It's not easy being a cockroach. by malena82tn on GoAnimate

I stood on the sand dunes, the wind blowing in my face, as I looked around the little beach.What a perfect day for swimming! I was about to race onto the beach with my surfboard when something caught my eye. Something was moving on a rock near the waters edge! I decided to take a closer look despite the sickly feeling in my stomach. I crouched low to avoid being seen and started to move forward. I moved like a ninja through the long tufts of grass, passing behind sand castles and hiding behind rocks. Finally I reached my destination. I rose to my knees and peeked over the top of the grass that I was behind and almost fainted. The creature in front of me was absolutely HIDEOUS!!!!!!!
It’s huge mouth was filled with rows of dirty brown teeth. 2 Giant sharp fangs jutted out from the top of it’s jaw.Just imagine mealtimes with it.! A big fin on it’s back looked like a bone sticking out. Two smaller fins were attached to the sides of it’s scaly skin. It’s short stubby tail kicked back and forth slowly. His sunken in eyes bored right into me as if he was trying to read my mind. And that pong!!! If I wasn't so frightened I would of run away yelling!
I wondered if it was strong. Well those teeth must be able to rip a hole in metal! It must have trouble swimming with such small fins. It wriggled a bit. I wondered if it would lunge at me. I tried to look away but I couldn't. It was using some sort of hypnotic force on me.
I wished it would go back to where it came from. Suddenly, like it was reading my mind, it did. It took one more glare at me and then slipped off the rock into the crashing waves. I was glad it was gone. I decided it was to cold to go swimming today but it was really because I couldn't risk getting my leg chomped off by that creature! I climbed back up the sand dunes and started toward the car, but before I did I took one last look at the ocean. And I’m pretty sure I saw a giant jaw with rotten teeth raise up from the water.
