Genre: Fiction

I will tell you one page which is page1.
Gerathon moved,her black scales,thick as plate metal,clicked against the sandstone.Her mouth was open,tasting the air her tail flicked playfully behind her.life!she thrilled with life,with her own body sliding over earth,and the earth sliding under her.life is a pulse,a twitch,a flutter,an inhale.life is movement.she wagged her tounge and tasted human on the breeze.more life!she wasn’t hungry at the moment.flocks of animals skittered,lumbered,and scampered after her,trembling with fear yet unable to turn away.Anytime she wanted a snack,she simply extended her great neck and snatched up a kangaroo or wild dog.She had not known hunger since her escape.All the same,life filled her with desire to grab pulsing things and squeeze.She changed directions toward the lone human,her weaving body frisky.She could move nearly silently,of course,but there was no need.What creature could out-run two runs of cobra?This creature did try-a young man, his face still full of childhood when he looked back at her with wide-eyed fear.
