July 10, 2017-My head pounded in my ears and my mouth went dry. Amelia was coming for us and there was nowhere for us to escape her clutches.
Simba’s head whipped from side to side as he tried to find a path of least resistance. Amelia stood in front of us and reached down just as Simba shouted,”Follow me!”
I did as he commanded. We ran as fast as our legs would carry us and we managed to slide through Amelia’s legs.
“Naughty kitties!” She screamed and the sound of her laughing maniacally behind us sent shivers up my spine.
“She’s gaining on us!” I shouted to Simba.
“Up here!” He yelled and we raced up the staircase to the upper level of the house.
I heard Amelia’s footsteps stomp up the stairs after us. She was hot on our trail and it would only be a matter of time before she caught us for good.
“This way!” I said and pointed to a dark room Simba in after me and we heard the door slam as we huddled under the bed and braced for the worst.
“Silly cats! You come out from under there!” Amelia was crouching on the floor in front of us. My lungs burned and my legs ached and I wanted to go back to the prison, I wanted to be anywhere but here!
Amelia reached for me first and managed to scoop me up from my hiding place.
We had made a grave mistake. We should have never entered her room.
