"You must go... It is your time." an old ant told me.
"Thank you your honor." I said, honored, I was so eager to go I woke up my cousin, Theo, and brother, Antony.
"Come on guys!" They got dressed and we started to venture...
[[Next Page]] We saw a sign that said "R... i...g...h...t..." Hm, weird. We were strolling down the path, feet and feet of bush and hot sand, scorching sun, a drop a sweat dripped down. “How are you sweating we’re ants?” Antony said.
“SHHH! You’re breaking the fourth wall!” I yelled at him.
We continued strolling.
“Wait, which way are we supposed to go.” Theo said when I looked over and saw that there was a split in the path causing it to disperse into 2.
"Let's go right." Antony recommended.
"Nah I reckon left." Theo tried to persway.
"Lets go left." I decided.
We go left and we stumble apon a ant colony. Then we heard heavy footsteps. BOOM, BOOM.
"Wait, what is that?" Theo was concerned.
"ANT EATER! RUN!" I told them as we ran, but he caught up, and sucked us up.
[[restart]] "Lets go right." I chose. We go right.
"Oo, a dead lizard!" Antony said. "Dinner time." BOOM, BOOM.
"Is that an ant eater?" I questioned. "RUN!" We run as fast as we can and hide under a rock. The ant eater walked by not noticing.
"Phew, ok we can go out now." I told them. "Ah!" I jumped, I thought I saw a termite.
"Wait which way was the derection?" Theo asked.
[[Right]] We eventually make it back on track.
"It's getting late, I can't see the sun." I told them concerned.
"I thought I saw a peice of drift wood, we could crash there." Antony recommended.
"Nah, Lets just sleep under a rock." Theo also recomended.
[[Rock]][[Next Page]] We crawl in the piece of driftwood Theo recommended.
“Ah!” I said in agonie, a huge splinter was inside me, the pain was unbearable.
“Oh my gosh! Are you ok?!” Theo said concerned.
“Help me get it out.” I bellowed. “Ok, 1, 2, 3.” He counted down as he pulled.
“AHHH OW!” The pain was so bad, but soon, it died down, and I was fine. “Totally handled it like a man.” I joked. "Good night ya'll." I said.
"Good night." They said.
"What was th-" I said before being interupted by screaming.
"GUYS?!" I said
"T-e-r-m-." Theo said before being eaten. "THEO!" I said.
"ANTONY ARE YOU OK?!" . . . No response.
"Are yo-." I was eaten, by termites.
[[restart]] We go to a rock and go under.
"Goodnight ya'll" I said to them.
"Good night." They said.
"What is that?" Antony said.
"What?" Theo said.
"Is that crawling?" I said. "Lets go out and see." I said.
"SCORPION!" I heard Theo scream.
"GUN EM DOWN BOYS!" I said as I pulled out my cowboy revolver and shot em. We all shot him about 6 times till he callapsed.
"Jeez." Theo said.
"Yeah." Antony said. I agreed, that was gory.
[[next page]] We continued down the path.
"Help!" What voice seemed to belong to a young female.
"What is that?" Theo said.
"I think its a girl." Theo said.
"Then we have to help!" I said. We followed the voice to her.
"Hey!" I said
"Leave her alone!" There was a spider picking on her. The spider took one glance and ran.
"Thank you!" She said
"No problem." I said nervously. She is so pretty, I thought.
"Wow, your p-." I said before being cut off by Theo;
"There back!." He said. "Uh oh." The girl said.
[[Negotiate?]] I pull out my revolver and shoot one, he falls and it infiriates the other one, so he jumps at Theo and bites him.
"NOOOO!" Me and Antony said. I shoot him multible times till he falls.
"Heh, heh." The last spider chuckles.
"You think this is funny?!" I said intimidatingly. I shoot, he dodges. "Im not like the others." He said. Antony shoots, he dodges. "He-." He said while I shoot him while his gaurd is down. "H-o-w." He says before collapsing on the ground.
"Im so sorry." The girl said. "My name is Antgula." She said while hugging me for confort. "Hey, lets get something to eat im sure your starving, it will make you feel better."
[[next Page]]"H-hey, guys." I said with a fake smile, I think they could tell and each of them jumped at us and bit us. The venom took over our bodys. We died.
[[restart]] My stomach was rumbling, I haven’t eaten all day. I think the others were also hungry, so we began looking for food, every bush, corner, cacti, we checked it all. About 30 minutes in of searching I stumbled upon the most delicious, scrumptious looking lizard.
“Guys! I found something.” I yelled. It was glorious, the eyes were popping out of its head, organs ripped out of its body.
“Yummy.” Antony said, drooling. We began eating it. Me and Antgula accidently pick up the same peice, she drops it and blushes. I smile at her. "Guys just get together already uggghhh." Antony said. We both went silent. "Do you want to?" I said. "Yes." Antgula said. "Finally." Antony releaved. Some time passed and we finished every, last, bite, I’m talking every piece of flesh/scale, every organ down to the bone.
“Dang.” I said in disbelief.
“That… Was awesome!” Antony yelled. “Holy! We literally ate the whole thing omg.” He said patting his belly.
"Jeez, guys." Antgula said.
[[Next page]]We settled on a place to stay. Some time passed... We started our own colony, Antgula the queen. Im the ONLY drone. Antony second in command, and a whole lot of eggs. Life was like any other ant colony, we have a shrine for Theo, everyone here has there own job, everyone plays there part, everyone, is happy.
