Harriet the One-Eyed Coney

February 4, 2006

Harriet the One-Eyed Coney ran away from home.

She ran away not out of planning, but out of instinct. An instinct that might well save the world.

Harriet did not know that she was a test subject for a scientific experiment to create the deadliest living weapons known to man.

Harriet did not know the names of the men who had performed testing on her, even while providing her a warm, safe shelter.

Harriet did not know why she had felt the urge to flee, only that it had arisen, and must be obeyed.

And Harriet did not know that in the grim dark days of the future there lived a man – Ripper McDougall – who lived only for the sheer visceral pleasure of hunting and killing any type of long-eared, short-tailed, burrowing mammal.

Harriet did not know that her creators had hired this man to bring back their experiment, or remove it from the picture entirely.

Harriet did not know these things because Harriet was a rabbit.

So run, little bunny! Run far and run fast!

Because what you don’t know can definitely hurt you.
