about this story

One day a caterpillar named paco inched along the gravel path when suddenly, a giant orange creature landed with a thud, in front of him, "Oh my, you scared me half to death!" The caterpillar said with surprise. The orange creature didn't reply, it simply sat there, blocking Paco's way. "Pardon me, but if you don't mind, I would appreciate it if you wouldn't mind moving please?" Paco asked politely, a little terrified of the beast which stood before him. Before Paco could do anything, out of nowhere a hand swooped down and scooped him up harshly. He gave a shriek of fear as this took him by surprise, for he never saw this coming. He questioned of where or what would happen to him next. What could possibly happen next? He pondered to himself.
He looked up at the monsterous creature that had taken him from his previous position. The monster brought paco up to it's mouth. Paco felt a shiver go down his non-existent spine. He inched back in fear that it was going to eat him. "please, sir, let me go, don't eat me! I beg you!" He cried out. Suddenly the beast's mouth began to move as it spoke. He couldn't understand the monster's strange language but could only feel the heat omitting from it's mouth. Finally it stopped and it began to move, what would happen next?
Paco tilted his head up to see a sign, it read "Tanger bar", what is this strange place? He thought as the beast opened giant rectangular things (doors) and entered the building. Heat inveloped him immediately. Noises could be heard at every corner, the same language that the beast spoke. He was set down on a hard surface, it was dark brown and cold under his little feet. Out of nowhere, a transparent, cylinder dome was placed over Paco, trapping him. "please don't hurt me!" He said softly as he coward in fear. Paco was left alone for the longest time. The dome was heating up, Paco feared that he might pass out from lack of oxygen and heat stroke.
As Paco lay, dying, finally a miracle happened. The dome lifted up into the sky, freeing him, but, the miracle didn't last forever. Next thing Paco knew, a brown thing was being shoved into his little face. Paco saw the casing of this thing, it read "Mars bar". The mars bar shoved him to the ground. He closed his eyes, awaiting death. But the mars bar was eventually taken away. Paco couldn't take it anymore. He stood up, his little legs shaking, and ran.
He ran as fast as his little legs could go, carrying his damaged body. He ran through the giant rectangles (doors) and out of the building. He ran across the street and into the forest, all the way home, which was a giant, wooden statue. Paco lived happily ever after, never disturbed again.
