‘Is that the makings of a moustache sprouting on his top lip?’


Falcon Boy 1: 5 ‘The Cowardly Jumpy Nolan’ Part 3

Stun stood still and was stabbed by the stalk. Jumpy and his friends grabbed more cabbages and began to advance on poor Stun. Stun stood his ground but stood no chance. The toughs were almost upon the gardener when they suddenly stopped and stared. Running towards them full-pelt were two men wearing strange-looking costumes.

The smaller of the two wore a bright blue beak-hat-mask held together with industrial tape, with a yellow t-shirt hanging untucked over a navy blue boiler suit. The letters F and B were crudely potato-printed onto the t-shirt. Two curved silver feathers bordered the letters. Heavy-looking walking shoes completed this outfit. Even from this distance, everyone could see that the man had the makings of a moustache sprouting on his top lip.

The other man stumbled as he ran because his boots were made to look like a bird’s feet. Unfortunately, the claws were too long and they kept getting caught beneath each other. He also sported a golden cloak that was tattered at the edges and beneath this the toughs could see a red shiny bodysuit with ‘BB’ badly-sewn onto a golden shield on his chest. A simple golden band covered his eyes.

‘Jumping Jupiter,’ shouted Falcon Boy, for that is who was wearing the yellow t-shirt, ‘we’ll have none of that nonsense round here.’ The other hero didn’t say anything. He just shook his fists. Falcon Boy kept on shouting as they raced to the rescue.

Author: Barnaby Taylor

Inspired by his passion for films and video games, Barnaby Taylor loves writing dystopian science fiction and horror. He has recently written the VIRO series about a gang of teenagers struggling to survive in a world overrun by the infected. There are currently three books in the series and Book Four is on the way. VIRO is rapidly infecting the Amazon charts and gaining rave reviews along the way. Here's one of the latest reviews: 'I found myself sucked right into the characters and never-ending action and gore page after page. I very rarely buy books, but immediately purchased number two which I found equally as engrossing. Yesterday I bought book three in the VIRO series and instead of a good night's sleep I've got red eyes and a need for Red Bull! Fantastic series for all my zombie lovers out there!' Book One is currently FREE to download at the following links: http://bit.ly/VIRO1UKKindle http://bit.ly/VIROBOOK1 Barnaby posts weekly updates on his writing on his blog and you can follow these updates at www.falconboy.ie.
