The lighter side of reality, chapter 4 MONSTER!! MONSTER!!

Category: The back yard | Posted: Thu Dec 18, 2014 3:00 pm

MONSTER!! MONSTER!! The words penetrated the door followed by incessant pounding and terrified screaming that could only have come from one Mr. Mouse. The mouse, a close friend of Mr Monk, spent the evening hours exploring as many corridors, caves and "bottomless" pits as he could find, filling pages of his "Map of the world". Mr. Monk rushed to open the door. The mouse fell into the room. "The Door!! The Door!! Bar the door!!" The mouse screamed as he rolled across the floor. Mr. Monk dropped the bar across the door just as a loud thud shook the now secure entryway. The chipmunk stepped back and helped his friend to his paws. "What have you found Mr. Mouse?" Inquired the chipmunk. "It was dark and as I walked around a corner, I ran right into its mouth." "Its tongues, two of them ran across my face! Terrifying to say the least." "Then I ran into one of its huge teeth as I turned to escape down the corridor." "I could hear the monster behind me banging the sides of the tunnel." "It was all I could do to get here and safety." The tea was ready and Mr. Monk poured some into a polished acorn cup and handed it to friend. The security of Mr. Monk's home had a calming effect and the mouse was soon relaxed enough to hold the cup. The chipmunk disappeared briefly and soon returned with some fresh acorn muffins. Together they looked into one of wise old owl's books soon identified the underground denizen as a snake. The two friends decided it was best to mark the map and when they found it safe, wall up that part of the tunnel. The flickering acorn lamps made their shadows dance on the wall. The two friends talked well into the night, in the underground realm, a couple of steps away from reality.

No matter the size, creatures still fear snakes! This was great Jerry.

By the way I noticed some Microsoft Word characters messing up your text a bit so I did my best to clear them up.

Thank you Frank, Like the denizens of the night these refugees from the Word factory drop in at the most inopportune time.
