Krunzle the Quick—Chapter Five: A Diversion

Krunzle the Quickby Hugh Matthews ... Chapter Five: A DiversionHurt a little? Krunzle began. Then perhaps we could— He was unable to continue because his senses were now reporting that his insides and outsides had apparently changed places, and that his entire carcass had subsequently been consumed by a raging firestorm wrapped in a freezing blizzard, then crushed to the size of an ant—and not a very big ant, at that. ... He was next conscious of screaming hoarsely, and then vision returned,...
