In the town the drains started to bubble... and when each bubble popped a sickly sweet scent drifted along the pavement. The smell was sometimes revolting and then at the same time wonderfully aromatic. After one wave of bubbles gently drifted off on the breeze something started emerging from the main drain. The drain cover was only about six inches square and just made the slightest 'pop' as it came loose. A squishy violet blob started to poke against the underside of the drain, slowly emerging and stretching.. As it oozed out of the drain it seemed to grow and almost fit into the alley from wall to wall. It was preternatural, dripping slime and gore as it licked the bricks hungrily. If it managed to get to the lake all hope may be lost, the townsfolk were terrified. There was no more salt to be found, all had been collected ready to defeat the being in the lake. Can anyone out there banish the slug?
