The Letter

"Swallowed Whole" by Ben Lehman

The Story

As they travel toward Melanie and the whale, Pilgrim Green Goggles notices how few moons there are for whales to eat.

But while looking around at the sky, he flies straight down the gullet of the whale!

Pilgrim Rolling Glass asks the whale to open his mouth, and the whale says, "OOOOKAAAAYYYYY!" just long enough for Green Goggles to fly out.

As Green Goggles flies out, Yellow Balloon flies in - and he lifts Melanie’s spirits by giving her a balloon and dancing with her.

Once he's clear of the whale's mouth, Green Goggles points out a bunch of tasty moons, so he won't have to eat Melanie's planet again.

The inhabitants of the moons hear what Green Goggles has said about them and come out of their houses, enraged, and say, "No! Don't eat us."

Rolling Glass attempts to explain the situation to the moons' inhabitants, but his analogy comparing the moons to cookies only makes them madder.

Pilgrim Yellow Balloon throws a party on the whale, inviting all the inhabitants of the moons to come, and they have such a good time they forget their anger with Pilgrim Rolling Glass.

During the party, Green Goggles sees his chance and sneaks away.

Pilgrim Rolling Glass once again asks the whale to open his mouth and let Melanie and her cat out, so the whale replies with a gigantinormous yawn.

Melanie and the cat fly out and are safe, but Melanie is upset that Pilgrim Rolling Glass didn't save her precious trees.

Pilgrim Yellow Balloon makes Melanie happy by giving her another balloon.

Epilogue

With all the moons' inhabitants living on the back of the whale now, the whale has plenty of food for years to come.

Melanie learns to forgive Rolling Glass, and eventually becomes his good friend.

After all, they are now Flying Temple Pilgrims together.

Notes

Jamie was really aggressive about keeping all those stones! Fortunately, the group managed to use all the goal words before that point. This was Anders regularly scheduled game, but because he also sat in on the afternoon group, he already had a sense of how the game plays out. David actually Skyped in all the way from China!
