    JULY 2, Y108

    Curiosity was not something that the greatest and most powerful of all predators was immune to. Just like a hatchling who was fresh and innocent to the world, the mighty hunter could be touched by wanderlust and an insatiable desire to know the strange place around him. He could roam far and wide when he so desired, on land and in the vast ocean. He was unafraid, and he had no comprehension of borders or regions. The great beast went where he wished, and the world was obligated to dip their heads in honor at his passing.

    His wanderings had, on this occasion, taken the fierce kaiju deep into a dry land that was as expansive as any ocean. The land stretched on in every direction, though his mighty eyes could spy great mountains in the distance. They were so large as to dwarf even him, and he mused about seeing them up close before he turned back for the sea. For the time being, the hunter continued to trudge further into the hot, dry, sandy place he had found. His fierce, clawed feet sank deep into the ground, and the heat was such that he could feel it warming him through his formidable hide.

    It was wonderful.

    Crooning softly, the mighty hunter shuffled his wondrous feet as he waded deeper into the sandy land. His long and magnificent tail lashed back and forth with pleasure as he walked, and he craned his splendid neck to marvel at the hot, glaring sun, allowing it to shine on his glorious scales and fangs. Swaying back and forth in quiet rapture, the most powerful of kaiju was content and even happy with this new place.

    The horrible snake-worm-bug was not expected, and it struck him with great force, knocking the magnificent hunter off balance. Not such an issue in any other circumstance, but on dry land, a hundred miles from the ocean, the wondrous predator was not steady on his feet. With an unhappy skronk, he fell like a pile of stones, and the earth trembled for leagues all around. As he fell, his fierce maw struck out with impossible speed, and caught the stupid wormy-bug by the tail.

    He held tight as he landed, huffing his anger as he hastily pulled his great form back upright, still clutching the end of the wormy kaiju in his fangs. The splendid hunter shook his head violently, setting the giant worm dancing through the hot air. It squealed as it went, but he did not care. It had attacked him - the most powerful. Most dominant. King. Now it would pay the price for insolence, by serving as his amusement.

    He flicked it back and forth a few more times, then tossed it with a casual sort of pleasure. The wormy-bug soared across the sand, and the mighty predator pursued it with enthusiasm, tail twitching back and forth as he trotted closer, waiting, waiting, waiting until the worm was alert. Until it started trying to burrow. Then he pounced with delight, grabbing it up again in his mighty jaws and shaking it to and fro like nothing more than a toy.

    The game went on for hours. Eventually, when the first wormy-bug died, a second came to replace it in short order, much to the blatant joy of the ferocious hunter. He threw the massive worms across the hot sand, then charged after them excitedly, and pounced upon them, tearing off strips and chunks of flesh before tossing them again with a flick of his gargantuan head. It was excellent fun, and by the time the sun had grown lower in the sky, the mighty kaiju was panting heavily as he hurled the fourth wormy-bug, which was the largest one yet.

    He saw it land, and it twitched a few times before growing still. Licking his wondrous jowls, the great hunter turned in a couple of tight circles, then bedded down on the hot sand, content to lap at the blood and goo that had managed to spread over the majority of his fearsome form. I am mighty, mighty, mighty. He crooned to himself as he worked, full of contentment and very good feelings. Fun, fun, fun in the sunny sun, sun. The great hunter projected his thoughts outward out of habit, and did not bother to check the area for any being that might be able to hear his inane prattling.

    Catch the worm, bite the worm, throw the worm. Catch the worm, bite the worm, throw the worm. I am mighty, mighty, mighty. I am strong. I am proud. I am noble. I am very smart. I am dominant. Yes.

    The Wastes weren't exactly the sort of place Hal generally went to on a vacation but with all the ongoings of Space. The Lantern thought anywhere other than in the middle of a war would help him get a tad bit less tense and worried. So he flew down seeking some bandits to pound on to pass the time.

    What he didn't expect, however, was a giant lizard playing whack-a-mole with some sand bug-worm-things. In fact, the Lizard sorta freaked Hal out a little. It looked like it had just swum in worm blood and was...enjoying? Did Lizards enjoy things? Hal honestly had no clue but as he watched on from above. He felt like this one was enjoying itself.

    And even high in the sky, he could feel the giant creatures stomping against the ground. Until he threw the worm and seemed to be making itself a bed. Which was around the time Hal decided to touchdown. Just in time to hear the thing say something.

    'What the fuck?' Hal muttered with excitement as he floated over towards the thing. His ring sensed that it was speaking telepathically which only intrigued the Lantern more. The glowing green man stopped not too far from Godzilla, as he extended out his fist and his ring sent out an enormous green scanner to document and possibly identify what species this was if it was in its databases.

