"Aaah... aaah... aaah... CHOO!" WishyxWashy the Cloud Kacheek sneezed and whimpered.
She reached for another tissue from the box beside her bed. Feeling another
sneeze coming, she hastily blew her nose.
Just then, her owner came in holding a tray. There was some cold chicken and
herbal soup on it; not exactly what Wishy had in mind. She would much rather
have a Cheese Sandwich or a hot-dog, a Vanilla Milkshake, and to top it all
off, some delicious Peach Ice Cream. Wishy couldn't figure out how having cold
chicken and herbal soup could help cure her Sneezles.
Katherine, her owner, spoon-fed her some of the hot herbal soup which actually
wasn't that bad. Wishy was just about to swallow her first spoonful when suddenly
she sneezed, spraying spit and herbal soup all over her bed and her owner. The
metal tray with the cold chicken (Katherine had been holding the bowl of soup)
clattered nosily to the floor.
"Oh, I'm so sorry, Kath..." apologised Wishy, trying to clean the bedspread
with another tissue. Her owner just smiled, mopping herself off with her pocket
hanky. "Looks like we have to throw this chicken away." She said, somewhat cheerfully.
"You finish this herbal soup, Wishy. I'll cook you up some Asparagus Pie." With
that, Katherine took the tray and the chicken out of the room.
Once her owner was out of sight, Wishy clambered out of bed and walked over
to the window. It was snowing outside and she could see some of her friends
making snow angels in the snow. Jinkles, a cloud Gelert, was busy making a snow
Blumaroo, and her neighbour, Delincca, was helping him. How come they got to
have fun, and she had to mope around at home eating Asparagus Pie and Herbal
Soup? It didn't make any sense to her at all.
Wishy sat down on the floor and started playing with her Usukis and her plushies.
Then, she saw a book on the floor right beside her red Kacheek plushie and her
white Blumaroo plushie. Strange, she thought. Katherine hasn't bought
me any books lately.
She picked up the book. It was entitled 101 Annoying Things To Do.
That sounds fascinating, decided Wishy. She opened the purply-yellowy book cover
and looked at the contents page. "Annoying things to do in the Battledome" it
read. Flipping to page fifty six, Wishy began reading the page.
"When your opponent taunts you, don't make your move until five minutes later.
When he asks you why you did that, just say casually, 'Oh, my owner always spins
the wheel of excitement at this time.'" She flipped randomly through the book
until she came to the page, "What To Do With Yucky Food". Halfway down the page
a suggestion caught her eye.
"Splosh the food onto a piece of paper and pin it onto the wall. If your owner
asks you why you did that, just say 'I call it, Under My Intestines'."
Guffawing loudly, Wishy clambered back into her beauty bed holding the book
and her soft toy, Minnie the red Kacheek plushie.
"My, you sound much better," Katherine remarked, coming into the room holding
a plate of Asparagus pie... yuck! Wishy simply nodded, taking the pie, knowing
exactly what she would do with it later.
