    Sonic High School Chapter 19

    *Cream went home on Sunday. When you woke up the next morning. She felt nervous but excited. Tails would be waiting for "his crush" at 7 on the beach. But Tails didn't know was that "his crush" was her but Cream was to shy to tell him, afraid of what he might say. It was now 6:36 and Cream and her mother were having dinner and Cream hadn't tough her food.*
    Vanilla- Cream? Are you alright?
    Cream- Huh? Oh fine Mom.
    Vanilla- Are you sure?
    Cream- I think it's just my side acting up again. I'm not really hunger.
    Vanilla- Oh....okay.
    Cream- I think I could just use some sleep.
    Vanilla- Alright Cream. If that's what you want.*Cream went to her bedroom and layed in her bed.*••••
    *Vanilla went to bed at 6:54. Cream knew it would take some time for her mother to fall asleep.*••••
    *At 7:12 Cream got back up and got dress. She dressed in her warmest coat and opened the door has quickly has she can. When she closed the front and started running she looked back. The house was still queit. She continued to run. This was first time she lefted the house wihout her mother knowing or at night. Despit her warm jacket she still felt cold.*••••
    *Cream got to the beach around 7:43. She would of thoght that Tails might of lefted already but when she got there there is was. Sitting on the rocks, watching the ocean. The moonlight gleamed on him.*
    Cream- So cute!*she thought to herself. She was about to walk up to him but held back. She felt the same ice fear she felt when he was walking towards her that day on the road. She was about back up when SNAP! A twig by her foot snapped. Tails turned around surprides*
    Tails- Cream?*jumps off the rocks and walks towards her. Her mind told her to run but fear once again won over her body and stayed put.*What are you doing here?
    Cream- I uhh...
    Tails- Cream? What is it? Didn't you tell her to meet me here?
    Cream- Y...yes.
    Tails- Then where is she? Did something happened?
    Cream- N..n...no.
    Tails- Then what?*A look of horror crossed his face* It's a lie isn't it!?
    Cream- What? No!
    Tails- *Tails didn't listen* I knew it was all a lie! Why did I belive it?!
    Cream- It's me.*she whispers*
    Tails- What?*turns to look at her*
    Cream- It's...it's me okay.*She felt like she was going to faint.*
    Tails- Y...you? Your my crush?
    Cream- Y...yes.*she looked at the ground and closed her eyes waiting to hear Tails laugh "Really! Why will I go out with you?"

    Jaysoar's story Part 23

    "Jaypaw! Jaypaw! Jaypaw!" Bravepaw's high-pitched meows made Jaypaw jumped up from her sleep. "What is it?" She asked, sleepily. "You are on a dawn patrol with me!" Bravepaw told her. 'A dawn patrol?! Now? I need to tell Dovestar about my dream!' Jaypaw thought in frustration but didn't show it by padding outside with Bravepaw after her. Redpool, Mistystream, and Dapplefang gathered around at the edge of the camp, waiting for the two apprentices to join them. Jaypaw then spotted Goldenkit next to Dovestar, his vioce too low for the tortoiseshell apprentice to hear. Dovestar nodded her head as Goldenkit squealed in excitement and ran over to his mother inside the nursery. By the time Jaypaw and Bravepaw reached the patrol, Dapplefang lifted her tail and the patrol raced off too quick for Jaypaw to catch up. Dapplefang then halted. Mistystream snorted. "Well?!" She snarled. "Are we going to continue our patrol?" Dapplefang shook her head. To Jaypaw's surprise, Mistystream didn't say anything else. Dapplefang then scented the air. "Kittypets..." she whispered. Jaypaw opened her mouth and sniff the air. Dapplefang was right, there was a scent that doesn't belong to any clans and also doen't smell like any kind of forest scent. Just a cat scent mixed with twoleg scent. Dapplefang crouched down and silently moved toward a large bush where she can see the kittypet. Redpool did the same thing, so did Jaypaw. When Jaypaw peered out from the bush, she sees a light brown tabby figure bouncing around happily with two smaller figures behind it. Jaypaw's amber eyes gazed on the tabby figure instead on the two small ones and realized it was a she-cat with a blue neck and on the blue neck has a golden shiny twoleg thing with wierd scribbles on it. "What is a kittypet doing on our territory?" Redpool asked Dapplefang. "I don't know but we should do something about it before she steals our prey." The deputy suggested. Redpool nodded in agreement and he, Dapplefang, and Jaypaw slid backwards to sit up tall next to Mistystream and Bravepaw. "We have a kittypet with two kits on our territory." Dapplefang reported. "We need to chase them off." Redpool meowed as Bravepaw jumped up in glee. "We'll show them!" She snarled before racing through the bushes to face the kittypets. "Bravepaw wait!" Dapplefang called to her and raced off behind her. Jaypaw and Redpool followed, with Mistystream behind them. Bravepaw and Dapplefang circled around the kittypet and the kits so they couldn't escape. Jaypaw joined them, along with Redpool and Mistystream. "L-leave us alone!" The kittypet snapped, unsheathing her claws. "We aren't going to hurt you." Dapplefang meowed but the kittypet ignored her. "So it is true; there are cats living in the wild." The kittypet growled as Mistystream gave a low growl. "You heard about us?" She asked. "Acourse I did, mouse-brain!" The kittypet meowed. "The stories were spread to every cat who lives with their housefolk. Now, if you excuse me, I will go and catch a mouse." She padded through the circle, shoving Mistystream out of the way. Dapplefang stood in front of her. "I'm sorry but you can't hunt in this part of our territory." She meowed. "Why can't I? There is enough prey to go around." The kittypet murmured. "You don't understand." Dapplefang meowed. "You cross our border, so you have to leave." The kittypet laughed. "Oh, the border! I forgot! But wait! I already crossed it. So what will you do now?!" The kittypet snarled. END OF 23!
