Cassipaw was a blue Lupe who loved chasing Chias. She
was constantly looking for some innocent Chia to terrorise. We join her on one
"COME ON, YOU MOVING PUNCHING BAG!!"
A red Chia ran from Cassipaw as she dodged trees'
logs, rocks, and even the occasional wild petpet to get closer to the Chia She
had almost caught up when she came to a river.
"Hmmm… where'd the little shrimp go?" she sniffed
around. Her ears perked up and she growled. "So, she took the river." Cassipaw
might have jumped in, too, if she hadn't noticed the storm clouds. "Well, the
joke's on her."
She turned around and started proudly walking
home, nose in the air. All of a sudden she tripped over a root and fell flat
on her face. She jumped up, checked to make sure nobody had been there to see,
cleared her throat and continued.
She had been walking about ten minutes when she
came to an abrupt stop. "That tree looks familiar…" she muttered. She looked
around. "Oh no… the only way this could get worse is if--" Her voice was drowned
out by thunder.
A soaked blue Lupe with her tail between her
legs ran into the cave.
"Dratdratdratdratdratdrat…well, at least I found
this cave." Cassipaw laid down in a warm corner and waited.
The storm had gone on all night. Cassipaw groggily
got up and yawned. "Is it finally over?" She stretched, and walked to the cave's
entrance. Just as she got there, thunder crashed. "It looks like it'll start
again soon." She stepped back in and took an apple from her pack. "Well, I don't
have a lot of food, and who knows how long I'll be in here, so I can't eat a
lot." She took a bite and put it back in. Cassipaw sat awhile. "I think I have
a Chia plushie in here somewhere…" she pulled out a green ripped Chia plushie,
and chewed on it a bit when out of nowhere--
Lightning hit a huge pine tree which toppled
over with a SLAM on top of the cave.
"That was just a little close!" she said shakily,
and gave a nervous laugh.
Then came a rumble like a million Tonu… a rock
slide came down, covering the entrance and blocking her in.
"I just had to open my big mouth! Well maybe
I could dig my way out! Yeah, right." She stopped to think. "Wait a minute!
What was that? Sounded like…singing!" It was very quiet, but definitely there.
As she followed the sound to the back of the cave, she noticed the dirt wall
in one spot was a little darker. She tried digging through it, slamming it,
clawing it-she even wasted a muffin on it. Cassipaw panted heavily and leaned
lightly against the wall, which immediately caved in.
"Very funny," she grumbled, shaking off dust.
She singing seemed a little clearer, and as she looked up she could see a tunnel.
As she made her way through the tunnel, there
appeared to be a light at the end. The song's lyrics were now easily heard…
"PEEAAAAACEEEEEE and LOOOOVVVVVVVVEEEEEEEE and
HAPPPINEEEEESSSSS AAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLLLLL the TTTTTTTTIIIIIIIIIIIII-IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIMMEEEE!"
The off-key singing made Cassipaw wince. She
made her way out of the tunnel, which ended in a hole in the ground. The sunlight
was blinding after being in the cave for so long.
As she regained her sight, the saw a blue Lupe
wearing a tie-dye shirt with many white smiley-faces, peace symbols, and flowers
covering it, ripped-kneed blue jeans, and a headband. The Lupe had stopped singing
to stare at her. "Like, hey man! I'm, like, Peacepaw!"
Okkaaay, she thought. "Um, I'm Cassipaw."
"Groovy, man. You, like, want to come and meet
my, like, totally awesome pack?" Peacepaw asked.
"Errm…that's okay, I really gotta get home soon.
There's this red Chia, she--"
"Like, awesome. Is she, like, your friend?"
"Wha…?" Cassipaw looked at him strangely. Peacepaw's
eyebrows went up. "You're not, like, one of those narks who chases Chias, like,
"My pack has, like, Lupes and Chias! We're for
peace, man. Chias and Lupes can, like, totally get along, man! Just try it!"
"Ummm… yeah. Could you just point me north?"
"That way." He pointed. "But just, like think
about it, man!"
"Okay then, thanks." Cassipaw looked slightly
crept out, but started off anyway.
The red Chia ran from Cassipaw as she started
to catch up. The Chia stopped, cornered by a fallen tree. She slowly turned
around, blocking her face with her paws, and braced herself.
"Guess I finally caught you," Cassipaw
The Chia backed against the tree.
"I'm Cassipaw! What's your name?"
The Chia removed her paws, confused. "Uhhh… Jackie
