THE BAND OF THE GREEN DINO II

Mario: “This is hopeless. The wind blew down everything we raised last time. This work is never going to finish. I’m done with it.”
Wally: “It’s in times like this that I’d give everything to be friends with the Constructicons. They’ll finish it in minutes.”
Shades: “You’d be deceived if you were their friend, Wally. Ask Omega Red and he’ll tell you. Constructicons are Decepticons and they’ll only trick us and dispossess us of our house at the end of the day.”

Jeremy: “This is no time to talk discouragement. Everyone, back to work or we’ll never finish this. Pass the shovel, Denver. Our monument didn’t stand the wind because we didn’t dig enough. We’ll have to dig even deeper if we want a strong foundation.”
Mario: “What do you know about building, Jeremy? I told you we had to ask for help but Mr Brain thought he could do without the Builders.”

Jeremy: “Who needs the Builders when we have this book? Everything is here, Mario. We can do it if we really put ourselves into digging, instead of hanging out exposing unbelief. Our only problem is the sand. We must handle it on a large scale if our house has to be solid. But I don’t know how we’re going to do it. No worries. I’m sure we’ll find something once we’re done digging; though I can’t help thinking that if Terrax the Tamer was here, he would quickly bend the sand for a firm foundation.”
Shades: “You’d be sorry for yourself if Terrax the Tamer was here. He’ll wreck this place with his cosmic scythe and turn it upside down. And you think he’ll stop there? Nooo. He’ll create a bolt to strike the sea and push the waters inland. Then the mighty waters will rise and flood the entire region. Our beach and whatever hut we managed to build will all disappear.”

Jeremy: “You’re not helping, Shades. Come on, guys; you want our dream house to be reality or just imagination? It’s as if I’m the only one who’s on the project. Denver, follow me and let’s start digging.”
Denver (mimicking fatigue): “I’m tired.”

Mario: “You see, Jeremy; even Denver is exhausted. If you can’t do something, you can’t do it. We tried several times in the past and didn’t succeed. I’m seriously thinking we should get help instead of relying on your book.”
Jeremy: “It’s your pessimism that will make us not have this house any time soon.”
Wally: “Guys, have you noticed the man under the tree?”

Shades: “Yeah; the watcher. And he’s not even trying to be discreet. A poorly educated kid.”
Mario: “Like you, Shades.”
Wally: “His build is like that of a superhero. Maybe he can help in the construction. What do you think?”
