Ring by Peter McCann  
RING. RING. RING.

“Hello?”

“What’s your favorite animal?”

“Excuse me?”

“Your favorite animal, what is it?”

“Who is this?”

“You should know that it is considered rude to answer a question with another. Now, your favorite animal; what is it?”

“If you don’t tell me who this is, I’m going to hang up.”

“What is your favorite animal?”

CLICK.

RING. RING. RING. RI…

“Who is this!?”

“Me. Now tell me what I want to know. What is your favorite animal?”

“I’m not going to play this game anymore. If you call me again, I’m going to call the police.”

“Good, you have enough brain power to make threats. Then perhaps you can use that small pinkish space-waster in your skull to answer my question. What is your favorite animal?”

CLICK.

RING. RING. RING. RING.

“Hi, this is Bobby, I can’t come to the phone right now, but if you’ll just leave a message, I’ll try to get back to you as soon as I can. Thank you.”

BEEP.

“Hi, Bobby. I’M GOING TO FUCKING KILL YOU, DO YOU UNDERSTAND! CALL THE POLICE, CALL YOUR DADDY, CALL YOUR GOD, IT DOESN’T MATTER! YOU’RE DEAD, DEAD, DEAD. I’M GOING TO SLICE YOUR SKIN AND MAKE YOU FEEL ME AND YOU AND ME AND ME AND ME AN…”

BEEP.

RING. RING.

“H…hello?”

“What’s your favorite animal, Bobby?”

“Giraffe.”

“Thank you.”

CLICK.
