This is an excellent short story from the American author, Joseph Miles, which is based on a couple of true stories: a chimpanzee attack in Sierra Leone, and an alligator attack on a dog in Florida. Our hero has moved to New York City, in search of the solitude he requires to continue his work on his book of virtues. His world is turned upside down when his apartment is broken into, and he is forced to call upon his landlord, SC, to repair his broken window. SC has an extreme vision of the future, which disrupts the thought processes of our hero. Until, that is, it becomes true… Jungle Rains is a very stimulating, and philosophical short story, that also abounds in a subtle humour, which makes it a great addition to this series of online stories.
