The Breaking Point
Everything has a breaking point. Sticks. Stones. People. Relationships. The question is, can you ever put it back together?S
A troublesome bully pushes a shy gamer too far.
While on an epic quest for friendship, a young scientist accidentally unleashes a giant monster on his school, and must take super heroic action to clean up his mess.
I really wanted to explore a story similar to the Lion and The Mouse from Aesop’s Fables. In that story, the Mouse accidentally wakes up the Lion, and the Lion spares the Mouse’s life instead of killing him. Later, when the Lion gets a thorn in his paw, only the Mouse is small enough to remove it for him!
For my story, I decided to exchange the Mouse for an all-powerful Superhero, and really turn up the volume on our Lion, a giant Slime Monster.
