More Scary Monster Rock: Continued…


The first part of this story is posted on my previous blog…

All the scary monsters got out of the way as the rock rolled by, gnashing it’s teeth and grumbling: “I’m coming to get you…AND EAT YOU UP!!!

The scary monsters, once the size of megalithic monstrosities, giant lumbering two-story terrors; shrunk as the eons and ages and geological stages passed. The T-Rex shrank into a wolverine and the Eatumupulus reduced into a bridge troll. Some Pterodactyls evolved down to Bats in the Belfry and some into Dark Elf Bolt Fairies. Giant saber tooth gorillas evolved into tiny Imps and Djinns. Some evolved good and some evolved naughty, but they evolved and evolved! Pegasus became a dragonfly, Triceratops metamorphisized  into Gremlins in the closets and Goblins under the bed and demons peeping in the window.

Some Naughty monsters turned into things that went BUMP-A-WUMP-BUMPITY-BUMP at night!

But scary as these things all are, the scariest of all things is the billion year old rock: “The Scary Monster Rock” the scary monsters called it. “I’m coming to get you,” it grumbled. Never shrinking; GRUMBLE-BUMBLE-STUMBLE-SPLAT! Never evolving, never changing. But do you know what happens when you tumble for a billion years! You get really hungry, very hungry indeed: “I’m coming to get you and eat you up!” Yes, the Scary Monster Rock was very-very-very hungry!

The Scary Monster Rock is Rolling up your street: “I’ve been to China and Africa and India and I’m very, very hungry!” It’s getting closer to your house: GRUMBLE-BUMBLE-STUMBLE-SPLAT! Onto your porch: “I’m a billion years old, I’m not scared of anything and I’m ever so very HUNGRY!”

The Scary Monster Rock rolled under your bed: “I’m coming to get you and eat you up!” Listen, listen; teeth gnash-gnash-gnashing, the Scary Monster Rock has never been this hungry!

The Scary Monster Rock rolled into your closet; here it breathing, belching, GURGLE-BLURGLE-GLUMP-GLUMP, The Scary Monster Rock has never been so hungry, “I’m coming to get you,” it snarled, “and eat you up!
