The Lonely Little Krawk

by silverkitty_8

Once upon a time there was a little Krawk named Darwin. Darwin was just a baby Krawk, he had no family, and no friends, he was all alone on Krawk Island. Darwin was a curious Krawk, and though he was just a baby he was very intelligent.

One stormy afternoon Darwin was wandering aimlessly through Krawk Island, he really had no home so he had no where to go and no shelter to keep him from the rain. Darwin really didn't mind the rain though, he actually kinda liked it. After hours of walking Darwin stumbled upon a cave, it was a dark cave, the inside walls were covered with a green like substance, it looked like moss, or maybe mold.

As Darwin wandered a bit deeper into the cave he discovered two tunnels, and running between the whole cave was water, icky swamp like water. Darwin was very curious of this new, unknown place he had stumbled upon, but it was way too cold to go venturing into these tunnels, so Darwin turned to leave but before he left he picked up some of the green goop that was sticking to the walls. The strange moss like stuff smelt sour, Darwin gagged, the aroma seemed to hang in the air around him, Darwin dashed out of the cave, hoping to get rid of that sour smell.

Later that evening Darwin decided to find out what that strange stuff in that cave was, he still had the green moss with him when he left, so he decided to walk to Krawk Island Nippers, which wasn't too far from the cave.

Darwin happened to know the owner of the shop and decided since he was like the only friend Darwin had that he'd ask him what this stuff was. When Darwin reached the shop the sign hanging on the door read closed, "Oh no!" exclaimed Darwin, to no one in particular, "it's closed, now what am I to do!"

After a while Darwin had a thought, he'll just knock on the door, him and the owners were friends so he'd be glad to help me, and sure enough it worked.

"Aye Darwin, what a surprise seeing ya here!" exclaimed Gus. "What can I help ya with?"

"Well," said Darwin, "I found this cave not that far from here, and inside on the walls was this green stuff." Darwin held up the goop so Gus could see it better.

"Aye, this is what ye folk call Fungus," said Gus.

Darwin looked confused. "What's fungus?"

Gus looked up. "I'm not sure really, I know it grows in that cave, maybe it'll do something if you eat it." Gus just chuckled to himself.

Darwin wasn't amused at all. "Well, thanks, I must be going now."

The next day Darwin decided to go back to that cave. So after he picked up something to eat, he headed for the Cave. When Darwin arrived he could still smell that sour aroma, it seemed to hover around the whole cave, Darwin took a cautious step into the cave, he looked around, it all looked the same. After walking around a bit in the cave he tripped on a rock and fell face first in the green fungus. Darwin rolled over and started coughing and gagging "ewww yuck" was all he managed to say, then all of a sudden something happened, it was all too quick, but before you know it Darwin was taller, and he felt different, after that Darwin had had enough, he ran out of that cave faster than you could say Krawk Island.

Darwin ran aimlessly through Krawk Island, he just kept running and running and running he was so scared. He finally stopped at a tree and sat down to catch his breath. Now Darwin was very confused, he wasn't quite sure what had just happened, All he remembered was falling in that green fungus and then running, Darwin felt groggy, he couldn't think straight so he just fell asleep by the tree.

The next morning Darwin was just walking around, not going anywhere in particular, Darwin had already figured out what happened, and he was very surprised, but happy too. So while he was walking around he bumped into a group of Krawks, they weren't pet pets like him they were big Krawks. One of them introduced himself as Pete, he smiled at Darwin and then pointed to one of the other Krawks.

"This is Sam," he said, then he pointed to the other Krawk and said "and this is Chuck."

Darwin smiled and said, "My name is Darwin."

Pete looked at Darwin, "Do you live around here?"

Darwin thought for a minute before he said: "I... uh, sort of, I do live here but I don't really have a home."

Pete, Chuck and Sam all exchanged glances, "Well," replied Sam, "you can live with us."

Darwin was so happy, "R-really?" Darwin stammered. "I could really live with you?"

"Sure," all three of them replied.

So after that day Darwin was adopted into Sam, Chuck and Pete's Family, they all lived together and were really happy, Darwin Especially, cause now he had a real family, and he wasn't alone anymore.
