TITLE: Mr. Grumbles
GENRE: MG Fiction
One overcast, night in Miami, Florida, a small car stopped, for a moment, in front of a yellow house. A black cotton bag landed on the driveway, and big yellow eyes from inside watched the car as it drove away into the night.
“Wait! Come back!! Don’t leave me here!!!” a kitten cried.
The kitten, with shiny black fur, peered up the driveway. His fur was scattered: with white hairs. A blaze of about twenty heaths under his neck. He had a black nose and big yellow eyes.
“Hello... Is anyone here?”
Clouds moved in, winds picked up, and rain started to fall. However, the kitten looked for a dry place. He scurried up the driveway, and dashed under a tan car, just as the sky opened up with a gush of heavy rain. There, feeling safer, he curled up in a tiny ball, and watched the rain fall.
“Why did they leave me here? What did I do? Mommy...
I want my mommy. Why did she let them take me away? He wondered. Mommy...”
Slowly the kitten’s eyes became heavy, and he fell asleep.
The next morning the kitten woke, to the sound of birds singing. He came out from under the car, and looked around, and his stomach started to growl. Two brown, anole lizards were sunbathing. He hunched his stomach down low to the ground and pounced! The kitten caught one of them by its tail under his paws.
