Short Story: When he woke up it was still there!

Submitted by Editor on Thu, 2016-01-21 21:26 After the ceremonious evening and booze up he landed in a more or less concrete jungle, so wild and green. It was dusk. His nauseated body stumbled across the paths as he managed to lay a step into a wonderfully lit area, where flowers smiled at the setting sun. With his hazed vision he took a glance at the square periphery only after which he suddenly slipped onto a fluffy mowed like lawn. There he cradled for a while.Subsequently bringing himself back into conscious he sat upright with eyes wide opened, scouring for a peahen’s entry. The curious hour in his wrist watch started. His surrounding turned taciturn. Hence the ticking of the time accompanied the sound of much masculine footsteps.Later began the extravagant night which soon turned gothic. He first gazed at its poised feet, which appeared rough for him. As he ascended he only discovered the weirdest of weird parts. Legs were dwarf, tummy was bulged, structure hunchbacked and spikes erected all over the body. At the top he spotted an elongated face, protruded eyes, spooky nostrils, insanely shaped mouth and ill-mannerly lined yellow teeth. He mildly fainted and came under its sharp tail and partially bruised his face.Thumping his head he looked back at the whole specimen and realised it to be a Dinosaur. He outcried,”OMG! OMG! Did I just spot a Dinosaur? Or have I lost my senses? Help me! Help me!” He ran helter-skelter and hid behind a brown bush. In the next alert dawn he found himself behind the room’s closet.Thus the much awaited night turned adventurous to the newly wed groom. When he woke up, the dinosaur was still there. Yes, his wife was still there, but asleep. ABOUT THE AUTHOR:K R Shravani  is a First Year M A (English Literature) Student with Manasagangothri, Mysuru.
