Nuisance and the Nine Golden Keys – p.8

March 27, 2013 at 11:09 am 1 comment

The ground was still very wet from the rains, but Nuisance ran as fast as he could, splashing mud on his belly and the golden keys. He did not stop running until he’d come out on the other side of the field. He headed for the safety of a copse of trees, where he knew there was a hole in the trunk of an oak that he could hide in.

Once inside, he dropped the keys and tried to catch his breath. He listened very carefully for the sound of either the cat or dog, but heard nothing. After several minutes, he decided it was safe to venture out. He was very hungry.

He foraged among the trees and found some seeds, nibbled on some loose bark, and then headed back to the hole in the oak. He froze in his tracks when he saw that a large squirrel was blocking the entrance. He’d never won a fight with a squirrel, and tried to avoid them. He wondered if he was better off in the barn after all.

The squirrel ducked inside the hole, then quickly came back out, chattering and making a terrible noise. “Ow! Tch! Shiny food hurt my teeth!”
