Buttercup

Sitting next to the corn feeder, waiting for it, is the World’s fattest most juicy pig. Teeth sticking out of her mouth, dirt covering her body, and her mouth on the side of her head. Our PH (professional hunter) said that he named her Buttercup, saying that her dirty back matched the color of the yellow flower.

She jumped at the sound of the corn feeder and began stuffing her face with as much corn as possible.

Suddenly I dropped my binocular and it made a large ”crack” sound as it hit the floor of the blind, and at that moment she looked up and saw my glowing face in the dark and in right then I could see the hatred she had for me and she could sense the love I had for her.

  1. I like the way you kept Suzanne Collins’ “Buttercup” as the name of your subject. Like Collins, you used a magic three of vivid details: “Teeth sticking out of her mouth, dirt covering her body, and his mouth on the side of her head.”

    I wonder if you meant “her mouth on the side of her head” instead of “his”?
