The Thing From The Sea

Oy wos walkin’ aroun’ Clockhaven this mornin’ moindin’ me own business an’ looking faw stuff worth lookin’ faw when Oy sawr them Dagon folks out walkin’ aroun’ too.  Oy decided ta follow them an’ they ended up down at th’ beach.  Oy hid behoind th’ rocks an’ watched ’em faw a bit.

They talked faw awhile.  Oy couldn’t understand wot they were sayin’.  Then they both turned ta fyce th’ sea an’ raised their arms and started rockin’ back an’ forth.  They wos sayin’ somethin’ over an’ over again “Yogso thought eekee eyee! Eeyah! Eeyah!” an’ they wos rockin’ fast an’ shakin’ an’ stuff. 

Then somethin’ Oy won’t soon fawget ‘appened.  The water near them began to ripple an’ this big thing came out of th’ sea.  It wos a big jelly somethin’ or other.  It looked loike a Christmas pudding awl quivery, but wit’ arms an’ tentacles all wavin’ aroun’ in toime with th’ wye the Dagon folks arms were wavin’, and things loike oyes wos formin’ and unformin’ wot looked loike just under its skin.  Oy pulled me camera from me bag an’ made a picture.  Th’ shutter wos loud an’ Oy thought Oy wos caught but they dint seem ta notice.  Th’ chantin’ stuff seemed ta get louder an’ louder an’ Oy wos surproised no one else came ta see wot the ruckus wos.

Then, th’ thing thet myde me jump from me hoidin’ place an’ run ‘appened.  The big jelly suddenly formed a mouth on its fyce, ifn ya could cawl it thet, and began chantin’ along wit’ the Dagon people, in a real deep koinda hollow voice.  It wos chantin’ and they wos chantin’ an’ it seemed ta get louder an louder an’ Oy’d just ‘ad enough an’ ran faw me loife.  Oy dint care ifn they sawr me or not.

Oy dunno wot ‘appened after thet.  Oy ran awl the wye back to Babbage Square, an’ hid out in th’ Imperial faw awhoile.

    I’d heard that someone fed one to that book-reading/burning machine back in the spring.

    Hmm. Maybe thats why it hasn’t worked right since?
