Our Hero vs The Monster (or when the Nut-ster meets aNut-eater)
(A Special Post for Sunday Scribblings)
Our story begins with Our Hero out to inspect His kingdom with all of it's average views.
Just one average view.....
Little did he know his average day with his average views would turn into an assault by a demon who would assail him from out of nowhere.
"Get back," he said, "Away!!!"
But the creature was relentless in it's mission to overtake Our Hero. The struggle ensues...
Having physically subdued Our Hero, the satanic monster now mentally casts it's spell using it's mysterious Evil Eye. "You are getting sleepy....very sleepy."
And the creature shows it's merciless nature and turns around and applies the coup de grace....a blast from the Evil Butt
It comes back to inspect it's helpless prey. "Yes, he is dead. My work here is done," it hearkens with satisfaction
It goes into a strange post-sacrifice ritual and it prays to it's gods of the netherworld. All the while gloating over it's conquest over that which was good.
But wait!!....is our story over?
"Must drink....must get drink," he hoarsely groans
Dazed, mesmerized, and gassed, Our Hero gathers all of his strength and courageously crawls to the pristine pools that only he knows of. They flow with the magical elixirs to break the spell that has been cast upon him.
"Where is it?!?," Our Hero exclaims after amazingly recovering all of his supernatural strength
"Drats!!&*$#@...Foiled again," the now spineless intruder mutters as it scurries away. It knows full well that it had better run or the full wrath of Our Hero will bear down upon it.
It runs off to hide in it's Sinister Cave where it will live out the rest of it's days.....forever fearful of coming out and encountering Our Hero again!!!
And Our Hero's average world with it's average views are once again returned to peace and freedom from such unwanted predators as The Monster.
Our Hero - played by the Nutster himself
The Monster - played by an intrepid little chipmunk that popped out of nowhere and made my day
