"Once upon a time, on a tiny island in the middle of the ocean, there lived a giant gorilla named Kong. The island was a terrifying place, and Kong had to be fierce in order to survive. Only the beautiful actress Ann Darrow understood how alone he was. Will Ann's kindness tame the mighty beast?"
On the lonely skull island lived the giant gorilla known as Kong. He lived a hard life on an island full of dinosaurs, bats, and giant insects. For nearly as long as Kong could remember, he had been the last of his kind, but once there had been a great and mighty species of creatures like him. After being given Ann Darrow as an offering by the local islanders, he began carrying her to his cave, but during their travels and many dinosaur battles, he came to get to know her, and began carrying her close to his chest like he would an infant of his species, rather than in his fist. However, as he tried to swing across a great chasm, the vines came loose and sent him tumbling to the floor of the crevice. There Kong saw an enormous gorilla, and he growled in defiance while Ann approached it, revealing and indicating to Kong that it was simply a statue of another member of Kong's species. Slowly Kong began to understand. he had been alone for so long that he had forgotten what he and his kind looked like. He missed being part of a family, but Ann helped him to remember that he had not always been the only one.
