    The golden cat: chapter one

    I looked out my window. Rain poured down it like a water fall. I heard my mom callin my name. "Noala! Its dinner!" I looked at the barn outside. Our horse,Ricky, was whinnying. I was in my room. My bed was neat. Everything was neat in my room. I ran downstairs to the kitchen. My mom was cooking noodles. My younger sister, Poppy, played with her hair. I was twelve years old. My sister was Eleven. Our cat, Rainflower, walked in. Her long black hair sleek. I named her Rainflower because of a book series i ooved. It is called WARRIORS. Its about theese four cat clans living in a forest. There is Thunderclan, Riverclan, Shaadowclan, and Windclan. Thunderclan lives in a forest. So does Shadowclan. They live in seperate parts of the forest. "Sit down, Noala and stop staring at Rainflower!" My mother interupted my thoughts. I sat down at our wooden table. "Get napkins and the bowls, Poppy",Mom ordered. Poppy got up and went to the cupboards. The doors of the cupboards were peeling. It looked like a wounded piano to me. "Noala, actualy can you get the forks and bread?" Mom asked. I slowly got up and walked to the drawers. I snatched some forks out and laid them on the table. "Get bread now, Noala", Mom said while putting the noodles into the white bowls Poppy had picked out. I nodded and walked over to the fridgerator and took out the bread. "Who put the bread in the fridgerator?" Mom asked. "It's suspossed ro go in the cupboard!" Poppy turned and looked at me with her hazel eyes. I sighed. "Sorry!" Mom finnished pouring pasta into the white bowls. I sat down. Poppy twirled her blond hair with her fingers. She wore a blue and white striped shirt with jeans with fairies on them. I wore a white t-shirt with an elephent on it. I wore my jeans with orange stars on it for pants. I had pulled my dirty blond hair into a high pony tail. My mom sat down. I picked up my fork and poked my pasta. Mom glared at me. I sighed and twirled my pasta in my bowl. I then stuck it into my mouth. My mom makes the best pasta ever. Always making it perfect. Our dog, Bobby, raced down the stairs. He was a boston terrior. He squirmed under the table waiting for food. Rainflower ran through the cat flap at the door leading outside. My family is animal lovers. We have three animals in all. We have one horse, one dog, and one cat. "Noala, find Rainflower and bring her back",Mom asked me quietly. "Sure!"*** I walked in the pouring rain. My green raincoat wasnt keeping the rain from soaking through. I was drenched. My sneakers were wet from puddles. I ran blindly through the rain. I heard a meow and saw a beautiful shaggy golden cat leap out of a bush. It had huge amber eyes. 'It must be wild',I thought. My mom always tells me to stay away from feral cats because they might have rabies. The golden cat didnt even hiss at me. Crouched down. It walked over to me. I stoked its wet fur. The poor cat was shivering. It purred happily as I petted its side. I picked it up. The cat didn't growl. I smiled. I brought it to my garage and put the cat in Bobby's dog house. I closed the door. I walked back into the rain. It was easing now. Something rubbed my legs. I looked down to see a whole group of cats clustered around our drive way. I mean it was a whole colony of cats. I saw a sleek black pelt amoung them. "Rainflower!" I ran over to Rainflower and picked her up. Then I ran inside. ***"Mom, there is a buch of cats outside in our driveway!" "What!" Mom shrieked.

    Re to I want to do gymnastics

    I really advise you to really tell your mom that u want to do gymnastics. My sister has been waiting practicly her whole life just to get gymnastics lessons. If you do not tell your mom you could never fullfil your dream of becoming a world class gymnast. And i do hope that when you tell your mom you give it your best effort!!! Good luck :-)

    Love,
    Chameleon age:15
