As he journeyed he traveled up and up
he moved up and up into the Heavens
but he did not get as far as he hoped
his ship fell
but he lived
the planet was breathable
he met a friendly creature and the creature stood on two legs just as he
the creature took him in and became his friend
he met friends of the creature and the friends were kind as well
BUT the creature and his friends warned him to not go across the line
“The other side is not safe.”
they said. he was warned to not go out and meet the others who lived across the line
the others were monsters who spewed venom
but the man was not always wise and of course wanted to see for himself … …
“Who will offer the sacrifice?”
A man stepped forward. “I will.” He lifted his arms and offered his baby.
“Your heir. A bold choice.” The leader intoned.
“I do it for the good of our people.” Said the Father.
“You are wise beyond your years man-who-offers-sacrifice.”
The father continued to hold the baby offered to the leader.
The leader looked to his people.
“It has been many moons since our last sacrifice. Our Noodle Master has been upset. As we have seen, he used his Noodle powers to drown Alexandra in the lake. He also used his Noodle powers to drive elder Joe insane. Why else would elder Joe go into that forest and confront the great black bear? With this sacrifice, we shall appease the bloodlust of our Noodle Master. This blood sacrifice will keep us safe for the next Moons to come. NOODLE MASTER! ACCEPT THIS OFFERING!”
The leader reached and grabbed the baby. He grabbed the baby by the head and slammed the small creature into the stone floor with his full might. The baby was dead upon contact.
A single tear flowed the father’s face.
The leader looked at the brave father. “Your sacrifice is not in vain. The Holy Noodle is a fair God indeed.”
