I truly enjoyed reading A Boy and His Dog. This short story created very strong imagery in my head. I have missed this part that fictional stories can create in the imagination. Here below I will list the original ending of the story, followed by the alternative ending that I create. Please Let me know what you guys think!
“She got a pouty look on her face, “if you love me, you’ll come on!” I couldn’t make it alone out there without him. I knew it. If i loved her, She asked me, in the boiler, do you know what love is……”
My alternative ending
“She got a pouty look on her face, “if you love me, you’ll come on!” I couldn’t make it alone out there without him. I knew it. If i loved her, She asked me, in the boiler, do you know what love is.?
As I turned to face her, she put a knife right against my neck. I was in complete shock. “I will murder us both” she said to me with a craze look in her eye. “We either move on together or we both leave this planet” As I felt the knife digging deeper into my neck, I saw out of the corner of my eye that blood has stood up and leaned down in attack position. I moved my body so her back faced blood and within a second, blood pounced on back and dug his teeth into her neck. As she released me, I turned to see her legs kicking in the air as Blood used every ounce of his strength to end her life. Her leg movement came to a sudden stop as blood worked his way to heart.
Never in my life have I seen such an event of loyalty. I was never going to leave Blood behind. Nothing could get between my relationship with my dog.
