Authors Confession: I wasnt going to finish this. (guilty whimper)
After my computer died and took all my hard work with it I just couldnt get back in the groove. Id almost finished this chapter and couldnt seem to rewrite it well enough to satisfy me. Very depressing. Fortunately, my sister found out and basically stood over my shoulder and made me finish. I feel much better now that done and hope youll enjoy it too.
Oh, what now? Ben groaned.
A crushing wave ripped around the bend and seeped into every corner of the street, soaking scrambling pedestrians. Ben tensed as a shadow fell over the fleeing crowd. Blocking out the sun was an enormous metal mermaid with a water carafe tucked between her shoulder and chin, riding a on the currents it seemed to be creating. Bens brain was frozen in total awe. He grasped fruitlessly for a course of action as salt-water gurgled about his ankles, while the giant wave-maker rumbled past him. He didnt think hed see anything this huge before, save for Humongousaur ofcourse!
