Today is 12-1 so I decided on page 121.
There’s the snow bank. I’m tossed into flight, and Meathook stumbles.
The shield lands hard on the street. It’s all balck ice. I’m about to flip, but then-
‘GOTCHA, DUDE!’ June shouts.
I look down – June has me by my wrist. I lunge and grab Quint’s hand. Quint swings then clings to Dirk. ‘Human action geek chain!’ I exclaim. ‘I love it!’
A vast creature – with the head of an anglerfish and dozens of fins along its sinewy – is “swimming” in the sky over Eerie-on-Sea. It has two huge flippers, a low-slung mouth filled with tusks, and gigantic ichthyosaur eyes. The creature is wreathed in storm clouds and lightning that seem to pour off its fins. It uses its giant flippers to smash the town to pieces, while lots of little medieval people run away.
