In the year 2220 B.C., Genghis Rat rode his aardvark across the prairies of Central China. At the time, the Chinese had developed only a crude civilization, with minor despots ruling small city-states. Genghis was tired from riding. An aardvark wasn't the gentlest creature to ride. The sneaky beast bumped, bounced, and rattled over the almost level ground, dropping crap in it's wake. Behind the leader, Genghis, came a large horde of ravenous rats, needing food, drink, women, and loot, not necessarily in that order. They were a noisy, uneducated, group. Waving swords and tommy guns, they left ruin and desolation behind them, mixed with aardvark poop. A bouncing aardvark was seen ahead of them, racing back to the pack. It was the scout, Tommy Ratinski. Genghis held up his paw to stop the restless horde behind him; meanwhile pulling on the reins of his own steed, Homer. The grateful Homer stopped to eat grass while Genghis and the others waited for scout Tommy. The scout's aardvark eventually bounced to a halt next to Genghis Rat. It stood sweating and panting while Tommy gasped out what he had found up ahead. “A.... A.... A fight up ahead, boss,” he gasped out in a near panic, “humans fighting. A dozen of them against three women, a rat, a skunk and a human woman.” He gasped out. “All right, Tommy,” Genghis grinned, “what's the punchline? It's a lame joke anyway. I heard it before.” Genghis's grin widened. How dumb did they think he was. “Which one's the farmer's daughter?” “No, really boss. No joke, they're really fighting, a whole buncha' humans.” Tommy Ratinski insisted. “Then we better save the women.” Genghis turned and signaled his wild herd. “Let's go gettum' you guys.” The whole horde thundered over the hill on their bouncing aardvarks, to the rescue. When they crested the hill, the thundering rats saw the three women fighting for their lives, dead humans piled around them. The rat and skunk thrust and parried with their swords, while the human woman crouched down with a knife, afraid to join the fray. He heard the rat lady yell “Hiyyyyeeeeiii” and saw her jump up to stick her knife into the right eye of one human assailant while the skunk girl turned tail and used her last defense, spraying two others. The ineffectual human woman just waved her little knife in the air. By that time, Genghis and his pack of rats arrived, tearing the savages apart with their sharp blades and bouncing aardvarks. It was over in moments, none of the miscreants having a chance to escape. “Hey, you guys stand back there, I'm the boss.” Genghis had to shove and kick other rats out of the way. Everyone wanted to console the first two girls. The human stood up by herself, obviously afraid since her legs were still shaking. “You girls ok, now. We took care of those low-lifes?” Genghis asked, one arm around the girl rat and the other around the skunk. Her white striped tail coiled around Genghis's neck, clutching him in gratitude, and distracting him while she wiped her sword off on his fur. “Oh, thank you, Sir.” The rat girl kissed Genghis, bringing a low growl from the other rat gang members. “They would have violated us, a fate worse than dearth. The cheap bastards wouldn't even pay the going rate.” “And you think I will, ladies?” Genghis grinned and growled, grabbing them tighter while his men advanced. “Guess this just isn't your day.” As his men lined up to violate the two girls, Genghis, the rat, turned to the human female. No sexual interest there. She was big, bulky, and covered with tattoos yet. Click here to read the rest of this story (146 more lines)
