The Quest

Sir Duncan eyed the pier, the last leg of the dangerous quest. It was his mission – and his alone – to deliver the magic potion to the queen. He would not fail.

He sprinted, unsurprised by the appearance of the Kraken, its appendages smashing down, raining water as if from a hurricane. His heart beat fast as he darted hither and yon, avoiding the crushing blows. He fought off the cephalopod, leaving the empty-handed monster behind.

Sir Duncan knelt before the queen. “Your sunscreen, m’lady.”

Angela smiled as her son jumped in the lake, ready to battle the Loch Ness monster.
