My Exploding Cat

Just stories and drawings really, no actual fissile felines.

Chapter 5

Jane screamed. Why was Lila floating? Jane didn’t see anything that would tell.


Lila looked down. She was floating! Why?

“Are you thinking what I’m thinking?” Lila asked.

Jane nodded. “I don’t think it’s going to do any harm, but it would be hard to explain to anyone else. Wait a sec… I read this in a book. Relax,” Jane said.

Lila relaxed. Out spread a pair of blue-and-green wings. She stayed in the air. Jane whistled.

“Well. THAT explains a lot.”

“What is it? Has Leo stuck a helicopter to my head again? He is going to GET IT.”

“Um. Just watch I probably have the same effect as you, so watch this.” Jane held her breath and tightened her shoulders. Up she went. She let her breath go, loosened her shoulders, and relaxed. Jane had yellow wings, unlike Lila, who just stood there, not knowing what to say.

Jane glanced behind her. “Yep. Mine are yellow, but yours are blue and green.”

“We’re fairies?” Lila was still shocked.

“Yeah. I think the hot chocolate did this. Like I said, it’s not really ‘normal’ but it’s not going to do any harm to our lives either.”

“Now I’m curious.” Lila said.

“About what?” Jane was curious about what Lila was curious about.

“Do you think that there are other fairies than us?”

“Probably. Why wouldn’t there be?” Jane said.

“Let’s find out. Tell your mom that you are staying at my house, and I’ll tell my mom I’m staying at yours. Then you and I can fly above the clouds and look for other fairies.” Lila said. “I think we’d better use our money buy lunch meat and lettuce and bread to make sandwiches. Put your insulated lunch bag in your backpack so we can keep the stuff in there, and it won’t spoil.”

“Why use our money?” Jane asked.

“Kids who are at a friend’s house for the night don’t make food vanish out of the refrigerator. Yes, moms notice.”

“I can only imagine how you know that,” Jane giggled.
