After I enlisted at the fire department, I headed back home to check on the kitties. I always worry about them when I’m away.
Of course, I shouldn’t worry. My kitties are very capable of taking care of themselves. Cheshire looks out for little Dinah. He’s always playing with her.
She worships the ground he walks on.
Then I looked up and saw a guy jogging past the house. It’s time to meet the neighbors! “Hello! Wait up!” I cried.
“Huh?” the guy skidded to a stop.
“Hi! I’m Allison Wonderland, and I’m your new neighbor! I’m sure we’ll be great friends!”
“Hello,” he grunted. “I’m Gladsten Farmwell.” His handshake was all sweaty, but I guess that’s what’s supposed to happen when you jog. I wouldn’t know.
“Did you catch any fish?” I asked.
“Fish?” he asked. “I wasn’t going fishing. I was just taking a jog.”
“Oh, I know!” I said. “I meant, like, if you’d caught any fish ever.”
“Uh, yeah. Actually I like to fish. I know where all the good spots are. I could take you sometime.”
“That’s OK,” I said. “I don’t actually like to fish.”
“Riiight. Hot day we’re having.”
“You’re right! It sure is hot!”
What a boring guy.
He wasn’t even supernatural or anything, not the littlest bit. I came to Moonlight Falls to meet supernatural people!
I ditched the loser and headed out see more of the town.
Now this is more like it!
Her name is Marigold Maldano, and she’s a fairy!
She said she was just heading to the library to catch up on her reading, so I followed her inside.
The library appears to be a supernatural hotspot in Moonlight Falls. Who would have thought it?
Hetal Anjali here is a witch!
She totally did NOT give me the eye.
I apologized for my job. I mean, even if I love fire more than anything else except my kitties, I’d never set anything on fire intentionally. Well, at least hardly ever. Certainly not the library.
She was delighted to meet me and said I should come over to taste some potions.
And then there was Param Sing, who’s a werewolf!
I asked him if he got hairy like Bigfoot.
He changed the subject really quickly to something about butterflies.
In no time at all, it was time for me to get home to get some sleep. Tomorrow is my big first day of work, and I don’t want to be tired!
I slept well and dreamed of my kitties.
The kitties slept well too.
But nobody seems to want to sleep in the nice, comfy kitty bed by me.
I didn’t realize until later than neither cat seems to be able to climb the spiral staircase on their own, which makes this house a bit less fun. Sadly, Allison may be moving soon.
I don’t have any particular attachment to Allison’s sexual orientation, so I figure males and females are both game to be mates. However, upon consideration, I think her mate will have to be a supernatural. She is, after all, a Supernatural Enthusiast. So I’m going to present potential mates in the next couple of chapters. Please let me know which faces you like! I am considering putting up an advisory mate poll :).
