“This,” he said, sweeping his arm through the air, “is what ignorance does.”
He stood tall, a true leader to this people. His face was grim and solemn. His kingdom was in tatters. Everything had been destroyed by the Teether; a terrible monster that destroyed everything in his path.
“We will rebuild,” our leader said. “It will take time, but it won’t be impossible. We will start with the castle.”
One of the soldiers ran up to him.
“Sir!” he exclaimed. “The Teether…he is here!”
The people screamed and ran in chaotic terror.
“Run for it!” One of them screamed.
They ran to and fro in panic. Then, over the horizon, they saw it. A terrible monster, with drool dripping from its ravenous mouth, bounded over to the kingdom. It growled and started to destroy the village.
Then the door opened.
“Uh oh,” The leader said. Standing in the door was his mother.
She looked at the messed up living room in shock. Pillows and blankets, pots and pans, sticks from the backyard. It took her awhile to find her words.
“Jackson Tyler Anderson!” She scolded the leader. “What is all of this?”
“Well,” the timid 12 year old leader said, “we were playing a game and things kind of got out of hand.”
“Don’t get mad at him, mommy,” Little six year old Sarah pleaded.
“We helped him,” little five year old Bryson said.
“And why is Mathew in his dinosaur costume?”
One year old Mathew walked over to mom. She picked him up.
“He’s the Teether,” Sarah said.
“He is the monster that plaggees our land,” Bryson said.
“Plagues the land?”
“Our brave leader was going to lead us to victory and free our kingdom from the Teether,” Sarah said.
“And who is your leader?”
“Jackson,” she said.
“So, you’re the brave leader?”
“Well…prepare yourself leader for the Teether is not alone! I, Momzilla, always help the Teether! And I will help him destroy your kingdom!”
Jackson smiled. “Then consider it war, monster!”
She growled and started to chase after them with Mathew on her hip.
The children screamed with glee and ran from the monsters.
And so, the battle for the Living Room began.
