“Don’t be fooled by his smug innocence, Officer Cretchner.”
“Are you sure you are not seeing giants where there are only mice?”
“He claims to be just an organic horticulturalist… a local gardening enthusiast. But the rumblings in the underground…”
Officer Cretchner smiled. “There are rumblings about a group of gardening thugs?”
“Do not make jest of this!”
“I am sorry. Please continue.” But you could see that Officer Chetcher was not a believer.
“The rumblings foretell of a new variation of towering sunflower. A sunflower stem that can reach to the heavens.”
“To the heavens?”
“From the beyond, great and mighty beings can then use this trunk for the infiltration of our premises. We will have no way to stop them.”
“Calm down.” reassured Officer Cretchner. “I will speak to this soiled ruffian myself.”
“Be careful. He goes by the name Jack… Jack Stalk.”
