this is a story of how i found my best friend gorgon. me and my family moved into this new house and there was a door with many locks on it in thee closet in the back corner of the basement which we hardly went in as it was, but on this day i was feeling adventurous so i went down to the door and broke all the locks off and inside i found this monster that was as big as i was with red eyes and a reptilian body but he stood and had the mannerisms of a human. to my surprise however he just looked at me with soft eyes as if he was so happy to see someone in so long. for a while i kept him in that room because i frankly just didnt know what to do with it but after a while i began to feel sorry for the creature being so alone even though i would go down and play soccer with a make shift goal he still was so sad when i had to leave. i finally introduced him to my parents and told them where i found him and of course at first glance they were horrified however after seeing how sad he looked after scaring them so much they could tell that he had compassion as gorgon went to hide because he was scared of the screams my parents went and got him from behind the table and were trying to calm him down. i hardly even had to explain anything further they already loved gorgon as much as i did i began keeping him in my room and surrounded him with informational books and i kept shows on that were informative yet very interesting, he has now become our household pet and even though he is somewhat of a secret anyone who has ever tried to sneak into our k=house has had a terrifing encounter, i dont know how but he just seems to want too protect his family, i have had him for about 4 years now and he is begining to speak english not really words its more of just scattered letters right now but i feel as if the alphabet is a good step in the right direction. every night i also selfishly use him as my own kind of diary that i tell everything too and he just loves to sit and listen. i feel as if all the stories i have told him even if he may not understand fully he seems to grow emotions from my stories. if you know me personally then you know that i only want people to feel loved and that is a trait i pass down to him.
