Today's #flashfiction The Littlest Tyrannosaurus Rex

“I fell into a burning ring of fire,
I went down, down, down as the flames went higher
And it burns, burns, burns,
The ring of fire, the ring of fire.”
Dante's Inferno* #quote

Happy Fourth of July everyone! And fifth if you're reading this then! And subsequently whatever day you're reading it be it the sixth, seventh etc. Anyway onto the flash fiction!

The Littlest Tyrannosaurus Rex

         Teddy Tyrannosaurus was the littlest tyrannosaurus in his pack. He got bullied by all the other ones. The parents wanted him to learn how to be tough on his own so they didn't help. So he got bullied and bullied. Teddy didn't like being bullied. He ran away from his pack to live on his own. Poor little tyrannosaurus!
         The dinosaurs of his pack did miss him, but in the brutal ancient age their culture decided that someone as wimpy as the littlest tyrannosaurus couldn't be considered one of them. If he ran away so be it. Years passed without them ever seeing the littlest tyrannosaurus.
         However one day while they hunted a tyrannosaurus twice the size of any tyrannosaurus before, a giant among giants, kicked them away a stole their food. The littlest tyrannosaurus had grown into the biggest tyrannosaurus and laughed as he bullied them.
         Teddy's old bullies bolted and he treated himself to the bounty of the day. In a few million years he would become part of the biggest oil well and his bullies the littlest.
