  • The Dancing Bear
    growled and the boy felt something primal coiling in his belly He looked again The bear stood entirely still in the centre of the ring just watching It was gaunt and its pelt hung off it like a shadow bunched loose around the legs hanging deadweight from the hips and shoulders It looked so forlorn The boy half imagined something like pleading in its eyes The handler growled again low and urgent from the abyss of his throat A burr of icy prickles writhed inside the boy N no he stammered Maybe not It s just a bear I guess I was wrong The handler grinned showing all his teeth It was an awful sight Good lad he said He lowered the boy to the ground and turned back to his charge At once the bear jigged and limped into action hopping from one leg to the other The boy found himself shaking A nervous hand fell on his shoulders He looked up into the face of the lady beside him She was trembling too Don t worry about it she whispered I was wrong as well A large damp patch had flooded down her skirts and curdled on the sawdust floor Isn t it amazing she whispered her voice strained with fear how much they look like people All around the audience agreed with nods and fervent murmurs And in the ring the handler jabbed with his cane again and again and the bear danced ever onwards About Simon Sylvester Simon Sylvester is a writer teacher and occasional filmmaker His first novel The Visitors was published by Quercus in 2014 going on to win the Book Box prize and the Guardian Not The Booker prize The Visitors has been a Book of the Month for Waterstones Scotland and part of W H Smith s Fresh Talent 2015 Simon s short stories have been published by dozens of magazines and journals and he has written more than a thousand flash stories on Twitter He lives in Cumbria with the painter Monica Metsers and their daughter Isadora Mail Web More Posts 1 Comments comments Prev Whodunnit The Telephone Museum Next Do Not Climb Related Posts Carina Brought Down the Moon Foreign Film The Thousandth Climb Litro TV Recent Posts Bringing Up Baby In the Night Time Before the Sun Rises at the Gate Theatre True Love in Los Angeles A R BY ANY OTHER NAME The Echo Travelling in Fiji The Litro Blog View Archive 11th February 2016 Litro 149 The Love issue Letter from the Editor By Eric Akoto Love we spend our lives craving it in one form or another searching for it and talking about it Its meaning is felt more than it is clearly expressed Some call it the greatest virtue Continue reading 9th December 2015 Litro 148 The Going Home issue Letter from the Editor By Eric Akoto This month in Litro 148 we explore the notion of what Going Home means to us Is it
