The End is for Dogs

Everyone is gone. My humans are gone. I am left without a home and I am all alone. I have been searching for my people for a couple of days now and I am starving. I haven’t found any people, but I have found another fellow dog. He says his name is Jack and he is trying to find his people too! We don’t know where they went…maybe on a vacation? They never leave without saying goodbye or see you later. Jack and I are on the search for food, since we don’t have our normal food anywhere out here in these weird woods, we have to find something. I smell something…I smell something that smells familiar. I start running and I hear something, it sounds like water. I haven’t been this happy since three days ago! I am so hungry and thirsty, this water is going to taste delicious! I go to take a big lick at the streaming river, but this water tastes like dirt. But I have found a fish, I am going to catch it and me and Jack are going to share it.

A year has gone by and the world is full of dogs just like me, everywhere! We are so happy and we have figured out how to hunt other animals. When we bark, we scare the birds. When we jump in the water, we scare the fish to where they are frightened enough that they freeze, that’s when we get them! The world is so great now, even though there are days that I miss my family and my home. They didn’t want me, so I had to make it on my own. Along the way I found so many other dog friends that I love this life even more! We never have humans yelling at us and we can eat whatever and use the bathroom wherever we want! Life with just dogs is the best life I have lived.

Finis…An Alternate Ending

I am going to be writing an alternate ending for the short story Finis. 

Original ending: 

“Kiss me!” she whispered suddenly, throwing her arms around his neck. He could feel her trembling. “Say you love me; hold me in your arms. There is only an hour.”

“Don’t be afraid. Try to face it bravely,” stammered Eastwood.

“I don’t fear it—not death. But I have never lived. I have always been timid and wretched and afraid—afraid to speak—and I’ve almost wished for suffering and misery or anything rather than to be stupid and dumb and dead, the way I’ve always been.

“I’ve never dared to tell anyone what I was, what I wanted. I’ve been afraid all my life, but I’m not afraid now. I have never lived; I have never been happy; and now we must die together!”

It seemed to Eastwood the cry of the perishing world. He held her in his arms and kissed her wet, tremulous face that was strained to his.

The twilight was gone before they knew it. The sky was blue already, with crimson flakes mounting to the zenith, and the heat was growing once more intense.

“This is the end, Alice,” said Eastwood, and his voice trembled.

She looked at him, her eyes shining with an unearthly softness and brilliancy, and turned her face to the east.

There, in crimson and orange, flamed the last dawn that human eyes would ever see.

New, alternate ending: 

“Kiss me!” she whispered suddenly. Eastwood thought to himself that her request was odd and like every world ending movie where there are only a man and woman left on Earth.

“No Alice, I can’t. We aren’t going to die. We can’t be the only survivors out there.” Eastwood told her in a very asserting tone.

Alice started to burst into tears thinking she was going to end her life alone and unhappy, as she had always been.

Suddenly, the two looking into the flame saw something bursting out of the “second sun.”

“Could it be? Could there be more life somewhere else?” screamed Alice to Eastwood. “What is that? Who is that?!” She continued on.

That’s when a big white space-like ship came flying slowly through the air. They both waved their hands as this was their only hope for life.

The floating ship came down and landed near them, they went running towards it. The ship opened and out came a new form of life.

Alice and Eastwood were thrilled to see these people that were different but not as much as they thought. These people were indeed people but with a little more robotic form to them.

Off went Alice and Eastwood in the flying ship to where the two suns collided.

The End.
