Part 7: The Cat’s Me ow

Oh boy! Things are worst than I thought. I think Tom has been in Carolyn’s House a little too long, the old stray cat blurted out.  Maybe not! exclaimed the yellow stray. Something may have happened to him at the shelter. I  heard you cried like a baby, Tom!

Do not discuss me as though I don’t exist, yelled Tom!  I can hear you too cautioned Carolyn. Well, gasped the yellow stray, looking at Tom: Did anything traumatic happened at the shelter?

If you call almost getting euthanized traumatic. Yes! Something traumatic happened! Before Carolyn and her owner came, an irksome family with a mischievous little boy tried to adopt me. At first, I thought being adopted by that family was better than death.  Later, I changed my mind. After their little boy stuck his tongue out at me and did all sorts of ugly things to me to  my face, I decided death would be better than going with that family.  When the shelter volunteer handed me to the little boy, I tried to scratch his eyes out. His parents felt we were not a good fit for one another. The volunteer put me back in the cage to be euthanized. Man! I was about to be soap, shampoo or horse feed.

I was super glad to see Carolyn and her owner. They saved my life!  Now we understand. You feel obligated to Carolyn. You don’t want to leave her. What are your plans when her owner takes her out to breed with a show cat, or  a cat of the same pedigree? That wont happen argued Carolyn. My owner promised she would have the Vet to artificially insert my womb. Her intentions were to sell the babies anyway after they are weaned. I love Tom, and you guys, my owner, my groomer nor my Vet will ever stop me from loving Tom.

Part 3: Why do the Stars Twinkle?

rt 3: Why do the Stars Twinkle?


The King continued; I forbid even one invitation be sent Due North! Do you all understand? Everyone present replied; yes, my Lord, we understand. We understand clearly. They all bowed as they spoke. King Leo then called for the printer. King Leo instructed the printer to begin at once. They must all be printed individually by hand. The printer said; as your command, your majesty.  Hear my words printer and take dictations as I speak. Duplicate these words so each king and Queen surrounding our little village receives an invitation.   Let them know they may bring as many persons from their royal court as they wish. Let them know this is a very honorable and proper occasion.  Let me repeat what I have written; blubbered the printer.

Come to King and Queen Goma‘s Ceremonial Blessing for Boy Baby Bar jar. The grand ceremony will take place the last Wednesday of the month in the grand ballroom on the East wing of the Palace.

But, old Great King Leo, please tell me why your old friends King Pardus and Queen Bella are not invited. All present gasped long and loud. Then they all cuddled up shaking in a small corner of the room.  With fire in King Leo’s eyes, he responded:  you have not heard how two years to this very year, two hours to this very hour, two minutes to this very moment, how my old friends King Pardus and Queen Bella insulted my wife and me? Oh, no, Old Great King, replied the printer. I had not heard. If it pains you, you don’t have to discuss it. I’m sorry I asked. Immediately the king leaves the room.  Queen Danielle tells the Printer; everything is okay. I will tell you everything that happened. The Printer says; no, no my lady! If it brings bad memories, don’t tell me. However, Queen Danielle misses her old friends so much. She instructs the printer to send them an invitation and for the sake of King Leo, ask them to come prepared to ask for forgiveness. One of Queen Danielle’s ladies in waiting asked; please my lady, forgiveness for what? This is when Danielle told them. While our old friends King Pardus and Queen Bella were visiting us, King Pardus made a silly remark. The first Lady-in-Lady asked; my Lady, what did he say that was so hurtful? Queen Danielle replied; he was only joking, I’m sure. The First Lady –in-Waiting wanted to know, what   did he say to  you your Royal Highness? Queen Danielle told them they said King Leo and I had four girls. It was such a dreadful thing to come from his mouth.  Second Lady-in-Waiting retorted; I don’t understand, my Lady. You see it is true. Until the birth of Baby Bar jar you did have four girls and they do have four boys! But…but….that was not all he said. He told King Leo it was not destiny for him to have a boy. You know that struck King Leo in the pride zone. Without a boy, there would be no one to carry on his legacy. Every King desires his royal legacy passed on by way of his legal heir.

Part 6: Don’t Rock That Dragon

Part 6: Don’t Rock That Dragon

The Prince told the King “I will get up that glassy hill, win the heart of your daughter and rid the country of that troublesome dragon”.
The King told the Young Suitor to get to it my son. The King didn’t realize that the Suitor would soon be his son. The Young Suitor whistled and his men as before grabbed the Troll and tied him up. The Young Prince whistled again, and his friends brought the dragon to him. To the King’s enormous surprise, the dragon lowered his head and the Prince got on his neck. The court gasped as the young suitor brought the Princess down to the King. The Princess told her father she would marry the Suitor. At that point, the most agonizing question of all was asked of the Prince. The King reminded the Prince. The prince promised to rid the country of the dragon. The King wanted to know how he planed to accomplish that great feat. The Suitor quickly retorted: I will take the dragon to my land. Everyone was reminded how the dragon had protected the Princess since they were both little.
Everyone knew the dragon was a gentle protector of the princess. The fire that came from the dragon’s nostril was not intended for harm, it was just something dragons do.
The Suitor told the King; I have a surprise for you. I too am a King and I will never–

Shake that dragon in the tree tops
I know the sound of mountains trebling
makes the trees fall
Then down comes the dragon
The King, the country and all

I have just one question. Who was it telling me not to rock those trees? The Princess briskly snapped; I was the one who told you not to shake that tree. The suitor wanted to know why. The suitor asserted; He seemed to be such a gentle dragon. The Princess told her future husband, not only did the dragon protect her and her father’s Kingdom, if put in a good place, he would could protect all good kingdoms.The Future King said: He shall have his place. The suitor took his bride and her dragon and rode off into the sunset.
There they lived happily every after.
