As the first rays of the spring sunshine flooded The Beast's lair, the Mini Beasts arose. They danced outside amongst the blossoming wildflowers, anticipating what was to come as the waters receded and gave way to the true beauty of their flat lands.
But deep in the lair, all was not well for The Beast himself.
He had risen from his winter slumber, but somehow was unable to take a deep breath and emit his powerful roar as was his will.
He staggered to the surface of the lair, but there were rumours about changes to his ways and a story of a mighty new King of lands close by, soon to be crowned in all his glory, and this year no two legged creatures from the higher grounds would be crossing his path.
The Beast was sad & the Mini Beasts feared for his well-being. His nostrils that lay aside his scaly face felt blocked, and his powers felt diminished.
But then as the sun rose higher in the skies above, a slight itch, a stirring from within, a tentative raising of the head - and suddenly, from nowhere The Beast let out the mightiest sneeze. From those majestic nostrils came a flow of coloured snot - red, yellow, pink, green and all the colours of the rainbow - and flooded The Beast’s lands with a sway of gooey beauty.
The Beast roared his mighty roar once more, he looked at the Mini Beasts with a smile and bellowed "I have an idea......"
The Mini's frolicked with glee and a mischievous look in their eyes,
" It's going to be a BLAST”.
