The Fishy Lighthouse! Part 36
It did not last all that long as a cat was coming out of the secret doorway. His head was lowered and in a mumbling state as he continued to walk. “No… no… this can’t be… what to do?’ His little paw is rubbing across his face, his body leaning against the door to close it.
The kittens and the ladies all sit quietly and astonished he has not seen them stand right in front of him. To scared to move but with hair raised they stand still. Copper has stopped his growl and stands relaxed in an upright position and wagging his little tail. His tongue fell to the side out of his mouth. His entire demeanor shows he is waiting for something.
When the cat almost reaches the kittens copper could not hold back anymore and jumped. Pushing the cat over and lay his paws on the poor cats chest. Short high pitched barks between lots of licks in the face, he wags his tail vigorously.
“Copper, down” lady Chambelle tries to calm copper down. She noticed he did not want to harm but still she can’t let the pup crush this cat. “Copper…”
All the kittens shout and scream thinking their playmate was attacking a cat. Each and everyone of the little jumped on to Copper, in an attempt to stop him as well.
-“Ah here your are you little rascal, we’ve been looking for you Duncan… Your mother is worried sick…”
Lady Chambelle froze. She recognized that voice. She has been listening to it for quite some time now.
-“Come on now Duncan… take it easy… ”
“Tommy…? You…?” Her paws points a single toe to the man crawling from underneath Copper.
Richard dusts off his clothes as Copper’s attention is drawn back to the playful kittens. With a smile on his face he looks at his wife and the maids. “Hello Cynthia dear, I see you found a secret. Cooky and Kitty fancy seeing you here as well. Who would have thought you would have Duncan in your care.”
“Who is Duncan? Or do you mean Copper?”
-“The little pup here is called Duncan. It is the name his mother gave him. And he had run off, the little rascal is playful as ever. How did you find this place”
“Tommy what do you mean what is going on here?” Her eyes water up as she tries to explain how she got here. The ideas spawned from when William left, her desire to do more and the love of the stories her Tommy told her. Each of them awakened her to took her to this day. “I am sorry I did not tell you, I thought it was best not to tell anyone we had a puppy and even wanted to rescue more or have more. Though Tommy no one of your journals was about what you are doing here?”
Richard nods his head in approval and smile at the stories thrown in his lap by the kittens and his wife.” Cynthia, how about I let all of you in on a secret and show you. But it means you all have to be very quiet about this. Oooh I almost forgot… Mc Sniff and William are doing great, last news is they are heading for the Fishy Lighthouse.”
Timmy rises to his feet “What is a fishy lighthouse, never heard of that kind of fish…”
