Big, Globby, Sloppy, Sleepy Monsters
The used-to-be ghosts grew taller and stronger, more handsome by the moment. But there were moans, rattles, whispers, and burps filtering through the stadium.
"We didn't know we were wonderful kids. We were just trying to get the goods and get out. These sounds make us little nervous," Jeremy said. "We didn't know that being Children of Alpha was a big, big help, and that being good-hearted was important. Just didn't know."
Omega smiled at them and they begin to glow in the light of love, health, direction, talent and learning. The ghosts actually had a future ahead of them, granted their future was in a very different place.
The noises got louder and louder. Out of the corner of his eye Petey spotted a big, globby, sloppy, sleepy monster with one eye. And then another, and then another. Thousands were climbing out from under the seats, slurping and burping their way toward Omega, and the whole gang. The monsters were greyish, flat, circles, more like sting rays.
"What are you guys? Tim asked.
"We're the monsters under the bed. Sometimes we hide out in closets too. We're pretty scary," the first monster said. And he burped.
"Really?" Petey said. "Are you out to get us?"
"If we can catch you. . . " the first monster said.
"Fat chance!" Omega said. And he held out his hands and bolts of lightning flew out of his finger tips, and landed on each of the monsters. Petey thought they were going to have fried monster for dinner.
But each little blast of lightning changed the monsters into baby angels. "Putti" the Italians call them. They were little fat baby angels, and they began to play and tumble over each other. And the burps and slurps turned into the sweet giggles and a few coos. Love.
Soon, all the monsters were turned into babies with wings.
Cheryl, Suzie, and Julie were in love with the angels and kissed their little feet and sang songs to them.
The football stadium turned into a great, big playpen for little angels.
Alpha turned the bad monsters into baby angels, and the ghostie boys into tall, strong, talented knights of love and heart. Omega said, "We get to have adventures, and we get to meet people, and things more or less turn out for the best. Now I'm gonna take them all home and check in with Alpha. Try not to get into too much trouble until I get back."
