When Choco was a child, her father took her to a prehistoric museum just a short train ride away.
Seeing all the great dinosaur skeletons and models, reading every exhibit plaque, sitting attentively through all of the showcase lectures and educational videos, Choco became infatuated with dinosaurs, wishing they were still alive today.
Growing up, young Choco would regularly travel to the museum herself just to marvel at the dinosaurs. Her room was full of dinosaur toys, with shelves full of fiction about dinos, and even several scientific journals exploring the history of the Mesozoic era in which Choco cross-referenced the lot of them to formulate her own perceived vision of the past.
Choco's love of dinosaurs peaked one fateful day. On what was a routine visit to the museum, welcomed by all of the employees who knew her by name, they had just installed a new exhibit: A 1:1 scale model of a Spinosaurus, it's splendid large ridged back towering over the middle schooler.
Of course Choco had seen representations of it in books and other parts of the museum, but to have its form fully realized in front of her... it was love at first sight. Choco's dinosaur craze had peaked, and every waking moment for the next year or two was spent just thinking about spinosaurus.
As time passed, Choco's overt expressions of love of dinosaurs gradually faded and she led an ordinary high school and young adult life. Fast forward to recent days, and Choco is introduced to a video game called ARK: Survival Evolved. The very first thing she notices...
And not just dinosaurs, HER dinosaur.
Choco was reunited once more with her first love, Spinosaurus, living happily ever after playing ARK in 12+ hour sittings.
