Felicia And The Giant Essay

1677 words - 7 pages

As Felicia walked down the dimly lit street she tried to come up with a convincing argument to explain why she was coming home at eleven thirty seven and a half hours past her five o’clock curfew. She walked up to the massive wooden door took a deep breath opened the door and was immediately pulled into the tight embrace she knew was waiting just behind the door that led to her beautiful home. Then the embrace loosened and she slowly regained her breath and she was finally free from the choke hold altogether. “Where have you been?” Cried her mother “I’ve been worried sick about you!” she sat there and after a moment her face slowly regained a natural color. ...view middle of the document...

My jaw dropped open and I started to laugh historically. “Giant! Ha you almost had me there for a minute, this is real funny Mary! Great sound effects by the way! Where are you? Come on out, I know that it’s you!” After a while I began to get annoyed so I started to walk away when, once again the giant started to talk to me “please don’t leave, I’m sorry if I alarmed you, and I don’t know who Mary is but my name is joy.” I started to laugh again, “ok Mary cut it out it was funny for a while but now it’s getting old!” Then there was this big gust of wind and the sky went black and out of nowhere there was this massive thing looming over me like a giant cloud and all of the sudden I started to doubt that this was just some practical joke that Mary was trying to pull, because Mary was connected, but not this connected! “Ok,” I said to the massive thing that was looming over my head, “I know you’re not Mary, and you’re name is Joy, but what are you?” “Have you not been paying any attention?” it said to me” I’m a giant and the last female giant at that!” it, I mean she said to me with a little pride in her voice “the last female on earth and on Bon Swagen Fluper!” I know I know, what the heck is Bon Swagen Fluper? Well we’ll get to that in a minute, but anyhow, Joy looked down on me as if expecting something out of me, the only problem was I had no idea of what she was expecting me to do! So I coughed and shuffled my feet a little and coughed again and twiddled my thumbs a bit and then I finally said” That’s nice but um, where exactly is Bon Swagen Fluper?” “She laughed and said “Oh it’s in the next galaxy to the right!” “Oh of course” I said as if I had any idea of what she was talking about, which of course I didn’t. Then a little awkwardly I asked “So ….. What happened to the rest of the giantesses?” That wasn’t exactly a good subject to bring up at that particular moment. Her eyes lost their sparkle and her face was pulled into a tight frown, it was like somebody flipped an invisible switch that sent her from friendly giant into depressed endangered species. “oh sorry” I said even more awkwardly “it’s ok,” she said after awhile “you didn’t do anything wrong, the other Giantesses were killed by a disease that wiped out the entire female population, all except for me , you see I caught the disease but I made a remarkable recovery , after that everybody wanted me to tell them how I did it so that we could save the few women who were still alive, but I didn’t know how I did it and after awhile they got tired of hearing me say over and over that I didn’t have any idea why I was still alive, and there begging turned to yelling and violence and I was banished from my country and sent here to live under North...
