Lifting a feeble hand she had exhausted her last ounce of energy.The girl was as a paper doll stuck to the muddy earth with Elmer's glue. She was dead. Roaring in triumph, the giant raised his fists in the air waving them back and forth. Letting out a roar of glory it brought down several passing birds down at the stench of dried cow blood on his dirty, stained teeth. Bending down slowly he laughed as he picked up her fragile broken body, and flicked her like a rubber band, sending her hurtling through the air till she crashed into the Pacific to be crushed by the pressure and water surrounding her until her corpse lay on the dark ocean floor. Her name was Hope, she was destined to save the world and she failed. Or did she......
