You Have One Message, by Johann Lux

(F.F.F. Website Story)

At the zoo with my daughter, we stood at the gorilla pit watching apes in the distance seated like statues embraced by sunlight.

I handed my daughter my cell phone so she could photograph the animals. To my horror the arm of a Silver-back reached up and snatched the phone from my daughter’s hands.

Zoo keepers with rifles arrived. The crowds laughed as the Silver back pressed the phone to its head.

“Give it back!” my daughter shouted and the gorilla handed me my phone.

Back at home, I checked my answering machine: ”Please help; free me” was the only message.
