The Easter Bunny Died - 12 Eggs of Easter

I have been writing poetry, fiction and short stories for many years and have completed a book of poems. I also enjoy comedy writing.

"Gimme back my eggs! Thief! somebody please help." the easter bunny shouted has he madly hopped behind Frank the Fox who had over a dozen easter eggs in his satchel. "Ha ha, you will have to do better than that if you want to catch a sly fox like me you bucket of furball." Said Frank as he dashed away from the easter bunny making good hos escape in bushes heading into the dark zone. The dark zone was a part of the forest that no animal ventured into, well, animals that wanted to remain alive that is. The dark zone was crawling was unscruplious shadows of unheard beast and other things with sharp tooth and fangs. Ricky stopped at the edge of the bushes as he watched the fox ruffle his way through the thick shrub and soon was totally out of sight.

"Oh my God. What am I to do? That nasty old fox has gotten my easter eggs and I simply can't allow easter to be cancelled this year. I need those eggs." said Ricky the Rabbit. Ricky had to get back those eggs because those were the 12 magical eggs of easter. Each egg possessed a trait which brought the joy and goodwill that easter brought. The eggs contained, Sacrifice, Love, Divinity, resurrection, youthfulness, playfulness, family, prayer, hope, faith, joy and kindness. Without these eggs, there would be a blanket of sadness covering the world on easter.

"Oh no. I simply cannot let this happen. I must go into the dark zone and find that old thief and retrive the 12 Eggs of Easter." said Ricky. He then made a loud gulp, mustered up some bravery and wiggled his way into the thick shrub leading into the Dark Zone.

The Easter Bunny Enters The Dark Zone

"Oh my Lord, what am I doing? Oh what am I doing? What am I doing here?" Ricky was scared out of his fur as all he could see around him was dieing old trees, dark gloomy eyes and the sound of anguish screams far ahead. "Gulp! I don't think I thought this one through. I have no idea where I am or where I should go to find that mean old fox." said the rabbit.

"Oh, so you are after the fox that ran pass here about 10 minutes ago?" said a voice.

"What the...hey, who is there? yes, the fox stole the twelve eggs of easter and I have to retrieve them else there will be no easter this year. Please, ca...can you help me find the fox?" asked Ricky.

Then right in front of the Easter bunny eyes the same fox that stole the eggs appeared. "Hey! it is you. how did you do that? Where are my eggs you thief?" asked the rabbit.

"Oh calm your hoppers down. I am a camelefox."

"A camel what?" asked the bunny.

"A camelefox you nitwit, not a camel. I can camouflage myself to hide in any kind of environment. That is why it seemed like I just appeared to you from no where. I was just using camouflage."

"Well, I am not interested in your hiding skills, I simply want my eggs back." said Ricky the Rabbit.

"Well, the eggs have been hidden and you will have to find them."

"Why would you do that. That is cruel." said Ricky.

"Cruel, cruel you say. Aren't you the one that always hide easter eggs and then ask the poor little kids to go find them. Some looking for hours without finding one simple stupid egg? Some being bitten by bees and other dumb insects insearch of your dumb easter eggs. Well, let's see how you like a taste of your own medicine. Go find em. They are in close proximity here. Don't go too far, you might get eaten by the Wagabeast." said the fox.

"Wait....what Wagabeast?"

"Don't worry, as long as you don't smell like a rabbit he won't eat you. Here spray some of this on you."

Ricky grabbed the bottle the fox gave him and sprayed furiously. "Oh Lord, that is the most offensive thing I have ever smelled in my life." said the rabbit as the fox was rolling on the ground dying from laughter. "What is this? Oh my God I can't breath..this smells so awful."

"Hoo hoo, ha aha ha hoo hoo too hoo...that is skunk extract....hoo hoo hoo, now you smell like skunk crap....guess what? There is no Wagabeast either." The fox had played a mean trick on the rabbit. The rabbit could not move for 5 minutes as the skunk scent seemed to have crippled his movement.



In Search of Eggs.

The rabbit was as mad as a raging bull when the fox confessed to what he did. But he had to find those eggs first. He started to look all over. "1, 2, 3, 4, here we go, 5, 6, 7, 8...ha haa, 9, 10, 11. Now where is that last egg?" The rabbit looked at the top of a shrub a distance away and saw a little purple thing in it. You stupid fox, I found my last egg and I am going to get it and get out of here. The rabbit dashed towards the shrub to collect the last egg.

"Hey, Hey rabbit. be careful because that shrub is at the end of a...." Before the fox could finish his sentence the rabbit was running so fast he couldn't stop and blasted through the shrub which was at the foot of a cliff and fell 300 feet to his doom while still catching after his fallen eggs.

"Oops! I tried to warn that stupid rabbit about that edge there but he just thinks he is always a speedster. Oh well, such is life." The fox started to make his way out of the Dark Zone when he heard loud roars. "Graaar! Graaar! Graaar!"

"What the heck is that?" asked the fox. I better speed up my exit out of here. Then the fox heard a loud voice.

"Fox not going anywhere. Bad fox make good bunny die. Now bad fox gets to be dinner of the Wagabeast." Then out of nowhere a very large hairy Gorilla like monster appeared. "Wagabeats eat fox." As the fox was just about to make his dash, the Wagabeast held him by the tail, lifted him up and swallowed him whole. "Buurp! Wagabeast like fox taste. Fox taste good." The wagabeast then disappeared into the Dark Zone.

There was no magical eggs that easter, Easter was cancelled and all the kids simply started playing candy crush on their tablets.