    'Mister or Misses Dominant. You just did a mind thing right?' He shouted out as loud as he possibly could. Hal might have phrased it intelligently. But he was speaking to a giant lizard in the middle of a wasteland. Nothing about this made him feel smart.

    The display of forces that would make any physicist cry went on for hours so, even in a literal wasteland, it didn't take long before it people got worried and set off an alarm or two. There was a literal one in this case since Karin's cellphone went crazy as soon as it detected the massive energy signature making its way in the distance. Not even the annoying tech-destroying aura of the wastes managed to completely shut it off and Karin accepted trying to do so was a pointless endeavor. Instead, she decided to look at the damn thing.

    While it was surely nothing more than the product innocent fun, it sure looked a lot more threatening from such a small perspective. A statement of strength to whatever tried to even get close to what this lizard now considered its territory. And Karin hadn't gotten the best of track records with monsters the size of buildings.

    Before she could do more than gawk at its enormous size, the creature sent out a message to her mind. Naturally, it didn't move its mouth. Because that would have made too much sense.

    "...I guess it can talk?" She looked back at her fairy as if it were able to explain anything of what had just happened. If it weren't for the appropriate pitch the message had she would have easily assumed they were the thoughts of a small child. Which Karin did find amusing. "Well, something close to it. Kinda like you."

    There was someone else there too, already taking care of the situation. Being second to a scene like this made karin feel lazy, like she wasn't trying hard enough, but she still tried to close the distance with the monster just in case some backup was needed. Her worries shrank a little, though, as Karin noticed the green floating man was someone she recognized.

    "Wait, I know you! You are the guy from Starknet."

    Not very long ago, the great hunter might have compared humanity to an infection that had spread to every corner of the planet, corrupting it and making it horrible and sick. Then, he'd had... a slight change of heart. At the very least, the might predator had acknowledged that not all of humanity was a complete waste of space, and some could even be proud and noble beasts of their own right...

    But right now, with two stupid fucking humans closing in on him out of nowhere, the kaiju was back to seeing them as a fucking plague that was gradually destroying the universe, and he gave an unhappy screech of protest. They were ruining his good mood and his fun. They were--

    The mighty hunter blinked in alarm when the green, blinky man flashed a tremendous light in his direction. It was briefly blinding, and it soured his mood even more. Groaning angrily, the most powerful of all kaiju abruptly thrust his magnificent, proud face down into the loose sand, burying it in the cool earth. Hopefully, if they could not see his glorious fangs and most spectacular eyes, they would get bored and go away. Humans were stupid like that. They only cared about shiny new things that captivated their attention. Because they were stupid.

    No! The predator's thoughts bellowed out with immensity. Fuck off! Go away! Fuck you! Fuck you! He hunched slightly, fearsome spines picking up a dull blue glow against the heat of the day. I don't like you! Fuck off! Fucking humans! Fucking annoying! Fuck!

    You are the guy from Starknet. Was that really what Hal was nowadays. Given how he didn't really like or want the attention of some kid to be directed towards him. 'Nope. Definately not some guy from the net.' Hal went on to say as the scan continued.

    Until the beast groaned and dug its head into the sand as if it were an irritated child. Hal floated in silence for a few moments until the cursing began. Once more the giant lizard spoke, telling Hal to fuck off and just how annoying humans were.

    The Lantern let out a sigh as he conjured up a megaphone to better let him speak louder, so the creature could hear him. 'Listen pal. My names Hal Jordan and there's no need to insult anyone. I'm just here to learn a bit about you.' He would have missed a cool opportunity if he went and left the lizard alone.

    "Are you sure? Because I swear he looked a lot like you. What was his name... Hank?" Famous people tended to behave oddly while "off-duty". "Are you sure you are not just suffering from stage fright?"

    But the lantern apparently didn't have time to talk and he was unexpectedly professional, not keeping his eyes off the lizard for a second. To the point it made Karin wonder if she had gotten the right guy. Hmph he could pretend all he wanted. She knew she was right. And she could totally prove how she was, like, on another level altogether as a hero. She took out her phone again to look at whatever info she could gather about the lizard. Things like its size (huge), its weight (also huge) and the immense amount of energy coming out of the kaiju.

    "It says he's radioa-"

    The monster decided to bury its head on the sand and project more of its thoughts. This time Karin was forced to cover her ears in the hopes she would stop listening to the profanities the lizard decided to spew in their direction.

    "You brute!" her fairy responded back.

    "I can't believe you are such a rude monster!" Fighting giant creatures for survival was one thing but this lack of respect was personal and completely uncalled for. "If you don't like humans you should have gone somewhere else!"
