Here's my animal story:




The Assassination


Mitch Porter




Part I


It was an average day for this particular grasshopper, he was heading down to the clover patches, distributed across the grass. As he turned towards the asparagus plant he felt himself, being lifted off the ground, trapped inside a miniscule bug catcher. He was lost in a maze of plants, grasses constantly at every turn. Then the grasshopper saw a light coming from the top of the enclosure. He crawled towards it and found himself trapped under a thick sheet of clear plastic. As he wriggled towards a small crack he used his small but powerful legs to push towards it. The rest was a blur, suddenly a bright blinding light, and then darkness. He heard a voice saying, “You shall be: Gerald IV, International Superspy.” When he awoke he found that his back legs weren’t normal, they were stronger.Then he looked around, and found that he was in a glass cage. He was fed clover and corn, and it was fabulous.




For the next few days, it went like this, until Gerald heard another voice,”Your mission is to find and assassinate the Mantis Dictator, leave nothing but the wings. You must be coefficient with the three agents in the room. This is all resting on you; we have no substitute.”, and the voice was gone Gerald asked, “How do I get there? Who are you? What agents”, but there was no reply. Gerald moved to what seemed like a lock on the door, and kicked, the door fell open. Across the enormous room Gerald saw it…




Part II


It was a clear enclosure, covered in leaf litter, it had a black base, and a screen on the top. He couldn’t see inside. Gerald jumped down to the floor and slowly crawled across the floor to the high black table. He knew that not even he, with his powerful legs could make it to the top. The young agent thought and thought, and it came to his memory, of the fuzzy caterpillars, that climbed the trees in his home. Maybe they would be here, he weighed the variables and decided to explore the room. Gerald saw a long line of low enclosures within his reach, 



and hopped towards them. Just his luck, one of the labels said Wooly Worms.


Gerald opened the enclosure, and crawled inside; there he saw two caterpillars moving monotonously towards him. Gerald approached and chirped out two words, “Dead Mantis”, and immediately they understood. Gerald and the wooly worms meticulously moved to the big black table and as the caterpillars crawled up on their sticky, clingy legs, 

Gerald hung to their fur.

Finally he had made it to the top. Gerald looked inside and saw the hideous creature with an evil expression on its face. Slowly as a grasshopper passed by the mantis, the mantid’s form expanded just a little, and within an instant the grasshopper was in its claws. Gerald knew he would need more to defeat the tyrant.


Part III

Gerald was clueless as to what he would do now, so he asked the wooly worms. They had heard legends of Elmo, the legendary crab who lived alone of in the furthest reaches of the room. So Gerald climbed on the backs of the wooly worms and they surged forwards, heading straight for the tank, and as they reached it, they heard, “YEE HAW! Hey ya’ll, I’m Elmo, the hillbilly hermit crab.” Gerald knew he was a simple folk but he still

questioned, “Can you help us defeat the mantis tyrant.” Elmo fired back, 

“I might have a new here shell ya’ll can borrow” “Umm, sure...” Gerald said conspicuously. Elmo brought out a shiny shell and Gerald crawled inside. He hopped on the wooly worms’ back and they carried him to the cage.
