I am a teenage donut lining up for the slaughter like the rest of my fellow inmates at the Barbra Café. I was next in line after Strawberry Selene was mercilessly devoured by a blonde haired little child while Chocolate Carlson was slowly tortured by his geeky mother’s chomping jaws. I could hear their screams and cries for help as I sat there in silence waiting for my approaching doom. With each passing footsteps going by I knew my time had come when a passing, baseball capped, man strolled into the café and ordered me, Vanilla Vance. He took me to a table by the window and spread out a newspaper, as he went to the coffee counter for his cream and sugar I recalled when I was first taken out of that dough I came from. I was molded, massaged, and made into my distinctive shape by my guardian. Then I was placed in a heavenly Jacuzzi to become firm and tone and the best part is when I was taken out and spread with the vanilla icing.

I remember when I and Glazed Gloria went to the bakery prom before she was transferred to a different café. I’ll never forget that night I was called to babysit the munchkins for Jelly Jane and Joe. However those days are gone now and my death awaits me; I wonder if there’s an after life for donuts? 

But just as I pondered over these questions the man was about to take a bite out of me! But before his grisly jaws swarmed over he became distracted for a brief second and before I knew it I was flying out of his hand. A large yellow Labrador had gotten into the café and pounced on him, sending me hurling to the floor where the dog ate me in two gulps... It’s a dog eat donut world out there.
