We continue to follow McSniff and his now newly branded assistant William in their adventure to solve the fish problems of Paris.
The Fishy Lighthouse! 22
McSniff looked very anxious as he drove with a high speed to the outskirts of town around the artificial sea. Tall against the wall stood a factory at the end of a rocky road, holding the same rocks of which the wall was made. Big blocks of this pale grey slate, sharp edges still visible from the cement. Taller than expected it rose above McSniff and William who’s head was looking at the top edge.
“What the hell is this place McSniff, what are you trying to keep out or in? Where are we?”
-“We are at the back of the artificial sea, an old quarry used to dig up the slate and now filled with salt water fresh from the ocean miles away from here. Let me show you around. As this is one of the secret facilities here in town very few know of. But this is where their fish comes from.” The cars stops in front of the large iron doors where two cats are clasping paws together and seem to be nervous. They weren’t even attempting to get out of the car yet as one of them started to talk.
“W-Welcome sir, McSniff…” both cats bow their heads down uncomfortably, afraid to look Mc Sniff and William in the eyes. “W-We’re terribly sorry..”
-“Well it is not your fault is it?” McSniff steps out of the car and looks up to the sky. “You know Will, this is what kept us alive. During the fights less fish was coming in. so they designed this large pump house next to the quarry, filling it up with water from the ocean so we could keep fish. It was to save lives of us cats. Not once did we think of our fear for water. We always kept hoping that one day we would overcome that fear or at least have some to do work on the water.” McSniff walks over to the William and slaps him on the back.
=”You are in for a surprise if you think this is stupid, hahaha.” William comes to his senses leaning against the car not even paying attention to the two cats who stare at him.
“Wait a second, is that why I am here. Because I am one of those cats, who do not fear water? That Is the reason the King asked my help?”
-“Hahaha believe it or not Will, but I am coming with you. I can’t have a Hero beat Paris his best Detective and Kings Adviser now can we. And pretty much, yes.”
“Uh h-hello sir, are you… Are you the Hero we heard of, who… who saved Paris? It-it’s an honour s-sir. I.. I’m professor knorkle, Wyatt Knorkle and this is, is my assistant…”
-“Levi Angorra sir, it is a pleasure to meet you.” His voice start to get softer and mumbling ina fast pace “Wow to think I am talking to the hero and McSniff being here to. I should tell my mum, oh my sister to she would not believe me, hehe she does like McSniff. And dad would be so proud.”
“Time to get on moving William, you coming?” the weight of the steel door straining the hinges and making a oud squeaking noise as the four cats enter the facility.
