'Daddy! Get him away! Oh, no! Please! Hurry up! Daddy!' she called him with deadly horror in her voice.

'...A rapist, a sadist, a maniac...' Alex was ready to die, but save his daughter at any price.

Alex Darcheson was a scientist, who did not believe in God or Devil.
This is why when his daughter in her room on the second floor started screaming, and he rushed upstairs, not even a single unreal thought came into his mind.

"Daddy! Get him away! Oh, no! Please! Hurry up! Daddy!" she called him with deadly horror in her voice.

'...A rapist, a sadist, a maniac...' Alex was ready to die, but save his daughter at any price.

He stormed into her room and stood still for a second.

A monstrously huge bullfrog was sitting on the bed. The animal was the size of a basketball. It stared at his daughter, then slowly turned towards Darcheson.
Gasping, he grabbed this beast, and threw it through the window.

A horrible howl sounded on the street. Alex felt his hair stand on end. Hugging herself, the girl gazed at her father. He slowly went to the window, then looked outside.

A woman of middle age was lying on the sidewalk.
Darcheson crossed himself. Now he could believe in anything when an amphibian turned into a human being...
She moved.
Alex ran downstairs. He grabbed a kitchen knife. If that creature came from Hell, he wanted to send it back.
He approached her, but the woman sat up, looked around, and burst into curses.
"What bastard threw that damn frog right at my head?" she yelled crazily.

Only now the shocked Alex noted the dead toad near the sidewalk, and he hastily hid the knife.
Not replying to the indignant woman, who was still swearing and shouting, Darcheson slowly went back to the room of his daughter and embraced her with all the love that he had in his heart.
He was so happy that the incident had a real explanation, and he did not think how a frog that size could possibly get into the house.
