Brooke and Betsy were two very spoiled Gargantuan twins. On their parents’ last interplanetary Earth wilderness adventure they’d returned with a real castle full of real live humans for their birthday presents. It was such fun to try dropping different foods into the courtyard to see them scurry to – or from – it. The ice cubes dropped in had them crawling and sliding all over the place and had them emitting weird squeaks. This latest experiment with the sun lamp was having a curious effect on them; most of the time they hid.
Betsy, who had the darker nature of the two, one day said, “I have always wanted to frighten them more.” First they baited the large mesh cage with fresh fruit and were able to capture a dozen. They then raised the cage on a rope – and dumped two 5 foot-long ants into the courtyard.
