My Exploding Cat

Just stories and drawings really, no actual fissile felines.

Chapter 4

At lunch, Lila sat with Jane.

“Were you able to make anything out of that photosynthesis thing?” Jane asked.

“Not much.” Lila replied. “I don’t know why the teacher bothered.”

“The rest of the class couldn’t translate any of that junk!” Jane said. “Waste of time. Totally boring.”

“Totally,” Lila agreed.

“Not even Donna understood it. I’m surprised you got anything out of it.”

“Actually, everything seems easier today. Even Math.”

“Really?” Jane paused. “Has anything weird happened in the past few days? If Math is easy, I don’t know you.”

“Well…” Lila thought about telling Jane the hot chocolate story, then decided it could do no harm.

“So you drank it?” Jane stared at Lila like she was insane.

“Right. I thought it was just …” Lila paused defensively. “A wish come true.”

Jane’s head shook a little in uncertainty.

“But it heated me up for hours. After a while I had my snowsuit off.”

Jane raised an eyebrow.

“Completely,” Lila added.

Jane cocked her head and sighed.

“But since then it seems just to improve my grades,” Lila said.

“Can I have some?” Jane asked, suddenly approving of this mystery.

Lila just laughed.

Jane went to her friend’s house after school. Lila poured a cup of hot chocolate for Jane, who drank the whole mug with maybe a little too much pleasure. Soon Jane was feeling the same, and they were both enjoying it thoroughly.

But closely after, Jane was over at Lila’s house, and Lila was not on the ground!
