Thump! He slammed his enormous, grass covered foot into the middle of the road, sending shockwaves of dust in all directions. As they came to a screeching stop, cars - that were swerving to avoid the huge, bark covered troll - were beeping their horns and leaving tyre tracks on the tarmac. In desperation, all of the frightened people abandoned their lovely homes before the troll could damage them. The towering troll, with moss covered feet from the jungle, was double the length of a house on the constructed street. Under his arm, he was carefully holding a sailor’s boat as if it was a toy. Seaweed dangled like a rope from the sailing boat making the area smell of the sea. Carefully, he ripped off a roof from one of the brick houses curious of what this land was.  The people were puzzled with the odd troll as it calmly peeked through the lifted roof. The people’s minds blurred in confusion as the troll gently glanced at the people below looking at him muddled. The troll’s dark shadow shaded the area making it cold to stand there. Dust was spreading around filling the area of unclear confusion. As the unusual troll shivered, the ground shuck as if an earthquake was coming and so the area came gloomy with dust unrolling.
