The Sweet Perspective of Ace

Dedicated to Sweet Aces 

A hunter comes to the rescue and with his axe cuts open the sleeping wolf. Little Red Riding Hood and her grandmother emerge unharmed. They then fill the wolf’s body with heavy stones. The wolf awakens and tries to flee, but the stones cause him to collapse on the porch of a glass house. The huffing and a puffing causes the windows to fog. Ace, the occupant of the house, realizes the world cannot stare at him like a fish in a bowl anymore. He decides to use this time to do something he always wanted to do: Jump on the computer and criticize people online. Upon typing his first insult, his body is tossed across the room like a paper basketball. He waves some of the steam off the glass and sees the wolf outside launching itself at the house. Through the crack of the glass Ace took a great breath and sang out, “Wolf! Wolf!” The sheeple faced an uphill battle and couldn’t come to the rescue. Ace had 2 options: Stay inside and be stabbed to death when the glass shattered or go outside and be eaten by the dangerous predator. He shot for the moon. He put on his spacesuit to protect him from the sharpness of both the glass and the wolf’s teeth. With broken glass everywhere and the wolf dying, staring at one of the pieces, seeing his life flash before his eyes, one of the disguises over the years stuck out. That of grandma. No matter how big his hands was, big bad wolf could never hug like grammy use to. Rest in peace, baby girl …

    1. Thank youuuuuuu. I needed an angle to dangle by the ankles. When I read the alternative ending to Little Red Riding Hood and found out a hunter saved her and the grandma and they filled it’s stomach with stones, I connected that to the “don’t throw stones if you live in a glass house.” Hence why the wolf was launching itself at the house when Ace criticize people online. The beginning was borrowed from Wikipedia. Then the part where I said the wolf collapsed on the porch of the glass house was when I did my transition.
