1 MEETING DENVER AND FRIENDS
(Start Reading from Prelude)
Denver,1 the Last Dinosaur, and his friends were playing in the fields. They lost their ball and Denver went looking for it. He found four people strange to him, lying on the other side of the field. He was frightened at first since he had never seen them before. He drew nearer, looked closer and realized that they were unconscious. He went to the nearby stream and carried some water in his mouth which he splashed on their faces to wake them up. The four children from planet Earth revived and couldn’t believe their eyes when they saw Denver standing in front of them.
Alan: “Wow! Is this your dream Noah? Fascinating! Denver looks almost real.”
Ryan: “How come we all are found in your dream?”
Zach: “Maybe we should close our eyes and everything will return to normal when we open them again.”
Zach and Alan closed their eyes hard to verify whether they were dreaming or not. But Noah would not let them mar this miraculous event.
Noah: “Stop. Don’t doubt what you see. Our dreams have come true. Remember the bright light, floating in space, our prayer and the certainty of the outcome. This is really Denver, the last dinosaur.”
Meanwhile Denver had taken some steps back and hid himself behind a tree because of the strange attitude of the Earthlings. But Noah put aside every fear because she wanted what she saw. She confidently moved to him and greeted.
Noah: “Hi Denver. I am Noah and I want to be your friend. My buddies there are Ryan, Zach and Alan. We come from Earth and we’re very glad to meet you.”
Noah stretched out her hand to Denver, and Denver a little suspicious at first, soon carried her to his bosom and kissed her.
Noah: “Come guys; what are you waiting for?”
Her friends marvelled at what appeared as a crossover to a different reality.
Alan: “Hey, Noah is right. He’s answered our prayers. I think we’ve entered another dimension.”
Zach: “You mean to Noah’s dimension. I didn’t know she loved that dinosaur so much that He would grant her that wish.”
Alan: “This is wild. It’s Denver as we know him in the cartoon. The others won’t believe us when we tell them this.”
Ryan: “If we four have seen it, that’s enough for the whole world to believe.”
Zach: “Look at him playing with Noah. He’s friendly like in the show.”
Alan: “I’ve met a dinosaur like I’ve always wanted and it is Denver the cartoon dinosaur as a bonus. Gigantic; this is what I mean.”
They all moved to Denver and he carried them in turn, licking each of them as he used to do. After these warm greetings, Denver spoke to them with gestures and words hard to understand. They soon perceived that he wanted them to follow him. They obeyed and he took them to his companions - Mario, Wally, Shades and Jeremy.2
Ryan: “Well, what do you know? You might as well meet some people you never loved in the series.”
