The old man peeled open an ancient tomb that looked as if it would turn to dust at any moment.

"Behold the unigiragon, the mightiest of the fabled beasts of yore; tall as a mountain, fierce as a thousand tigers, with wings that could blacken the entire heavens. Their thirst for flesh could only be matched by their incredible cruelty. Entire nations have been consumed by their unrelenting hunger. Thousands have perished, impaled on their poisonous horn. Their cold stare has turned entire armies to ash."

The little girl casually inspected the illustration in the old book. She looked up at her great grandfather. "I'm pretty sure that's an exaggeration, Pepaw. It actually looks quite friendly." She sniffled and wiped her nose on her sleeve. "They let us feed carrots to the one in the zoo.

It's tongue tickled.

And it let us pet its horn.

Just because one chewed up your favorite slippers is no reason to make up things.

That's just mean."
