Hello. Little girl. Said the wolf.
Hello. Said she. Adjusted her red hood.
You look cold. Observed the wolf. Smirk in his smile.
I am not. She replied. Voice firm. Strong.
What brings you here today? Asked the wolf.
I need to cross the forest. She said. But you are in my way. Please step aside.
I will eat you. Snapped his teeth. If you come closer.
She gasped. Eyes wide.
So come closer. Said the wolf. If you dare.
Despite herself. She inched. Closer.
Closer. Snarled the wolf.
Curious. Undaunted. She moved. Closer still.
The wolf takes a bite of her.
What are you doing? Asks Little Red.
I’m eating you. Snarled the wolf. I told you.
That doesn’t make it right. Said she.
I’m sorry. The wolf smirked. Did you misunderstand? I told you I would. It’s your fault. You got hurt.
I don’t think so. Says Little Red. That doesn’t give you. The right.
She turns. Snaps at his flesh. Bites.
The wolf is surprised. What are you doing?
I’m biting back. Snarls Little Red. Take your disclaimer. And go to hell.
