She screamed in horror and ran into the forest on facing the Swamp Monster. Little did she know, that deep down, he was nothing but a lonely soul, wishing for a friend…

    Aw, this makes me feel bad for the guy. (Not sure if I’d feel bad enough to stick around, though!)

    • Nea · October 6, 2013

      Hahaha! Maybe if i wrote some more about him, you would like to stick around..:D

    I can relate to this…

    • Nea · October 6, 2013

      I hope you mean the girl and not the lonely monster..

  3. Draug419 · October 6, 2013

    awww he needs a hug!

    • Nea · October 6, 2013

      Aww! Willing to give him one 😉 ?

    So sad for the lonely un-soul…

    • Nea · October 6, 2013

      Ooh Un-soul! Haha

    Being misjudged because of appearances was exactly the same vibe I was going for in my post, too. I think it is an important point to bring up and that you did a very good job doing so. Congratulations on a job well done! 🙂

    • Nea · October 6, 2013

      Thank you so much Cobbie! This is my first challenge..I am humbled to see such a great response on this! I would love to see how you put forth the same point in 33 words..

    Oh how we can be so judgemental on appearances! Good write! Thanks for linking up!

    • Nea · October 6, 2013

      Thank you very much! 😉

    I had the same thought as you and cobbie….this poor misunderstood monster.

    • Nea · October 7, 2013

      Many people thinking on the same lines only suggest that there are so many misunderstood people out there…:(

  8. Ivy (Mommy Dourest) · October 7, 2013

    Awww. Poor sad, misunderstood monster. Your post almost makes me want to hug him. Almost.

    • Nea · October 7, 2013

      Aww! The monster will be almost happy to know that 😉

    You realize that beast is not a dog? If he takes a bath, I might give him a hug 😀

    • Nea · October 9, 2013

      If you hug the beast, he might turn into a dawg 😀
      I like where this story is going..;)
