The Giant Centipede – 1253

“The two burds did not look for things to be frightened of…..But….Silhouetted in the moonlight, this swiftly moving creature had rushed low along the skyline and suddenly stopped, as though sniffing the air or listening. Then, with a flurry of many legs, it had scuttered away over the edge of the platform of rock and into a dark valley of boulders.”……from The Burds of Burdle, Chapter 5, Kurl and Higginz in Rokland
