He was lying in the long gras, his stomach pressed against the slimy floor, his face was on a rock and looked. He' s been observing a bunch of Ulysses taking a bath by the waters. He always thought Od-ods were fun animals. Even the smallest of winds could overthrow her, making her od-ods very instable.
In order to make things even harder for these extraordinary beings, they also have a couple of fun little winglets, small enough to not even be able to raise the Odyssey off the floor, let alone to soar. Crump, who still watched the top-heavy'birds', liked these flaws because they made the Odods much more easily catchable.
That'?s what Crump likes the most. It' actually what all candles like best. and Crump is more feisty than most. Cramp was educated by his dad, Cramp, the abilities of his favorite occupation. Most important, his dad had always said, was that you had to take care of the others and await them.
Observation was the crux of the matter. He was the group's greatest fighter, a crane legends and for 25 years the yearly Odfest HuntChampions. Crump's only wish in his lifetime was to someday gain Odfest and defeat his father's twenty-three odds in a single onslaught.
Today, Cramp thought, might be that one. This year his dad was not at the start because of a bad ingrowing toe nail and he was the favorite for the first time. It was said in the town that Crump was at the top of his play and no one could defeat him. Nobody but his dad Cramp, of course.
That was no trouble for Crump, his dad was limited to his own beds, Dr. Krint's orders. Cramp was lying in the gras, the anticipation weighed down hard on his scalp and took a long sniff. His forehead constricted and focused on the greatest of the odods, the mobleader.
Scanning across the herd, he judged the best side from which to strike the group. He would find the best corner of the onslaught, and then all of a sudden rush on them, numb the od-ods and drop them over, toppling them like cones. As he looked around, Crump looked at a bold choice - what if he came from across the canal.
This was a ploy that he and his dad had practiced as a young and unexperienced trainee, but which he had never seen at an formal joust. Thinking about the prospects of succeeding, the stream was so tight that he could take his breaths as he floated under water to the Odods, and then he could appear in their midst without having much chance to see and scatter it.
Marvellous, Crump thought, what a mastermind I am. Raising his skull a little, he examined the marsh and reed on the other side of the stream to find the ideal place to get into the canal. Above the waters, on the other side of the small stream, in the ideal place for his assault, he saw another set of gazes.
Then he looked across the creek to his dad, Cramp. I told Cramp to rest his thigh, but Dr. Krint ordered it. Cramps began to breath faster - certainly not that he thought it couldn't be. Then his dad used to hate the physicians, never heeded them.
Crump was so silly when he thought his dad just stuck around instead of protecting his crown. Obviously, his dad had said he wouldn't be competing, but that was all part of the pre-match build-up, the hard talk that all the top athletes do. and Crump fell into the gras and rocked his skull.
He, his teacher, his biggest competitor, was on the other side of the stream, at the place Crump had just chosen, watched the Odods and waited just as he had told Crump. Indeed, to the best of his ability, no one has ever had a candle. Crump was uncertain from his insecure halfway location, which led to the od-ods, whether it was a good plan to continue.
Trouble came when he leapt onto the pole he was now bridging. Something misjudged, Crump ended up, slid and held on to the twig from below, like a slacker in a forest. Slightly creaking, bowing, creaking a little more, Crump was sure he would not only break out of the rivalry and the arbor, but also out of his role as an extraordinary socialist (as Cramp the Champion's own child, and an aspiring fighter himself, he was quite a star of Crandle).
However, the shook twig sat down, and after seeing no strangers, he noticed the strange view of a crust turned over in a treetop, and stood up on the twig and shuffling to its current location, quickly thinin the twig, a twig Crump was not sure he would withstand. There was Crump about 5 meters from the twig above the odods and about 10 meters above their head.
However, his insecurity was cleared when he realized that the little square on the other side of the stream no longer saw and waited. He was scanning the banks of the creek - he couldn't see his dad anywhere. The Odods were still on his side of the stream, and then he glanced back.
Halfway across the sea you could see a small trace of blisters that could only be seen from the up there. It was Cramp who had begun his assault. It was Crump's decision. He had come this far and had no other chance for many years - he had previously been counting at least 35 ounces along the riverbank, and more had come since then.
Crump could only capture a few of them and stop his dad, he would surely be this year's champ. The Crump kept an eyeball on the track of blowing across the stream. There was no point in Cramp being there before him at the speed Crump was going.
And he began to rock the limb. Crump held the pole as tight as he could, swaying and bouncing the pole up and down and from one side to the other. When the fruit struck the floor, they blew and banged, frightened the Odods and caused them to tip over by rising too quickly, turning around, or anything that destabilised their already instable structures.
and as he was falling more and more. He laughed so much he couldn't even get the ring. This was not a too sorrowful touchdown - the heap of soccer-size cherry elephants (and a large number of odods) crashed. Total delight at the bunch of trapped odyssey that surrounds him.
It was Crump at the top of the day. The spasm was nowhere to be seen. Ultimate numbers of Odods caught were unknown, as a certain amount of science tests were needed to determine exactly how many Odods had been crushed under Crump's overthrow. He was the champ, the greatest fighter of them all.
