September 27, 2017-The creature tugged and pulled and grunted, and finally was able to undo the zipper to the pink pyjamas.
“There, you’re free!” He said breathlessly as he tossed the hideous nightwear into the nearby bushes.
“Thank you for your assistance. We need to move quickly because if we don’t, Simba and your friend could be lost forever. The more time we take, the higher the odds of never seeing them again are.” The blood pounded in my skull and I knew that the stakes were dire and by the look on the creature’s face…he did too.

“Give me instructions and I’ll do exactly as you say!” The rodent-like creature pleaded.
It was nice to finally have some respect from the people I worked with. I never got this kind of cooperation from Simba!
“See that vent on the outside of the house?” I pointed to what I was talking about.
“Yes, I see it.”
“We need to remove it because I’m betting that once we do, it’ll lead to a pipe or a hole that we can enter the house from.”
We moved quickly and I watched as the creature used his odd-looking hands to pry the vent off. Success! It worked!
I examined the hole for a moment and instantly realized that there was no way that I could fit.
“You’re going to have to go in alone, unlock the door and let me inside,” I said not breaking eye contact with him.
“I don’t think I can do this! Not alone-not without you!”
“You have to, there are lives at stake!” I reminded him.
The creature closed his eyes and nodded, “Ok I’ll do it.”
“Good man!” I said and watched as he disappeared into the hole.
August 21, 2017- “You’re kidding yourself if you think that I’m going to call you that,” Simba said as I ignored him.
I stared out the window for a second and gulped. The ground had to be fifteen feet below us.
“This is way too high to jump!” I said.
“Shhh! We don’t know who is still in the house so keep it down! You’re going to get us caught!” Simba said through gritted teeth.
“I’m going to get us caught? You’re the one who got us into this mess in the first place!” I remind him.
“Because you’ve never got us into trouble right? Is that what you’re saying?”
“Just forget it! Focus on how we’re going to get out of here!” I said. My mind whirled, and my eyes settled on a bunch of blankets at the end of the bed.
“Wait a second…grab me those sheets,” I commanded. Simba didn’t ask any questions as he handed me three of them.
“We’ll tie these together and use them to climb down the side of the house; secure that end to this lamp, it should hold our weight,” I said.
Simba did as I said and quickly began making knots in the sheets, “This should do it!” He said.
“Good, now throw the other end out the window!”
“You go first,”Simba said, and I didn’t hesitate. I climbed out the window and peered over the edge,”This doesn’t completely reach the ground, but at least it’s only a six-foot drop from the end.
“Better than 15!” Simba echoed.
Suddenly, the door burst open, the sound scared me half to death, and I almost jumped out of my skin. Amelia was back, and she had caught us in the midst of our escape.
