The Crumpula
Cameron discovers that someone accidentally left the Gate of Heaven open and God’s favorite pet got out. Now it’s up to him and his clumsy friends to get God’s pet back to Heaven through the Gate. Only thing, the Gate of Heaven is a box of Crumpula Cereal!

Dropping the spoon into my bowl, I scooped the extra large, sugary yellow puffs into my mouth. Crunch, crunch, crunch. Not bad. Taste like candy. I tilted the box so I could see what I was eating. The sleepies were still in my eyes so all I could read was the name. Everything else was a blur. Crumpula? I never heard of Crumpula before.

I crunched another mouthful. Taste salty. Like french fries. No sour, like lemons drops. My lips puckered. Super sour! I never had a cereal that was sweet, sour and salty all at the same time.

I pulled the box close to my face but it looked blurrier than before.
The box shook in my hands. I’m not making that up. I didn’t shake the box. It shook me. It felt like a squirrel was trapped inside. I dropped the box real quick and shoved my chair back. The box shook again. It shook right across the table.

Bam! A cloud of smoke filled the room. Crumpula cereal shot in every direction, pelting me in the head. I covered my face with my hands. The bowl crashed to the floor. The milk carton toppled spilling cold milk in my lap. I jumped to my feet and found myself face to face with the shaggiest, slobbering creature I have ever seen.

I’m almost finished with this story. In the meantime, I have made some new desktop backgrounds for Pony Wombat and the Second Ark. There are also some desktop backgrounds for the Metal Marble.
