On my way to work
“Come on, come on…” I mutter while I wait for the lights to change. I look up with boredness hoping that I would finally get to work in time. But instead of seeing the peaceful sky I am surprised to see a furry, tall creature. My bushy moustache wobbles while my knees knock together. It’s sharp red toenails hang off the edge of the new pavement while his hungry, enormous eyes stare at me. Bits of leaves and twigs stick to his stomach like a little child on their first day of school. “Why hello there” he says in a smug voice that makes my pearly white teeth chatter. As if it was a grumpy troll a thought storms through my brain. Will he hurt me?
Waiting on the crossing lights to change, I see a super colossal shadow heading towards me. As I was trying to hide, a car pulled up to the crossing lights and the driver had gasps. I did not even dare to look back. “Come on come on” I mutter as I wait for the lights to change. Oh oh. The super colossal monster stands right next to me. Bye bye world I think to myself as the monster which looks 50 times bigger than the hulk says in a low voice “Sup Greenhead.” That was my code name for NASA. How did he know? “Hello?? Are you deaf or what?” Shaking, I reply, “Good morning whoever you are.” “What you don't know my name?” Who could he be? I think to myself. “I’m Maximus, man.” “Oh” I reply. The crossing lights changed. Both of us have a NASA suitcase.
Praying for the lights to change, I check my watch hoping I’ve still got time to reach work, before my hot headed boss would spit on me with anger. Soon enough I feel the air becoming cold, and a dark shadow starts craning over me. ‘What in the world is going on’ I start thinking. Long hot pink nails come forward beside me. Large feet are attached to the nails, and white furry legs go up a kilometre. A NASA briefcase was in the grip in the ‘things’ hand. I realize it is my friend from the NASA rocket launch. “Good morning Jessica, I thought I’d never see you again,” I say. With that we walk of to the other side of the road together.
As I stand on the pavement ready to cross the road I suddenly encounter enormous blue feet right next to me. “AHHH,” I screech. Slowly I stare up at his hair covered face. My eyes were about to pop out when I saw his face he had ears that were on his forehead, he had light blue eyes a tiny mouth and a long pointy nose like a witch. The snow coloured fur on his body probably meant he was from a cold place. My eyes scan over the rest of his body. He was holding a briefcase and the large letters on the bag spelt NASA MONSTER RESEARCH. He had pink toenails and a black circle on his torso. The sun shone on his watch reflecting on me and blinding me for a second. Seconds later when the crossing opened, we walk over the gray road. “See ya,” he says in a low voice.
“Morning Sherlyn,” came the deep rumbling voice from beside me. I turn around to find myself near a huge, snow white monster. Hesitating I YELL “ Umm Good Morning Fred.” The traffic light seems to be taking forever. “Hurry up traffic light,” I mutter to myself. Whenever I am near Fred I feel awkward everyone stares, babies cry, girls scream... It’s crazy. My lips are getting dry and I start sweating more than a kid after doing cross country. The traffic light finally turns green. “Took you long enough,” I whisper. I start jogging past Fred but he is to fast. After a while I find myself hiding in a rubbish bin in an alleyway. Could this be my life? I wonder. I decide that Fred is probably already gone to work so I get out of the bin and leave. But I am wrong he is there waiting for me to come out. There are these little boys crowded around him patting him like he was a dog. I can’t blame them his fur is really soft but he was not even close to being a dog he was a GIANT MONSTER!!! Parents start screaming and grabbing their kids away while giving me disgusted looks.. I feel so embarrassed but it isn’t my fault, it’s his. Bravely I say “Fred, I need to tell you something,” but he rudely interrupts me by saying ”Sherlyn, STOP distracting me I got to go to work!’
