It’s been hours since Dottie fell asleep in that dark compact closet, but Coco managed to stay awake. It was quite boring for cat to occupy herself when there was no yarn, or mice to play with. So, she would muse about how if she were a human she’d open the closet door, and explore. But than musing got boring so she stared into Dottie’s eyes patiently waiting. She sat there staring for so long that for a split second she was convinced she had passed away, but she heard breathing. Then a lighting bolt struck her. If she licked Dottie maybe that would make her wake up. Coco vigorously licked Dottie’s face over, and over. Finally, Dottie rolled over onto her side. Coco gracefully jumped off her stomach, onto Dottie’s arm, and accidentally pierced it. Dottie jumped up, and landed on her feet.
“Oww, Coco!”, Dottie scolded. “I thought you knew better than that”. Then Dottie scrutinized her arm looking for blood, or least a scratch. Coming to her senses Dottie thought about what she should do.
“Might as well find out where we are”, Dottie mumbled to herself. “Come on, Coco!”, Dottie commanded. She picked up Coco, and walked out of the closet.
Her house was a mess. Glass shatters everywhere, beds turned over, and the smell of garbage stained the inside of the house. Dottie put her hand on the front door knob.
“This is it, Coco”, Dottie stated looking down at her cat. She tightly squeezed her eyes, and opened the door.
“Coco, you look first”, She said cravenly.
Coco opened her big black eyes. She couldn’t believe it. Her eyes nearly popped out as she looked around. The sky was beaming, grass shined, and the leaves were in the process of changing. This place is more than safe she thought. She meowed to Dottie telling her everything was fine.
“Okay”, Dottie replied warily. “One, two, three!”, She quickly whipped her eyes open.
Where was she, Dottie thought. Somewhere way better than the farm!
“Coco, we must be in a dream!”, She squealed, and then kept on blinking, and pinching herself.
Coco meowed, and pointed her ear to the left. But Dottie was to busy blinking, and saying “Oww”, from the pinches. Coco reiterated, but in louder tone.
“Coco, it’s rude to interrupt”, Dottie turned around then scolded. Just before she turned back she saw figures in the distance.
“Coco, look!”, Dottie pointed to the left.
Seeing these figures was not a shock to the little cat. She was trying to tell her this the whole time, but Dottie will never know that.
“Do you they’re friendly?”, Dottie questioned.
Coco thought, You didn’t want to hear what I had to say last time, but now you do? Instead Coco just shrugged her shoulders.
“I hope so”, Dottie whispered, and the charged off in that direction.
She was soon only a feet away from these very small girls, who Dottie called “Figures”. It looked like they just had a picnic.
“Hello!”, Dottie said with an amicable smile.
“Uh, hi”, The girl with the floral hat said.
She looked about 15 but she is just extremely small, or maybe I’m just very big, Dottie thought. Noticing there was an awkward silence she decided to ask a question.
“I was wondering where are we?”, Dottie questioned.
“This is The Ville of Tov”, A girl with a red jacket said. “Do you need me to call the owner of this land?”.
“Umm…yes please”, Dottie slowly answered.
Out of nowhere this woman with caramel hair, and a polka-dot sundress appeared.
“Did somebody call me?”, she asked.
“Why, yes!”, The girl with the red jacket said. “This girl is lost”.
Dottie thought, I just asked where I was! I never said I was lost, but the truth is I am.
“Oh, well where are you trying to go?”, The owner asked.
Dottie pondered on what to say for a while, “Hmm…..I don’t know”.
The owner was silent for a couple moments.
“I know where you can go”, The owner answered. “Sapphire Metropolis”.
What?!? That is the exact place her Dad would tell her stories about!, Dottie thought.
“Yes, that is the perfect place!”, Dottie squealed. “How do I get there?”.
The owner’s face turned blank like she remembered something bad.
“Well, before you go I have to give you these”, The owner said while handing her a pair of sparkly sneakers.
“Thank you, but what are these for”, Dottie tried to ask politely.
“There is a shape shifter on the loose”, She stated.
“What?”, Dottie said while putting on the sparkly shoes.
“There is this woman who can change into different figures, she steals thing that’ll give her power.”, She explained. “The shoes will protect you on your journey”.
“Okay”, Dottie said. “Is she after these shoes?”.
“Unfortunately, yes. She is”, She responded. “But she can’t take them off you unless you take them off for her”.
Then this blonde haired girl walked to the girls who just had a picnic.
“Who are you?”, the girl with the floral hat asked.
The blonde haired girl showed them her outfit. Then they instantly knew who she was. I caught a glimpse of the outfit. It was a floral dress with a band around her waist that said “Lie”.
The owner seemed to know who she was too. “Lie” why would someone wear a dress like that, She thought.
“Now, go to the right, and turn left”, The owner instructed.
“Excuse me for interrupting, but I know a shortcut, The blonde haired girl said. “Walk straight then turn left”.
“Thank you!”, Dottie replied relieved that she could get there faster.
“No problem”, the blonde haired girl said.
“Bye everyone, and thank you!”, Dottie said humbly.
She started walking multiple feet away. She was nervous, but then remembered to have fortitude. She could hear everyone wishing her good luck behind her.
“This is it, Coco”, Dottie said trying to have courage. “This is it”.
