Journal entry[edit | edit source]

Why've you got such big eyes, Grandmum? asked the little girl with worry. "Shriek! Shriek!" replied the basilisk. "Grandmum, why do you say 'Shriek, shriek!'?" asked the little girl with surprise. The basilisk didn't reply, but instead clamped its toothy, venomous maw over the curious little girl and swallowed her up.
Luckily, a witcher by the name of Eskel was wandering these lands in search of a zeugl. The witcher was experienced and so knew basilisks only turn people to stone in fairy tales. He also knew it is best to avoid their venom.
Eskel noticed the monster had recently eaten, and before anyone could say, "Ready, steady, go!" he threw himself at the beast and cut it open with his silver sword. The basilisk's stomach opened up and the witcher saw the half-digested foolish little girl inside.
