Happy, happy, happy, that’s all the little strawberry jelly filled donut could feel. He was laying under the warm heater inside Walter’s Donut shop with his Mother and Father, when it finally happened… A nice family walked in Walter’s Donut shop, as they browsed the selection of donuts, the smallest of the bunch stopped at the mother donut, he stared with hungry eyes. ‘That one, that one!” the little boy screamed to his mother. “Those look excellent, we’ll take two!” the mother announced happily. Walter quickly grabbed the tongs and headed for the mother and father, the little donut screamed, begging Walter not to take his parents, but within the next couple of seconds, his parents were gone. He stared them down, continuously screaming as the family took their seat. He watched in horror, the one thing he didn’t want to see, he looked up and saw his mother in the little boy’s hand. Munch after munch, bite after bite, the little donut watched his whole family getting consumed, he screamed for help, but no one’s there..
