One summer evening, Sir Tobias the vanquisher of dinosaurs took flight in search of a bouquet of roses for his new-found lover. His lover, Tobimithy, was a striking lass of a deep burgundy colour with the loveliest of silver spots resting atop her wings like jewels. Tobimithy had an intricate mind unmatched by any but Tobias himself. She was a marvelous creature, beautiful and delicate and more extraordinary than any woman Sir Tobias had ever laid eyes on.

For this reason, only an impossibly extravagant bouquet of roses would suffice. Sir Tobias’s journey was hard and relentless, ruthless almost as though it was a swordsman seeking to steal Tobimithy’s heart. Tobias travelled far and wide, across countries and window sills to find the perfect flowers to offer as token of his undying love. Finally, he found it. He snuck past the mundane barrier made of glass and frozen tears to reach the heavenly fountain of pollen and petals.

“My love,” he said, riveted. “I have finally found what I have been looking for; a rose for a rose of a woman.”

At last, Sir Tobias had completed his life’s mission – to find and extract a beautiful specimen to give to his soulmate, Tobimithy. He stood for a few seconds to marvel at his discovery, but then realized he should take wing towards the outer edges of society, where his lover waited patiently for his return, probably aching to see him again. Too late, he realized his mistake. The humans would capture him!

Ensnared in a cocoon of pandas and undeserved cruelty, Tobias sat against the mahogany of the bedframe, glaring at his captor as though to burn holes through his skull. Unfortunately, the human did not succumb to the overwhelming force of Tobias’s glare.

“Unleash me, foul beast,” Tobias roared. “I have vanquished dinosaurs far larger than yourself.”

The human tilted its head at him, undeterred, and continued speaking in an unknown language.

“Are you cursing me? I will not stand for such disgrace from such an idiotic creature! Unhand me, vile demon or face the wrath of my prehistoric vanquishing abilities!”

Again, the human ignored Sir Tobias, as though it had no idea of the vast hatred now beginning to unfurl within the proud mothurflai. Seconds later, Tobias took flight, launching himself at his captor with all the momentum such a small body could muster. Uttering a battle cry – or something more akin to the squeal a young girl would make – Tobias began attacking, his wings and feelers well equipped to the task of handling such disgusting mortals.

Hours later, after a bloody war had been waged between the two organisms, Tobias stood atop the large human body, victorious.

“Pitiful creature,” Tobias laughed. “I warned you, but you would not heed my counsel. For that, you have suffered, and shall continue suffering within the fiery pits of hell where revolting things such as yourself inevitably find themselves.”

Grabbing the original object of his fascination, Tobias sought course homeward, to greet his lover and future wife.
