I’d checked out the box from all sides, even nosing it in a few places for special examination. I still couldn’t figure out what this thing was supposed to be.
Was it some new weird kind of bush?
Was it the beginning of a cave, popping up from the middle of the clearing?
Was it a trap?
I checked out the soft ground inside, pulling and tugging until I got it moved around a bit. Finally, I decided I’d just have to do what a rabbit’s got to do…I tried to eat it!
