Today, let's take a smallish break from the song challenge. I'm already a song or two behind. Why not one more? :P
How about some snippets? Since I've actually been writing. These are all from the Oddball story in his POV.
"On the left-"
"Which side is that?!"
The jungle man pointed at them and shouted.
"See- I don't know
what that means, freaky man!" Rocky said.
Jungle man nodded and his many warriors appeared again. Just great.
Time to make a plan B.
Running wasn't an option.
Rocky held his hands up. "We didn't do anything. Is it illegal to
walk around here?"
Oddball elbowed him.

The girl shrugged. "The Daroon
tribe is always looking for someone to pillage and behead. Nothing to worry
"Um, we're a little lost," Rocky didn't give the snake head a
second glance. "Would you mind taking us to the nearest-"
"Road," Oddball said.
"- village." Rocky
looked at him.
"No problem." Peril
wiped her sword clean on the ground.
