Wocka, Wocka. This is your favorite fuzzy Fozzie Bear back again. Did you get my joke? Wocka, Wocka. Anyway I was wandering through the site trying to find something new to read and I stumbled upon this little gem of a story. It was originally written for the Out of this World Anthology from 2010.
We are introduced to one Adrian Jackson, an attractive man who is a little too focused on his thoughts of his partner Randy. Ahh, Adrian’s mind goes to painting a picture of a couple of opposites who fit well together, like Miss Piggy and Kermit, if you follow my drift. Anyway with his mind so consumed with thoughts of getting home to Randy he isn’t paying attention to the road in front of him. When a deer steps into the roadway, Adrian swerves to miss it and his car flies off the embankment into the trees below. Yeah, the deer makes it fine, but Adrian is another whole story.
When the story picks up again Adrian will find he is no longer in the world he remembers. He will see bits and pieces of the world he knows and loves. What is scarier is Randy visits him there but never stays with him. What is going on? Will he get back to Randy? Has he died and gone to heaven or hell? Well the answer to that is … Wocka, Wocka, Wocka. You didn’t think I would tell you now did you? Renee Stevens weaves a magical little tale here that is well deserving of a second read, or a first if you never read it. Fozzie Bear signing out.
