My Exploding Cat

Just stories and drawings really, no actual fissile felines.

Chapter 3

“So we go now, then?” Sophie asked.
“No. You’re not ready. It’s not time yet. In the Mirrorworld, things are exactly the opposite they are here.”
“You mean that the children are nice and have clean language?”
“Ha ha. I mean that all the laws are reversed and everything. If you don’t speed on the road and stop at all the red lights, then cops give you a ticket. If you say please and thank you, you get your mouth washed out with soap. And yes – the children are nice and behave and sit quietly in class… but that’s their way of rebelling. So in a way, even if you are very nice in the Mirrorworld, you are still rebelling against what the teacher wants you to do, which is no work at all.” Mage gave a serious look.
“Hm,” Daniel said. He knew more than a few kids who would kill for a teacher like that. Paaaaaaaaaaar-tay!
“So you are going to have to spend a lot of time imagining what it’ll be like there before you go,” Mage said.
“Plus, it’s traditional for humans to stay and, quote-on-quote, “train” for a year,” Tress added. “Fairies don’t do that, typically, unless it’s a huge battle where the enemy attacks first. Fairies like to get the business finished and be done with it.”
“Well,” Sophie said. “So, whatever. We wait for a year. Do we even need training? This is a quest, not a battle.”
“No,” Mage said, and sort of eyed Tress, if a book can do that. He had a look about him that revealed what he was thinking, however; it said, “Yes, but you don’t need to worry about it. The world is much, much more complicated than you could ever imagine…”
