Interview With A Wood Goblin
As those who have been following my regular “Goblin Tales For Adults” updates on my blog will be aware, I have been charged with chronicling a series of goblin tales. My guest today is none other than Globular Van Der Graff, a wood goblin of great repute, and the source of the tales.
2.30am, Saturday 10th September 2011
Jack – Good morning Globular
Globular – Good morning Jack, please call me Glob
Jack – Thank you. I was wondering if you would mind answering a few questions for our readers?
Globular – Of course, I’s be happy to
Jack – May I ask why you chose me to be your chronicler?
Globular – well, I’s chose yer cos yer has an opens mind, unlike most other humans does, plus I’s knew yer human ancestor Olin
Jack – you mean I am related to Olin son of queen Morag – incredible! To get back to my reason for requesting this interview, I have just finished writing down the twentieth tale which you dictated to me two nights ago Glob, how many more do you intend to dictate?
Globular – I’s has ten more that immediately spring to minds yung human
Jack – I see. Well in that case Glob, may I ask why you insist on visiting me here in my home at such a strange hour?
Globular – Since humans tooks over the world, we’s don’t feels safe in daylights I’s afraid to says Jack
Jack – But we’re not all evil are we?
Globular – Aye, that’s true enuff lad. But stills, being as I’s so small, I ain’t takin no chances on bein discovered.
Jack – How old are you and how many of your ancient kind are left in the world Glob?
At this point in the interview Glob fell silent for a long time, gave me a strange look and vanished. I do hope he will return because he still has many tales to dictate to me. Clearly I have upset him. Maybe I went a step too far by asking him his age, I cannot tell.
Hopefully I will have more to report later.
