Jenny was walking herself in the forest. Jenny was a little scared to be alone, because some people said that in the forest was a monster who liked to kidnap children. But the realities of the rumors were not proven yet. The rumors stated that some children were missing when they were walking alone. Jenny did not pay attention too much about the rumors which was not proven the reality yet.
Now, Jenny was near from the river, and Jenny had to cross it. She had to use a small bridge, but it was so long. The wide of the bridge was so little. It was the same as one person’s body. Although she felt a little scare, but Jenny was trying to be brave to cross the bridge. She grasped both side of the bridge rope. Jenny walked step by step, from one tip of the bridge to another.
Suddenly, from the far distance, Jenny saw a strange thing. The thing was jumping on the water. From the far distance, the thing looked so small. The thing was closer, and the thing looked bigger. Jenny could see clearly that the thing was a monster. The monster was so big. The shape looked like a balloon. The monster was laughing while moving closer to Jenny. The monster was round headed and had a round big stomach. He was jumping on the water and aiming to her. Jenny could not run because it was too dangerous. She had to walk and kept the balance to prevent herslelf fall into the river. Now, Jenny could just stand stiffly while he looked at he monster who was ready to pounce on her.
When the monster was very close to Jenny, the monster was taking the little Jenny with his long hand. Jenny could not against the monster. The monster was grasping Jenny’s stomach firmly. Jenny almost could not breathe because of the monster’s grasping. Jenny’s body was now flying in the balloon monster’s hand.
Jenny was trying to be calm to face the situation. Jenny hade ever been given an advice by her Mama, that she had to be calm when she was facing a bad situation. Then Jenny started to calm herself down to make her thinking clearly. Jenny’s fingers were trying to feel the monster’s skin. Jenny could feel that the monster’s skin was so rubbery and elastic like a balloon. Jenny could also feel that in the monster’s skin was a lot of air inside.
Jenny remembered that a balloon could be blow if it was pricked by a needle. Jenny wanted to try this and wanted to know what happened to the monster. Jenny did not want to think too long. Jenny took a needle which was used in his shirt. Jenny prepared the sharp part of the needle to be imbedded on the monster’s body. When the needle was imbedded on the monster’s body, a sound of explosion was heard loudly,”BOOOOMM!!!” The monster’s body which was so big now was blowing. The small body of Jenny was flied to the air and dropped in the stack of straw. The pieces of the monster’s bodies were now spreading anywhere.
Jenny felt that her body was so stiff. Jenny tried to stand. She held her parts of body which was felt so hurt. Jenny turned her head to the right and the left side. She felt that the place was not strange for her. Then Jenny tried to recall although her head was still dizzy. A minute later, Jenny could remember that the place was a Mr. Rizky’s garden. Mr. Rizky’s house was placed beside the yard where Jenny usually played around with her friends. Jenny felt so happy because he did not have to walk in the far distance to get the yard. Jenny then walked to the yard, and she saw her friends were waiting for her.
