I had the idea for this for a while so here I am, all psyched over a new story.
Tick tock. Tick tock. Tick tock. I have no idea how many hours I sat there, looking at the clock. Looking for something. The continual ticking of the clock embedded itself in my mind, tick-tocking constantly. People went by. Lynne. Kamila. Jowd. Cabanela. Missile. Alma. Even Yomiel. So many people. Sometimes they called for me.
"Sissel? What are you DOING, sitting there all day?"
"Come on, Sissy!"
"Ah, cats... nothiiiiiing like them, baby."
The ticking speeded up.
Tick tock, tick tock. Ticktockticktockticktocktick tock...
CUCKOO! CUCKOO! CUCKOO! CUCKOO! CUCKOO! CUCK-
"Shut it!" I snapped, waking up. So it had been only a dream. But somehow, it didn't feel right. I was looking for something. But what? I was interrupted from my thoughts by an angry Jowd charging through the bedroom door and nearly tearing the cuckoo clock right off the wall.
"Oops. Sorry about that, Sissel. Just go back to sleep," he said sheepishly, and left. There was definetly something not right. Just call it "cat's instinct". I was sure this day was different somehow. And not in a good way.
I was right on the mark, as it turned out.
You've all got a surprise in the next chapter! Well, maybe, NOT such of a surprise.
Anyway, I know this chapter sucked, but please R&R! Or at least read the next chapter.
