a good hour, aimed a burst of icy water at Dog’s privates.
‘Yelp!’  said Dog.
‘Rustle-rrrustle-rustle!’  giggled Tree.
(100 words – translations below for those who don’t speak Doggish, Treese or Streamese)
 Love ya, Tree, I really really love ya!
 Hey, Stream, I’ve got a plan to sort that damned dog out once and for all, you in?
 Fuck me, that’s cold!
 Best. Fun. Ever.
