The Rejection

Two sea monsters rose from the sea near San Francisco. Thousands of years old, they were like human teen-aged males, looking for trouble. They raised up a hundred of feet out of the water, surveying their surroundings.

“Let the wanton destruction begin!” said Bellerophicus with glee.

Then Gallopheniciadon saw the windmill in Golden Gate Park. “Look at her. She’s so beautiful!”

Bellerophicus’ four tentacles waved. He said, “Wow, she is hot.”

“She holds her tentacles out straight, stiff and immobile with lust. She’s exposing her genitals, inviting a mating!”

“She’s a tart.”

“I’ve never seen a female like her.”

“You should call her Stormy.”


“It’s a good name for a female who publicly exposes herself and invites frequent matings.”

Gallopheniciadon keened the ancient mating song. Only silence followed. “She refuses me! How crushing.”

“Forget her! Let’s smash this city.”

“No, I’ve lost the blood lust,” sighed Gallopheniciadon, sagging in the waters. “Let’s return in another 1,000 years. I’ll be bigger and more attractive. Maybe then, we can destroy San Francisco.”

Author’s Notes:

Stormy Daniels: “Stephanie Gregory Clifford (born March 17, 1979),[2] professionally known as Stormy Daniels, Stormy Waters or simply Stormy, is an American pornographic actress, screenwriter,[3] and director…The Wall Street Journal reported on January 12, 2018 that Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, paid Stormy Daniels $130,000 in hush money back in October 2016, shortly before the presidential election, to deny having had an affair with Trump in 2006…”

I’m pretty sure the picture prompt this week comes from the windmills in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park.
Golden Gate Park windmills: “There are two functioning windmills on the western edge of Golden Gate Park in San Francisco, California.[1] The northern Dutch Windmill was completed in 1903, and the southern Murphy Windmill was completed in 1908.[2] The Dutch Mill was placed on the San Francisco Designated Landmark list December 6, 1981, and the Murphy Mill was added July 2, 2000.”

About EagleAye

I like looking at the serious subjects in the news and seeking the lighter side of the issue. I love satire and spoofs. I see the ridiculous side of things all the time, and my goal is to share that light-hearted view.

    You’re right about the windmills and I’m glad “Stormy” decided to spurn the advances of those two impudent sea monsters.

    That would make for a very different kind of monster film, although I’d rather see Stormy the windmill and a sea monster than Donald Trump in action with his Stormy…

  4. Hahahaha! Maybe Stormy the Sea Monster knew she needed to reject her lover so they wouldn’t tear up San Francisco? LOL! Great story Eagle Aye! I always enjoy your stories.

    Do you think the sea monsters know Godzilla? Or how to release the Krakken?

      Sure they know Godzilla. They hang out and poker every other Sunday. And yeah, they’re related to the Kraken. He’s their great-great-great-uncle. The Kraken taught them how to go fishing for nuclear subs. 😉
