It is Thursday again and we all know what that means. A new part of McSniff. I am so enjoying the work on this character and his story. Never did I ever think to be writing a fantasy. Never the less. Enjoy the next instalment of McSniff and William.
The Fishy Lighthouse! Part 4.
William is somewhat shocked to hear that and raises his voice a little “Hey McSniff, you been a hero to?”
Tommy take his turn and has waterfall of stories come from his moving mouth his arms swinging in large movements. It is McSniff who grabs him by his shoulder. Just that second is enough for him to turn around and look up to his hero and catch his breath.
“Ha ha take a breather Tommy. Look William I practically started this orphanage and try to give these kittens a chance. But we have more urgent matters and we need to go. So guys…”
Those words did not please the mob of playing tugging and screaming children. ‘He promised, five minutes, that is not fair, come on’ Is shouted by the many mouths.
In the back are Tiffany and Francis watching with a happy grin on their faces. Till Francis walks in to the circle the kittens has formed. Her hiss is a loud one but has the children stop their chanting. A flick of as witch would be the right term to use as immediately after she is smiling that same happy grin again.
“Now, now children, I know promises are made and I am pretty sure these two gentleman will return one day to keep up their end of the bargain.” Everyone stands in silence hearing her words being directed to the kittens. Though her smile is real, her posture so frail and yet having such authority. The attention is turned to the two men in the midst. “McSniff and William please forgive these little rascals we do not get out very often, let alone meet their Heroes” She bows her head down apologizing for those playful and happy orphans.
William is struck by her words and swallows a lump from his throat. “it is okay Francis, I understand no need to apologize. I be happy to come back one day and spend the day answering questions.”
The last word was not spoken yet and the kittens were running after each others tail in a circle chanting in unison their Hero is coming.
“Sorry to interrupt, but we need to get going William, You have been requested to attend tea at the palace with the King.” With his paw waving high McSniff started walking back to the car
-“Wait what the King, me. Why?” The kids are chuckling seeing William all confused and unsure what to do next. “Come on.. in these clothes? You got to be kidding me McSniff”
The chuckles turn into laughter and even the two ladies hold a paw in front of their faces trying to hide the fun they were having.
“Wait up, what do you mean…I be back guys… McSniff a little more information would be nice.”
-“Get in William, we need to get going.” A finger points at the sun, standing almost at his highest point.
The doors are shut a with a honk the car starts moving, and driving the two off. With chuckles and laughs the group stand waving farewell. Knowing one day they will come back.
Hope you enjoyed the read. Feel free to leave a thought or comment.
