My Exploding Cat

Just stories and drawings really, no actual fissile felines.

Chapter 13

Lila naturally radiated light, but she could also bend sunlight to magnify it using a sort of invisible magic mirror, and she did it now, blinding Leo. This was natural faerie self-defense, and Lila didn’t notice that it was Leo she was battling.

“Hey!”

“Lila, quit it!” Maya to the rescue.

“What? Some of Leo’s FRIENDS have come here, probably to pick him up.”

“Um, that’s Leo!”

Surprised, Lila flew into a nearby tree and turned off the light spell. Lila was one who was so used to things attacking her that, when caught by surprise, can and will attack anything she sees. Sometimes this works and sometimes it becomes…

“…awkward…” Leo said.

Nobody said anything. Even the chittering Chikik had stopped their conversations to join the silence. A pin dropped, and everyone heard it.

“Um, we should just go,” Maya said. The conversations started again, because Maya had broken the ice. “To the dragon forest. Toby told me that you saw the old rambling military guy in his cottage.”

“Who’s Toby?” Leo asked. He looked at Lila.

Maya discreetly jerked a thumb toward a tree.

“We should GO,” Lila said. “We’ll explain on the way.”
