The monster-like beast had finally awoken. He screamed with rage when the deadly lightening attacked him.The anger kept on building up until he couldn't hold on.
People screeched in terror trying to escape but the beast caught them before they could run.It’s powerful magma wrecking nature and history. It felt like it would never stop.The monstrous beast didn't stop.Instead it threw rocks wrecking lives of the people and destroying the things they have built. Wiping out families and rebuilding a new life at the same time.
Once again the lightning hit him.He couldn't take it anymore! He yelled cried and screamed for help but nobody came. He was all alone. Or was he? He looked up to the sky and cried these words: sorry sorry! I didn't mean to. The lightning wouldn't stop bugging me. So I couldn't control myself and now look what I have done! I have destroyed everything. He looked down again and heard a small voice:hey! Over here. When you destroyed everything you actually made something too. A little mini volcano to keep you company.
So together they watched the country regrow. Who was the history now? THE BEAST WAS!

The cloud had pushed the volcano to its limit.
The volcano cried out molten lava.
The static lightning bolt reached out its hand to calm the beast.
But it was too late.
The lava was bursting out like a gushing cut from a moody teenager.

As the volcano’s wart burst, the tiny horrified rock climber's crawled up… THEY STOPPED… the Earth’s little hat descended out. Like a teacher on a Monday, there was no stopping this wild beast.
It’s slime sludged out like an out of control waterfall. NOTHING was holding it back. Fire was dancing in the shadows, ash was cascading out onto nearby buildings. The intense pressure built, trees got knocked out by the sneezing magma, neon orange light bursting with unique colours.
The volcano was ALIVE!
