Where lost balls go to be found again

Once upon a time, during a game of street cricket, a taped-up tennis ball was hit so hard that it ended up in a dark alley. The alley had no way in, nor did it have a way out. The ball lay there, waiting for its owner to come looking for it. But alas, that never happened.

Years went by and the ball was never picked up. The rain, wind, and the dust took a toll on its figure, and the tape began to show signs of tear and strain, giving the ball a mummified appearance. It seemed as if the ball was worn out due to the continuous friction caused by rubbing it against the groin region of a fast bowler’s trousers.

Enraged with the children who never came to its rescue, the taped-up ball turned into a vicious ball monster and vowed to terrorise kids by taking away the things they love the most – their balls.

From tennis balls to the footballs flying out of Old Trafford, all the balls that left their owners sight for a single minute were taken by this monster, to be brainwashed, to be controlled mercilessly. It formed its own army of balls and began to chase away anyone who tried to retrieve them.
