Susan William, a ten-year-old girl was running in the forest with a backpack behind her back bright early in the morning. Her ginger red hair was tied up in a cute braided and she wore her school uniform which it contains a dark blue long sleeves shirt and striped blue and white skirt. As she finally reaches her destination, she'd beamed through panting. A small cottage that is in the middle of the forest she did not hesitate to scurry down and reach for the door.
She gently knocks on the door."Mr. Edmund?"Wait for him to answer, again she'd knock quietly."Mr. Edmund? Are you home?"The girl notices the door was unlocked and gently peeks in."Hello?" See he was nowhere she walks in slowly and close the door behind her, but in slow so she won't be caught. Then she almost jumps in startled when she heard something growled and turn sharply towards the noise that scared her.
"Jewel shh! You're going to get me into trouble!"She hissed at the black cat, who was lying lazily on the window sill, licking her paw. Calming her breath, Susan walked softly on a wood floor and came upon a small cage, and inside of it was a young brown rabbit, sleeping. She touches the table and spoke softly.
"Westley? Are you awake?"She watches it twitch his long ear, and she whispered."Westley?"The brown rabbit turns his head tiredly. When he see who it was he perk his body up happily. The girl giggled to see him how excited he was she put her finger through the cage hole to pet his fur.
"Good morning sleepy head, have a good one?" Westley ruffed his fur, but she saw him glaring at the cat. She understood his mind and sighed.
"Did Jewel try to get you again?" He nods his head to her, still have cold look at her.
Susan huffed. "Well, she needs to know you don't like that. You need to show her who's the boss and… stand up for yourself."
"Susan?" She froze when she'd heard someone called her name. "What are you doing here?" She turns slowly and saw a man in his pajama pants and white shirt looking tired with his short grey-haired mess up with two grey mustaches.
"Um, nothing?" She answered, nervously. He notices her uniform and raised his eyebrow.
"Are you supposed to be in school?"
"…no."She lied."I-I got sick Mr. Edmund," She pretended to cough, using her arm to make a sick sound. But the man, named Edmund only gives her a small smirked.
"You used that excuse yesterday," He almost chuckled.
Susan notices she did and lower her arm down. "Oh, I did didn't I?" She can feel behind her back Westley was giving her an amusing look of her fibbing.
"You wanted to see my pet rabbit, do you?" He asked. She nods truthfully and Professor sighed heavily.
"Susan, I understand you wish to see him but you can't skip many schools." A girl crosses her arm when she heard that word, giving a pout expression.
"But I hate schools!" She complained. "I rather stay here and keep him company. He needs my attention,"
"Now Susan, children are meant to go to school to learn education." Professor went over and gently touches her shoulder after he had got down on his knees." And most importantly it'll teach golden ways of living in this world."
"But this a stupid school that won't let me have any fun. Even my mean teacher won't allow me to do things I want."She sees Westley snorted in corner of her eyes."He even agrees with me!"
Mr. Edmund laughed. "Oh, did she now? Its perhaps she's doesn't want you to get into some kind of trouble you've always get to."
"Well she doesn't have any good humor that's for sure," Susan huffed. Then Professor gives her a soft chuckled and ruffled her hair.
"Now, when I get myself cleaned up I'll take you to your private school." He said, getting up.
"But can I play with Westley?" Susan asked.
"Can I play with him? He needs to be out of that stinking cage," She watches Mr. Edmund rub his back neck in unsure and look at his rabbit for a second.
"He did have his small exercise yesterday due to your coming. He probably needs a break. And you need to be in school soon I can't.."
"Aw come on please!" Susan begged. "I promise this once I won't visit him until I'm done with school I swear!," She tried her best to make her puppy face for him to change his mind. Mr. Edmund rubbed his back neck and he sighed sharply after seconds later couldn't resist her pleading face.
"…Oh alright!"He finally answered.
"Yay!" Susan grinned, and run to Jewel and picks her up, which taken a cat by surprised and carry her to the bathroom. She shut the door and the cat meowed. "When he's outside your can come out." She then turns and run to the cage and open the door for Westley. After she'd did that the rabbit hopped out of his cage.
"Come on Westley lets go!"
"Now only ten minutes!.." Mr. Edmund called as he watches the girl and rabbit bolted out of the door and finished. "Ten minutes until I'm taking you back to school!" When they were gone he
couldn't help to chuckle quietly. "Oh, that child."
Susan and Westley both run out into the woods until they found their own old hollow tree. She got down on her knees excitedly and crawl inside while her companion followed. Without hesitating Susan begin digging with her bare hands until she sees a shiny bottle cap.
"Aha there you are like where we left them," She digs more out and sees more of them."Westley our treasure is still here like it should be."She sees him looking at them and smiled his whiskers in pleased. He even sees his berries and quick grabs one to eat.
"Okay let's dig them back up so no one will steal them from us." She pushes all the dirt in as Westley helped her with his paws. When they finished buried their little treasures they venture out in the woods to explore, not too far from the cabin. And they found many things that they are valuable to them like berries, bottle caps, and if they're lucky empty bottle was their grand prize.
After few minutes of adventuring they both rested by a nearby pond with few treasures they're found near them. Susan looked up at the sky, laying down on her back as Westley was loafing beside her.
The girl sighs softly, "I don't really want to go to school." Westley perks his head up and sees her still staring up at the sky. "I want to play here, have fun with you." Her companion hops one over and rests himself beside her. Susan looks over at him.
"Would that be great? Have no schools for every year? Instead, explore the different forest, even collect many treasures. Just like Tom Sawyer did in the book?" She only watches his nose twitch, and she sighs once more with glum.
"I wish I can hear your words, and you can talk to me back. " Westley blinked to hear her words and tip his head. He sees how sad she looks, he scoots close up to her face and gently nuzzles his nose on her cheek for comfort. Susan gives him a soft smile.
"Well, at least you understand me," Again the rabbit gives her another nuzzle and she giggled quietly.
"Westley your my very best friend, nothing can change that." She runs her finger through his soft fur and massages his back neck with gentleness. He made a little tooth purring, loving how she pets him. Then the girl eyes lit up, made him stop.
"What if we get separated?" His looked at her surprised, how she suddenly thought of this.
"And what if we decided...no, that will never happen."Susan shook her head quickly forgetting what she's going to say. Instead, she looked over at her friend's eyes. See her reflection in his forest green ones.
"Westley let's make a promise, "She said. "If anything happens, if we do get separated, or anything comes our way, lets, not have our friendship break. We will always be friend's forever no matter what. Can you promise that?" Westley glance at her with a reassuring look. Slowly he leans his head on her and pressed tenderly against the child's forehead. He and Susan both close their eyes making a sign they will never break this vow.
I promise, my Susan.
