May 24, 2016-I slept soundly that night and the next morning I awoke with a feeling of purpose. It was a new day and I was going to make good on my promise to be a better man!
Simba was still sleeping soundly in the nest but the humans were gone. He was a loyal soul and all the trauma I had put him through made me twinge with guilt but I would make it up to him somehow. I closed the door as not to disturb him and I ate my vittles that the warden had left me; I quickly bathed myself and washed my face.
I went to the basement and entered the secret tunnel once again; I had much work to do before the humans arrived home. As I had suspected, the humans had not noticed the hole to the outside world at the end of the secret tunnel which was quite fortuitous and I would make good use of it. I made the hole bigger but never stepped foot outside-no, I was quite finished with the great outdoors.
After the opening of the hole was completed I ran back upstairs to print a few flyers off of my computer…I checked on Simba once more and then returned to the tunnel. As I weaved down the corridor I heard chatter coming from the outside. I knew the voice-it was Stinky’s! This was turning out to be a glorious day and I couldn’t wait to surprise the humans when they returned home!
