The fight – A short story (ok that’s stretching it..:) )


I just found something I wrote in college… One of my class assignments was to go to the local mall, observer for a while and write about something I saw there. Here’s what I came up with.

The Fight

You probably didn’t read about the fight, but I’m sure it was in the newspaper. The fight took place on May 17, 1991 at the market Square Mall. The fighters glared at each other and the tension grew. The first fighter charged out of his corner and latched on to his opponents throat, throwing him to the floor. As the two began to roll, a crowd gathered. A small, future contender could be heard barking out his approval from the side line. The fighters continued to roll, pawing and biting each other. As the fight drew on both fighters began to slow. Their blows became sluggish and their tongues began to drag. Finally, their violent tumbling stopped and each one pulled himself to his corner and collapsed. tugging at his dad’s pants, a boy could be heard saying, “Daddy, Daddy! I like the brown one.” Patting his boys head, the dad turned to face the Humane Society Representative and asked, “How much did you say these puppies are?”
