Mole vs Earthworm – An unanticipated seige (Part 3)

3. In a desperate attempt to end the siege, the wily Earthworm scientists try out some alternative methods of getting out. They soon find some draw backs to their defensive barrier.  Two met their ends at the net of underground explosives (meant to scare off any tunneling Moles); One Mole is very shaken up after trying an improvised jack hammer on the surrounding rock wall; And one Earthworm’s smile changes to despair as his shrinking potion works but doesn’t stop working. Before long he is small enough to squeeze past the Mole blocking the exit, and then he is too small to make a difference anyway.Seige_041. The Earthworm’s celebrated as a giant ‘brute of  a Mole’ was brought down by a fiendish trap left in the ceiling. Their shouts of joy soon turned into cries of dismay however, as they realized that the dead Mole was so big that it effectively blocked the passage! All was not lost as they still had the escape through to the top. The desolation in front of the Mole is due to a later attempt at removing the Mole by letting off an explosive in front it to clear the way. This succeeded only in blowing down their own door.

2. The Earthworms were not worried however. They knew they still had the above ground exit. Upon reaching it however, their slip sliding slid to a sudden halt. A Mole’s bum was covering the exit. The simple Mole had actually not even noticed the disguised exit and just seen the little indentation as a comfortable looking place to plop down on. He did notice that something was amiss when the Earthworms started struggling to get out though!

Mole vs Earthworm – An unanticipated seige

All’s been a bit quiet on the Mole vs Earthworm front for a while but rest assured that this has been due to lack of reporting rather then lack of activity! This reporter has been busy following one enlightened Mole and recording its story but now back to the action!

This event happened to a fairly young colony of Earthworms. The Earthworm tacticians had chosen the spot because of its natural fortifications. The little base was soon discovered by the Moles however and hostilities began at once!

Mole VS Earthworm – Earthworm HQ

Earthworm_HQ

1.  A stalwart Earthworm mans (or worms) the ballista, firing shots under the guidance of his wormy compatre. Two bloodthirsty Moles are unperturbed by the deluge.

2. A young recruit sizes himself up against a dummy Mole made of grass…He doesn’t fancy his chances.

3. The Earthworm tacticians are constantly analyzing battlefield statistics, desperately seeking to eek out a win.

4. The heavily fortified underground entrance to the Earthworm HQ means certain death to any Mole foolish enough (or hungry enough) to seek entrance.

5. The Earthworm king sits enthroned on his grand stone chair, contemplating the survival of his species.

6. The king’s ailing father lies in his bed. He may be senile, but this power hungry worm is still unwilling to let go of ‘his’ command.

7. The head of one diligent young Earthworm shoots up into the air in response to the teachers question (or possibly to ask to go to the toilet). The Earthworm offspring are indoctrinated from an early age to recognize their enemy.

8. The brightest minds in the Earthworm kingdom (not necessarily the ‘sane-ist’) work industriously, inventing high tech gadgetry to aid their troops. A large headed worm decimates a target with his state of the art, grass powered flame thrower while the latest in bio technology creates a glowing blue stone that is capable of creating a worm of superworm capabilities.

9. A foolish Mole digs mindlessly, unaware that it will soon be trapped, the unwilling test subject of the weapons invented next door (and possible play mate of unnaturally capable worm).
