Cat’s Castle

By: Tianna Woo

 

The castle stood at the top of the hill, close enough to see that in the high window stood a pretty black she-cat. Now, being a cat myself, I found it hard to believe that another feline lived in this stony hideout. I cautiously crept toward the castle, only metres away from the giant structure. The whiskers on my muzzle twitched and my white pelt shivered with excitement.  Then, I was next to the rocky building. I pawed gingerly at one wall, half expecting something to jump out on me but nothing happened. Taking another look at the high window, I noticed the black she-cat was looking directly at me, her emerald green eyes peering into my blue eyes.

 

“Who goes there?” the black cat mewed. Her voice was meek. My throat swelled up. I didn’t know what to say to her.

 

Shaking my head clear, I faced the pretty black face and meowed, “I’m Moon. My curiousity brought me to this strange place. Mind you telling me where I am?” The she-cat took a single leap from the high window and my blood froze. For a second, I thought she was going to end up injuring herself. But as if she had done it several times before, she landed flawlessly on all fours.  She faced me with a slim smile and flicked the tip of her long, jet black tail.

 

“Curiousity really does kill the cat, doesn’t it?” she circled me, chucking lightly. Her sleek black fur was just barely touching mine, “I’m Midnight. This castle that stands before you used to be my home, accompanied by the humans.”

 

“Really, now?”

 

“Yes, but then the humans that lived here left, leaving me alone with the castle. I’ve been forlorn since, you see.”

 

I felt sorry for her. The forest was my home. I had all the necessities I would ever need there. I gave the she-cat a reassuring lick on the cheek.

 

“I’m sure you’ll be fine. After all, those humans are nothing but trouble,” I mewed, my voice quivering with uncertainty. She shook her head vigorously, her expression purely stunned.

 

“Not true, Moon. The humans treated me with respect! They were nice... Until they forsaken me...” she trailed off. Her eyes were clouded with a pain, a look that told me that she half regretted what she had said. I glanced at her, feeling more pitiful. Then the most brilliant idea hit me. For a moment, I hesitated the thought, thinking about the risky price it could cause me in the near future. I made up my mind a minute later.

 

I intertwined my white tail around Midnight’s and pressed my side with her’s. “I’ll stay with you. Forever, I promise, Midnight. We will thrive in this castle until the day death arrives at our doors.” Midnight gaped at me, not with horror, but with emotions of relief and gratitude. A single clear tear of happiness dropped to the ground from her green eyes. She nuzzled closer to me, purring softly.

 

“Yes, Moon. I’d love that.”
