“I’d like to introduce all of you to someone I just met recently,” said Dean Sanderson. “His name is Blake Riley and he feels that he could be a great support to our intended project. Would you be willing to address the rest of the group, Mr. Riley?”
“You guys can just call me Blake. I have been interested in all aspects of cryptozoology. For most of my life I have been especially interested in lake monsters. I don’t mind saying that I’m a wealthy business man who has substantial resources that I’m willing to invest if the planned expedition meets my expectations.”
“What specific outcomes would you expect from our research project?” asked Lionel.
“Firstly we need to capture a live specimen of the creature, “answered Blake.
“You would want a piece of the creatures flesh to use for a scientific biopsy?” Lionel inquired.
“With all due respect, professor, I would consider our mission to be a failure if that’s the best we could do,” said Blake. ‘My goal is to capture the whole animal.”
“Have you have lost your mind, Mr. Riley? We aren’t even positive that this creature exists,” said Dean Sanderson.
“Although I firmly believe in the existence of Ogopogo, I feel that it would be a daunting task to capture one alive,” said Dr. Phelge.
“I would be happy just to get a close up video of the lake demon,” said Ryan.
“If we could get a tissue sample from the animal we would accomplish what no one yet has managed to do,” added Monique giving her ponytail a good shake.
“If we even got one good sighting just think what a great story we would have for the university’s newspaper,” said Kyle, speaking on behalf of the students.
“I’m hoping that we can put together a great book based on our research and findings during our search for Ogopogo,” said Jasmine.
