The Runaway Fox

The Runaway Fox

Fan fiction of, The Runaway Bunny, by Margaret Wise Brown

There was once a little red fox who told his mother, “I am running away so that I can do anything I want to.”

“If you run away from me I will have to run after you, because you are my little red fox,” his mother replied.

“But if you try to run after me, I will turn myself into the wind and fly through the trees in order to get away from you.”

“Yes, but if you become the wind,” said his mother, “I will become a cloud in the sky, and I will find you.”

“Mother, if you become a cloud in the sky, I will become a shark in the ocean and swim far, far away.”

“My little red fox,” said his mother, “If you become a shark in the ocean, I will become an ocean wave, so that I can find you wherever you go.”

“But Mother, if you turn into an ocean wave,” said the little fox, “I will become a cheetah and run faster than any other animals in the forest.”

“My little red fox,” said his mother, “If you become a cheetah, I will become a hawk, so that I can spot you from high above, wherever you decide to go.”

“But mother, if you become a hawk I will become a child and run into a house so that I can hide from you.”

“My little red fox,” said his mother, “If you become a human child and run inside a house, I will become your mother and hold you in my arms to tell you how much I love you.”

The little red fox sighed as he relaxed alongside the soft belly of his mother, “Well, I guess it is better that I stay where I am and be your little fox.”

The little red fox closed his eyes to sleep, and his mother covered him as she always did with her fluffy, white tipped tail.

“Good night, my little red fox,” she said as she lay her head down and closed her own eyes for the night.
