Well, you know me, ever adventurous, and brave! I made it my mission to find out just what it was that Uncle Wille had heard. I've been perusing these mean old city streets, and alleyways for nearly all of my eleven years, and I know just about every hiding place there is! I walked the long path so many times, I knew it like the back of my hand..well except that one long waterway that has long since dried up..no one goes down there, there's nothin' there..but a bunch of dirt and leaves, and moss..right?
Fast Freddie, and lazy Sal think they can scare me into not going, but the stories they made up about a monster taking skulls as trophys, sounds like a hoax to me..ha..a monster taking skulls.
.he hasn't met me,.... yet!
I have traveled a long way, and went down the long winding lane, and into the entrance of the underground waterway, and stopped in my tracks! I saw these two signs..hmm looks pretty suspicious to me, It could be a practical joke played by Fast Freddie, and Lazy Sal, those two are always up to no good, and to think they would try and scare poor old Uncle Willie..why that just ruffles my feathers!! ... To put it nicely.
hmmm trolls..who ever heard of a real life troll? not me for sure, I heared tell of em in books, and such, but I don't read a lot, so I'm thinkin' they never really were real..just somethin' somebody dreamed up, you know, like Cinderella, or Snow white, and them stories. but Uncle Wille did say he heard something down here, at the end of the lane, where the old waterway used to run. Now would be a good time to have Rattus, and TeaRat along with me, They know their way around these old waterways, or Moses, his size alone would scare off a monster of any size..well, till they realized he's just an old softy.
I'd better do a little more investigating!
oh wait! what was that? I heard something, up there, behind the tall tall hill..these fools have my mind running in circles, I am imagining a giant troll there behind the the hill..could it be? was that a baby in the bush crying?, it's getting dark, and all the shadows are starting to look like rows of skulls..dangitt! dangitt *&#$% ggrrr Now they're making me curse, and I promised not to curse no more..I promised Pipitt, and Bebe!
What's that fluttering? why it's nothin' more than a pretty little dragonfly fairy, taking some sweet nectar...I knew it, it ain't no troll...jjeesshhh wwhheeeww what a relief, all that fuss over a monster, and it turns out to be a fairyfly!.
.GRRRR BOINK &%$$ JEESSHHH^$* PLUISHH#*&GRRRGGGRR
And just then, out of the corner of my eye, I saw them..can you believe it? Trolls really are real, Uncle Wille DID hear something, and Fast Freddie DID see something..and it IS a troll..it's a whole family of Trolls, but they're not scarey, and not even mean, heck, I think I scared them more than they scared me!
Everyone, meet our newest friends..the Frumpalumps from under the hill! I'm so glad I cleared that mystery up! tomorrow, I'm going to bring Uncle Wille here to meet them! Who knows, maybe one day, I can bring them to Nowhere, and introduce them to all my Nowhere friends.
