Enjoy the first part of The Boggy Marsh

The Boggy Marsh

Patrick grudgingly walked through the puddle outside Pugfoot’s home. Pugfoot when are you going to fill in that hole? Well I’m not sure Patrick as we are always out and about so when do I ever get a chance? “Alien Ant Farms Pugfoot” there’s Grimly Smide! You two would be best to go off to and hide. “Why’s that Smide?” Patrick asked. “Hmmm, Rupert’s coming”, “Patrick he’ll squash you like a slug”. Patrick then stated, “don’t you mean he’ll slug you like a bug squash!” pugfoot. “Oh yeah that’s it, Where will we hide then?” pugfoot I think its best that we head up into the Pete’s ravine. Are you sure Patrick “that’s where Grumbolt lives”, and so does Pete “pugfoot”. The pair made their way towards Pete’s ravine and along the way they crossed the swamplands of the boggy marsh. As they made their way across the swamplands pugfoot noticed as Patrick took his steps through the swampy bog that bubbles rose from the water. As they walk aimlessly through the marsh, pugfoot mumbled, “Oh that’s funny bubbles”. Then suddenly Pete arose from the depths of the swampy marsh and snickered “Yes! Bubbles”. Well now Pete pugfoot and I were on our way to see you. Oh really asked Pete, and why would you to be heading towards peat’s ravine knowing full well that Grumbolt lives there Patrick? “Well in my experience Pete” Grumbolt not as mean as Rupert would you agree Pete. “Bah you could be right there Patrick”. but Rupert hasn’t been in these parts for some time now. What makes you think he’s here now Patrick? Grimly Smide said that Rupert was coming. Now Patrick how often have you heard Grimly Smide say that Rupert was coming, only to just find out, that it was all a lie? “Gruff your right Pete”, pugfoot I’ll slice that slug into worm food the next time we meet. “ It’s not the first time, I’ve heard that either Patrick” the three of them laugh at that point. Come on then lets be off before Grumbolt see you then. As the three made there way they came across two bull frogs sitting on a couple of lily pads as they passed, one of them at lightening speed flicked out its tongue and catches a blow fly buzzing around Pete head. “That’s gross you know” said Pete, as he wipes the snot from his nose with his forearm and greased it through his hair. One of the bullfrogs then looked at Pete with eyelids raised “oh really and you call us gross!”
