Many years ago, when I was studying creative writing, we were set the task of re-writing a classic tale from the POV of a minor character. I got my highest mark for that class by choosing to write the siege of Troy from the POV of the Wooden Horse (the poor thing basically had the runs). Much as I hate to admit it, the warped mind of Jeff Strand has one-upped me with this fantastic short story, told from the POV of a love-sick human-eating plant who has been grown by an evil scientist in his laboratory.
But I still had a nostalgic smile plastered across my face through this entire ten minute read.
