The Daring Escape

‘Get down,’ the giant shouted. Victorson was so involved with his thoughts that he couldn’t realize that the carriage had come to a halt.

He got down. On his left, he saw a big row of glass cubicles closed from all the sides. Different creatures were locked in them. Some looked like men but had large wings on their bodies. Some were four-legged animals that Victorson had never seen before. Some of them had even two heads and four arms.

‘This is a prison. All these are prisoners who fell in the hidden river,’ the giant told Victorson. ‘These see-through walls are made up of a special element that can neither be broken nor burnt by ordinary means. You need a highly scientific process to do that. I’m regularly informed through the antenna atop my head if any of them tries to escape so that I could take necessary steps to avert that mischievous attempt.’

‘He has escaped.’

He also knew that the giant had underestimated Robojit’s combating powers.
