The Legend of 'Nessie'
by Hirotaka G.
A picture of Loch Ness
Have you ever heard of Nessie?? Nessie is the most famous imaginary(?) monster in the world which is supposed to inhabit a lake in the Scottish highlands. It is also said that Nessie is a large aquatic animal supposed to resemble a serpent or plesiosaur. Witnesses say "Nessie is so exceedingly large as to suggest it survives from the age of the dinosaurs!!"
The first record of sighting of Nessie appeared in the 6th century. And from 1933 onward, the number of eyewitness testimonies have increased. In the same year, in May, a married couple who keep a hotel around Loch Ness were covered by the media as witnesses of Nessie, and in November, a photo of Nessie gathered attention all over the world!! The gossip "plesiosaur of the age of dinosaurs may be alive in Loch Ness" whipped up everyone's romantic spirit!!
However, modern science proved Nessie is an imaginary monster. Scientists say that "Nessie can't be alive today" unanimously. But in 2005, an enormous material resembling a fang was discovered with the corpse of a deer around Loch Ness!! Who on earth killed the deer?? Whose on earth fang is that??
Is there a Nessie, as a real existence??
