good enough to do it!"
"Well, of course I don't LIKE crawling around in the sewers of Neopia, but I mean, who else has enough amazing plumbing skills to compare to myself?" winks Matt, casually leaning against a stack of pipes and flipping his wrench...
"Huh? You wanna hear more? Alright I guess. Nuthin' much too exciting goes on down there, except this one time...
I was working on a water pipe that had sprung a leak, flooding the whole sewer much deeper than usual. I was just tightening the last bolt on the replacement pipe, when all of the sudden I heard a noise from behind me. I turned around, but nothing was there. I shrugged it off, thinking it must be a rat or something, so I continued to work. I heard the noise again, only this time, it sounded MUCH closer. I spun around to see what it was...
Once again there was nothing, but I noticed the water behind me seemed like it had been disturbed...
Getting a bad feeling, I gripped my trusty wrench and started to back away towards the ladder that would lead me out of the sewer...
That's when it happened.
A stinky situation...
A tremendous Krawk leaped out at me from beneath the water's surface! It was monstrously huge, and pale, as if it had never seen the light of day. It towered over me, a fierce and hungry look in its eyes. With unbelievable speed and agility, the Krawk sprang past me, blocking my way out.
I knew I couldn't let myself be eaten. I mean, what would Neopia do without me? I knew I had to fight back. I waited until the beast's razor-sharp teeth and gaping mouth were nearly upon me, and...
I let him have it with my wrench! I went for another swing, but I realized my wrench was no longer in my hand!
I looked around frantically for it, but then I realized the Krawk had stopped its attack. It was making a strange wheezing noise...
The big brute must have tried to devour my wrench, and accidentally gotten it stuck in its throat! Within moments, the over-grown Krawk had fallen over unconscious. I pulled my beloved wrench out of its mouth and immediately contacted the proper authorities.
"Yep, just another act of selfless heroism by yours truly! One day, they should make a statue of me..."
