My eyes grew wide. I backed away from the door of the abandoned bar with the Union of the Flies inside. This was the last straw. This was where I drew the line.

“*cough!* did you see those spiraling clouds right above our base, boss?” one of the fly’s minions hacked, crawling out of the rubble. “Yes. He is more powerful than I ever imagined possible”. When they were all out of the pile of junk, the leader reminded them, “Remember, make him suffer for his weakness, or else”. He pulled out a whistle and blew it hard. A frog, about five hundred times the size of the flies, came hopping over. The leader of the Union held out a fly-shaped frog treat. “Nilah”, he said in a singsong voice, wiggling the treat.
