Exploits of Ninja & Child - #3 - The Hyperbeast

From the fourth dimension, they are able to travel quickly, with only a twist and a pivot to move from one side of the planet to the other in a matter of seconds, the three dimensional universe as a whole only minutes away. Now in the sea of Epiphany, which swims somewhere near the northern Pacific Ocean. Now walking on and off land, in and around, a place known in the 3rd dimension as Sedona, Arizona.

The air is hot, cold, hot again as the ninja and child try to remain hidden in the folds of four dimensional space. It's a tricky task, which, when completed, reveals a hyper-dimensional landscape far more beautiful than the simple mountainous Sedona seen in 3D. In the fourth dimension, the sun is setting over another plane. The air is cool and crisp. The sky changing in a flurry of color and light. The mountains roll, literally. It takes the light-footed sprinting of a ninja to navigate the twisty plane.

As ninja and child navigate the surreal landscape, time shifts. They fall into a past tense.

'Twas brillig in the hyper-plane
Where ninja and child sought their prey.
Rest not until the beast is slain
And Lucy sings, "Callooh! Callay!"

"Beware the curvy land, my dear!
The paths betray, the trail moves!
Beware the open space, keep near;
Your ninja dad will find the grooves!"

He took his shuriken in hand:
Long time the hyper-ghost he sought --
So rested he with ideas planned,
Whilst ghostly foe did child spot.
And as with useless plans he stood,
The Hyperbeast, with hyper-fang,
Came rolling forth through tumbling wood,
And with excitement sang!

Though fingers long and eyes aflame,
The ninja turned and beat the beast!
And so the wicked foe became
A wicked tasty, fancy feast.

'Twas brillig in the hyper-plane
Where hero ninjas curve and sway
And hyperbeast lays broken, slain.
Now Lucy sing! Callooh! Callay!

Me & Jenna just mentioned yesterday what a change an attitude she's undergone. Thanks SDN.

Heather Spohr is also deeply concerned with the next dimension. Perhaps she should be trained in the tao of the Ninja.

Callooh! Callay! Nice work, SDN. And nice to see that Code Name Alice will be able to defend herself against hyper-dimensional beasties. You are an excellent father/ninja. How long before she is able to handle a shuriken herself? Obviously her motor skills and hand size are a set back at this point...

All are welcome to the feast, or what is left of the beast.

Code Name Alice is only watching the shuriken action for now. She is still mastering her skills at laughing the enemy to death. But she will not be spared from vigorous ninja weapons training.

This is going to be deep:
