April 16, 2016- I had formulated a plan on how to get Simba alone with the thing he was most afraid of, now I just needed to put my plan into action!
There was a pause from the small, stupid human who was cleaning above us as we were in the basement and I knew it was now or never. I turned and said to Simba, “I just heard the can opener!” This was DIABOLICAL of me! His eyes widened and he waddled up the stairs and I wasn’t far behind him. He raced into the food room and then it happened…the vacuum cleaner awoke from it’s slumber and roared at him.It’s massive teeth whirred across the floor and gobbled up the mess. He was paralyzed with fear and his pupils dilated…there was nowhere to run-he was trapped in a corner.
I blocked the entry way so that he could not escape the monster. I was not afraid but then again there were not a lot of things that frightened me; I often taunted the machine by sitting just out of it’s reach and staring into it’s dead eyes. Simbicile started to panic, he cowered in the corner and he started licking his lips. His head swivelled from side to side as he looked for the exits. What happened next was shocking and completely out of character…Simbicile gathered all of his courage and leapt over the mammoth beast! I could not believe my eyes and was surprised by his new found bravery. I tried to contain him in the space but he bowled me over and I was knocked to the ground by his girth. He sprinted to his hiding place and I darted after him; he was under the spare nest and was shaking from the terror he had just experienced. He was inconsolable-my evil plan had worked and I had exacted my sweet revenge, but If I had known what Simbicile had planned for me next, I never would have done this to him.
