Nuisance and the Nine Golden Keys – p.1

March 7, 2013 at 12:47 pm 2 comments

In a land of silver rivers, emerald trees, and ruby sunsets, there lived a plain brown mouse. His name was Nuisance, and he was very good at always being in the way. His mother had always pushed him to the side as she went about her chores. “Oh, you are a nuisance, Nuisance!” His brothers and sisters used to scamper over and around him. “Nuisance, you’re so slow, make way!” All his life, Nuisance was a bother to everyone he knew.

One day, Nuisance was in a field of harvested grain, looking for his supper, when it began to rain. It was a particularly heavy rain, the kind that could quickly wash away a tiny mouse. The stripped, empty grain stalks offered little shelter, so Nuisance ran towards a human dwelling that he usually avoided. It was a farmer’s cottage, and Nuisance knew that the farmer kept cats, so he was very careful as he approached.

There were plenty of wonderful places to hide; wooden barrels, stacks of hay, piles of boxes, but guarding them all was a fat grey cat named Rascal. He sat atop a bag of grain on the front step of the cottage, and when he saw Nuisance coming his tail went swish-swish-swish.
