My Exploding Cat

Just stories and drawings really, no actual fissile felines.

Chapter 1

Maya Roxanne Peterson, age 11, was sitting on the swing of the Peterson’s big backyard. This was near the old oak tree which, today, was shading her as she sat. She always liked that oak tree. Today she sat there, staring at the clouds. She didn’t know what she was looking for, really. Suddenly she saw an elf-like figure staring back at her. He/she/it seemed to be saying something to her, silently, but Maya couldn’t quite figure it out. When she cast her gaze on the old oak, wondering, she was sure she saw something behind it move.

Now she glanced over to Lila, her sister, and Leo, her brother. Leo was nine and Lila was seven. They were locked in a game of Armies. Leo moved one of his little green army guys forward, and Lila shot a cannonball from the little cannon made of Ogels (building blocks). It knocked down three of Leo’s army guys. Maya never really played it much, except on rainy days, when she was bored out of her mind. She heard leaves rustling, but the wind wasn’t blowing. Either she was paranoid or something strange was happening!

“Lila! Leo! Maya! Time to go to Floor-Mart!” Their mother called.

Lila and Leo groaned. Maya got up and they all went to the store.

    Funny note: The “ogels” mentioned are actually “legos” spelled backwards. Secrets of the site.
