S: The Lake Monster Duarte
FC: The Lake Monster | by Raymond Duarte
1: Many, many years ago, my father shared a story of "The Lake Monster." This is how I remember it...
2: One beautiful morning, Raymond and Bill, decided to go fishing in the lake up North. They got everything ready and left with Bill's boat.
3: In the boat was paddles, fishing poles and bait. The bait was large hotdogs and lots of slimy worms.
4: After they got the boat in the water, Raymond quickly cast his fishing line out and got a bite!
5: The fish was small but he kept it anyways. Then Bill cast his line. Suddenly, something very strong pulled at the line.
6: It was so strong it almost pulled Bill out of the boat. Bill pulled back even harder and yelled to Raymond, "HELP!"
7: Raymond was not fast enough. Bill was pulled from the boat. He hung on to the side of the boat.
8: Something very big started to come out of the water. This thing was big and green. It was a lake monster! He was very mad and was moving fast towards them.
9: Bill quickly climbed back into the boat and Raymond paddled as fast as he could back to the dock.
10: Raymond called his friends in the military...
11: First the Marines and Army came. They tried shooting him but it did not hurt the large Monster.
12: They called for an air strike from the Air Force!
13: But sadly, Bill's boat did not have a happy ending. It was hit by one of the bombs and sank to the bottom of the lake. | That did it! The Lake Monster was no where to be seen.
14: Bill was sad that his boat was gone.
15: Raymond helped look for the Monster's body but never found it. ????
16: Keep Your eyes open!
17: Until the next fishing trip...
