Cucumber had floated through the swamp and into the mountains. He had heard that there were furry creatures that he could befriend up in these mountains. He just had to find them. He searched up one path and then the next. Gliding along like ghost. Not that he knew what a ghost actually was. One or two blobs he came in contact with actually ran away screaming. Which he thought was rather rude.
Finally he came upon some buildings and a rather large gate. Cucumber sails through the breaks in the wall. The place was quiet. And there were no signs of the creatures any where. Where could they possibly be? He searched in one pen and then another. No furry creatures. So he went to a rather large building and that is where he saw them. Rows upon rows and the furry creatures. Some with brightly colored fur while others looked almost plain. One had a lone horn in the middle of its head. And they were all eating fish. In fact there were so many fish there was hardly any room to walk. Luckily Cucumber did not walk and so he floated across the room where a bunch of other blobs was sitting in a line facing another blob.
"What's going on here? Am I interrupting? "Cucumber asked the blob that looked to be in charge. The blob turned his midnight black eyes to Cucumber.
"Nope, We are getting ready to do an eating contest. You see someone brought us a whole lot of fish and we have to eat them quickly before they go bad sooooo we are have a contest as to who can eat the most in a certain amount of time. We have room for one more if you want to participate"The red blob waved one of many legs over to the line.
Cucumber floated over to the end of the line then lowered his body to the ground. The blob next to him seemed to be all mouth. He was pretty sure that one was going to win.
"All right blobs. When I say go, you can start. When I say stop you stop.; I will be watching you and tallying up how many fish you eat." He held up a pen in each of his legs/arms.
At the word go, Cucumber grabbed the first fish in front of him which just happened to be an Eris fish that seemed to want to get eaten. Once that was done he grabbed another and another until he thought he would burst.
"And Done!!!" The multi legged blob shouted. One of its arms still making marks on the paper.
Cucumber put down the white fish he had clutched in his hand.
"Ok. So I am going to only going to say who got first, second and third. So Third place goes to our new comer.They did quite a job eating those fish. Second place goes to the blob next to him. And first place goes to Squeakers."
Cucumber had to lean forward to see who had eaten more then his neighbor It was a small pink and grey blob with overly large rabbit ears.
