Cupcake the Friendly Hamster

Cupcake the Friendly Hamster

A Story by Persona

An Anecdote


When I was seven, I began a phase in my life where I had hamsters. My favourite was Cupcake. She was feisty and grumpy. Which is what I look for in everything; pets, friends…okay maybe not pencils.

I thought Cupcake was lonely so I went outside to fetch her a new friend. I lived in America at the time, so there were all sorts of small creatures hidden in the blades of grass. I found a green little frog. He looked nice and felt smooth to the touch. I picked him up and placed him opposite to her in the cage.

Cupcake really liked him - she grabbed him straight away. I thought, ‘yay she’s going for a hug!’ Instead, she bit his head off. Then, she started eagerly eating him. I scooped Cupcake up into my hands while she stuffed her face. I had to show someone. Unfortunately, my parents were eating dinner with their friends. Oblivious to the fact that they may not want to see a bloody half eaten frog with his guts out, I showed them. My parents told me, ‘We’re eating! Take it away.’ I didn’t understand what the problem was. I thought it was cool.

This is such a great story about how a 7 year old thinks. There are a few grammatical errors, but the narration is clear, concise, and straightforward. This is a great bit of flash writing.
