THE LOUD NOISE
It was a weird night,stormclouds outside looked almost green in the short flash of brightness given off by the lightning.Hamtaro shifted his wheight on a bed of wood chips.He couldn't sleep.At that exact moment, he heard a single gunshot.
A blood curdleing scream ecohed through the stormy darkness.Hamtaro shot up from his bed and lept down his emergancy escape tunnel,careful not to wake Laura,and outside.He landed on Brandy's head,even during a storm that dog was too lazy to move into his doghouse.Hamtaro left without thanking Brandy for the use of his head.He ran as fast as his small legs would go.'What happened,'thought the golden hamster,'gotta go faster'
He reached the front of the club house and saw Boss,standing in the rain,looking down at his paws.he kept moving his lips."Boss,what's going on!"cried Hamtaro,grabing Boss by the shoulders."I-I-i didn't,I mean,"Hamtaro left Boss without waiting to hear his words.As he turned the corner he saw Bijou
laying on the ground.Her snow white fur soaked with blood,a bullet lodged in her chest.Hamtaro's eyes filled with tears,as he held Bijou's cold paw.Much to his surpise,she clutched his hand as hard as she could."Hamtaro,"said the ivory furred hamster,"I've always loved you."And with that,her paw let go and fell to her side.
She was dead.Hamtaro Stood up and looked up at the stormy skies,and he screamed in anguish,"WWHHHYYY!" he turned to Boss and felt an emotion that he had never felt before...Resentment."Hamtaro,it wasn't me,I had finally worked up the courage to pop the question,b-but some stranger came out of the forest,an-and just shot Bijou." Boss was on his knees now,Hamtaro stared blankly at the feild hamster.
"Get away from here."growled Hamtaro. Boss looked at him and said," I mean it.I didn't do it,I LOVED HER WHY WOULD I DO THIS! HUH!" Boss was hysterical.Hamtaro left without another word.
