monster metafiction 4: obluda, se probouzi

This is the last known children storybook featured in the series. “Obluda, Se Probouzi” was featured in “Monster” supplement: “Another Monster,” as an additional side-story. Said to be found in a place where “Another Monster” ‘s author, Werner Weber gone missing, “Obluda, Se Probouzi” left its author unknown.  This is also the very story which I mentioned before. That very one story left an utter bad aftertaste, at least for me…Reading this one I strongly presume there is another monster that imitate Johan’s existence, or rather Johan himself turn into another monster with another purpose. Who knows? *chuckles*

 

Obluda, Se Probouzi (The Awakens Monster)

author unknown

 

December 2001, when the Austrian journalist and the author of “ANOTHER MONSTER”, Mr. Werner Weber has been reported missing, this manuscript was found in one of the rooms at the Pelican Hotel in the Bohemia region of Czech where Mr. Weber seemed to have stayed.

 

There was a big gigantic rock
that blocked a cave.
It was said that a monster sleeps in the cave.
That was the spoken legend.

It was said that the person who wakes the monster will possess everything in the world.
In the village, there was a most unfortunate youth
who cannot help but wishes for everything in the world.

The youth asked an old villager.
“What should one do to awake the monster?”
The old man spoke.
“With the name of the person most loved in the world, call out to the monster.”

Around that time, there was a wedding in the village.
Everyone seems to be having fun singing and dancing.

The youth thought, as he saw the bride and the groom.
“I know the name of the person most loved in the world!”

The youth shouted out at the cave the names of the bride and the groom.
“Majenka!!”
“Pepiicheku!!”

But the monster did not wake up.

Well-loved was the strongest man in the village.
The youth thought,
“I know the name of the person most loved in the world!”

The youth shouted out at the cave the man’s name.
“Ijiiku!!”
The monster did not wake up.

There was a person who is most proud of her voice in the village.
Everyone listens to her beautiful voice in ecatasy.
The youth thought,
“I know the name of the person most loved in the world!”
The youth shouted out at the cave the name of the person.
“Maidarenka!!”
The monster did not wake up.

There was a granny and a grandpa who were married for a long, long time.>
Many children they have, and many grandchildren.
The youth thought,
“I know the name of the person most loved in the world!”

The youth shouted out at the cave.
“Bojenka!!”
“Venousheku!!”

The monster did not wake up.

The youth saw many people who are well-loved;
feeling as though he possesses everything in the world, he has forgotten all about going back to the cave.

However, one day,
at the outskirts of the village he met a woman who was crying.
“My child is missing”
“My child has mysteriously disappeared”
While crying, the woman spoke of how she has loved her child.
Lastly, the child’s name reached the youth’s ears.
The youth was surprised.
And he thought,
“I know the name of the person most loved in the world!”

The youth hurried to the cave.
“The name of the woman’s child is the same as mine!”
“The name of the person most loved in the world, is the same as mine!”

Facing the cave, the youth shouted out in a loud voice his name.The rock slowly moved.
At the instant the youth saw the monster…

*BARI BARI GUSHA GUSHA BAKI BAKI GOKUN*

The name of the youth was…
