The KelpieIt began in mythology class, mentioned alongside so many other bizarre creatures that began with the letter "k": the Kappa, a Japanese water demon that fed on cucumbers and the blood of small children; the Kraken, a huge squid-like beast that lived in the deepest depths of the ocean and devoured ships; the Kongamato, an enormous flying creature, almost like a pterodactyl, that carried off whatever food it could.The Kelpie by Toaster-Omlette
And then there was the Kelpie.
Professor Wagner scratched the name out on the damp blackboard with the soggy squeak of chalk echoing throughout the tiny classroom.

Hello Internet, lovely meeting you all ^^ |
I'm Drosera-sundews. Just your friendly, neighbourhood pseudo-scientist. You can call me Sundews, or Loes (that's Dutch, pronounced as 'loser' without the "R"). Or anything else that at least sounds like my name, be creative
