A Story by Jacob

written for a contest


I looked around the room. Nothing seemed unusual, but then the devil pointed out to me at the little teddy bear hiding behind the curtain. i went across the room and slowly, tenderly, pushed the huge couch. And behind, was this little teddy bear. The devil came closer and said,

"Who's this teddy? Whose is this? 

It looks so timid, I wonder if it can talk at all"

I went down on my knees to have a closer look at the teddy. The teddy was furry and seemed like the fur had been dipped in chocolate and milk.

So I smelt the fur.

The teddy had eyes dark brown that seemed like almonds dipped in dark chocolate.


So I licked the left eye.


Now the devil fired up his eyes and lengthened his nails to probably eat up the teddy.

The devil said,


“Give me my teddy, I know what he likes.

He likes me to eat him nice.”


I grabbed the teddy from the floor and pushed the devil away.

I might not be a devil, but even I like to eat once in a while.
