Entry #1

My story for the Storybook

2008-12-12 09:16:29 by jossospro

The museum was quiet... too quiet. An old man was showing me around. We looked at artworks and sculptures, but something caught my eye. A pink door. It looked very out of place.

As I looked at it, the old man came up to me and said "Don't touch pink Gorilla".

I said "What?"

He repeated "Don't touch pink gorilla!"

The moment was awkward. He must've been talking about the door. We went on a little further, but that door was too tempting. It's pink... ness...

The old man continued on. I stood there for a while to make sure he'd keep talking to me in my absence. Indeed he did. I ran back and went into the pink door.

I entered a dark room. I shut the door behind me and I was completely engulfed in darkness...

I reached around, found a switch, and clicked it. The whole place became loud and lights turned on with loud clicks and bangs. The room was much bigger than I expected, and I kid you not, I was looking over a railway at a 20 foot high robot Gorilla head.

The massive contraption looked mean and menacing. I inched forward to look over the rail, and sure enough, 100 meters down the room continued. The stairs spiralled around the room, around the massive pink gorilla. It was a standing, yet dead killing machine.

I decided to go down the stairs, and down down down I went. What I got to the bottom I came up to the giant robot's pink foot. It shone in the dim ancient lights like immaculate metal.

As I was about to touch it, I remembered what the old man told me...

"Don't touch pink gorilla! Don't touch pink gorilla!"

Surely I wasn't going to touch pink gorilla? Surely I couldn't... I shouldn't...

I put my hand on the foot. Silence...

Phew. I sighed in relief. All of a sudden there was a screaming noise of live mechanical activity all around me. I looked up horrified, and the massive pink gorilla head looked down at me with menacing hateful bit red eyes!

I screamed my lungs out, and then ran with unnatural speed up the stairs. Round and round and round, lunging for the exit no matter how far away it was!

A hand reached for me... I sped up and it just missed me smashing the wall into pieces. I screamed even more!


I was helpless, until I got to the pink door. I ran at it... tried to pry it open, but it was locked. I was DOOMED!

The pink gorilla was staring at me. I waited for a lazer, or a hand to fly out at me!

Surely enough the terrible pink gorilla, with its mighty mechanical hand reached for me!

The hand came closer, and closer! I couldn't escape! Why did I touch pink gorilla? WHY!!!

As I bid farewell to my life, the pink gorilla poked me in the chest...

It said "You're it."

Hmm ... I think this should continue, but with the horror element. The Gorilla should keep saying your hit and poking the guy in the chest until it feels like chinease water torture! Almost, Steven King-ish ...

I get it. It's a build up of horror only to be ended with comedy. It was thrilling and funny. It's like you're prepared to have nightmares about this, but then you take control of it and make it funny. Bravo indeed. Would you mind taking a look at my entries?
