Humbaba

She had to shade her eyes, raising an arm against the heavenly brilliance of the cedar forest. How strange a thing the sun seemed, after even a brief time in the chthonic depths.

A feline yowl brought surging habromania that turned the girl’s hair and eyes golden. Then she saw the lion-headed behemoth menacing her poor cat!

“To enter the forest of the Herrenvolk is verboten!”

The giant breathed a torrent of flame and, more terrifying to his victim, raised floodwaters with his roar.

“Get away from my kitty!” The girl suffused her palms with death’s dark glow.

    How much Hogans Hero’s had you watched before writing this entry? I can’t help but picture the giant as Schultz. Colonel Hogan please don’t come in here. I’ll get in trouble.

      Actually, this was before watching any Hogan’s Heroes, I just figured some German was appropriate since Herrenvolk was the word prompt for the entry. That does put an interesting spin on things though–and thanks for taking the time to comment.
