Last week I introduced you to Big Mack here. This is Mack's younger brother, Lil' Jack. As you can see, the brothers are very different. Lil' Jack has always been the smaller of the two. He often finds himself in
trouble and rarely takes a bath. Big mack looks out for his little brother. They recently retired to the forest and live in an old boot.
The other day Big Mack and Lil' Jack came outside and were stopped in their tracks by something very unsettling. Big Mack did not move. His eyes were fixed in a suspicious, sideways stare..."what are they?" he whispered. Lil' Jack, who was just as suspicious and afraid, felt the need to run away. He whispered back, "I have no idea but the one is holding his own head and I would like to go back inside now." The brothers slowly and quietly shuffled backwards, tracing over the very same steps they took coming outside. They shut and locked the door and leaned up against it for a few minutes. Once they got feeling into their legs again they walked to the kitchen and sat down. They grabbed their half empty coffee cups from the table and began sipping, ever so slowly, the remains in the cup. They barely noticed the coffee was now cold. They decided, without saying a word to each other, that they don't need to go outside today, or tomorrow.. or ever again.
Come back soon! I'll be revealing the next character who will be living in the forest!
