Once we added the dimension of time to space, things got crazy. Plants went to war with giant bees, and flying monkeys stole the moon out of the sky. Night became day and down was up. All the clocks on planet earth went haywire with hands spinning backwards.
And now, this new creature has appeared and we can’t determine its exact species. His wingspan is 8 feet wide and appear to made of glowing iridescent crystal. As he flies, they refract light and send brilliant prisms into the atmosphere. He peers at us with gigantic purple eyes as his long thick body glides through the air with grace.
We look at him through the wrong end of the long telescope of time and ponder his presence. Is this magical creature here to save us, or does our fated death lie in his jagged mandibles?
