"Goodbye! Take good care of LD!"
Emilee pressed her ear up to the door. "We will!
She is going to have so much fun!"
Emilee became very curious. She whispered, "Who
Suddenly a door flew open. A little Doglefox
rushed into the room.
"There is a Doglefox in my room?"
"Yip, yip, ruff!"
"Ahhhh, the Doglefox is going to get me!"
Emilee ran as fast as she could upstairs. She
panted. For a pink Angelpuss, she was fast. When her breathing got back to normal,
she started to think up a plan in the dark, but open wardrobe that she was hiding
in. She had to get downstairs somehow. Maybe Sugar, a Dua, could help. Emilee
tiptoed to the stairs. Emilee ran downstairs at the speed of light. She looked
around. The coast was clear. She ran to the back door. She opened it up a tiny
"What's wrong, Emilee?"
"Have you noticed that there is a Doglefox in
my house and it is going to get me?" Emilee said in one breath.
Sugar smiled. "If you thought that I did not
notice it, you must be deaf. Secondly, that Doglefox is barely bigger than you
are. Also, why are you talking to me, Emilee?"
Emilee suddenly remembered her promise that she
would never be friends with that filthy outdoor Dua. She hissed.
"Let me guess. You need help with a plan. What
is your plan?"
Emilee looked embarrassed. "I was hoping you
would have a plan."
"You were going to ask me to help you think up
Emilee looked extremely embarrassed now. "No,
I was not. You are a filthy Dua. Anyways, is LD going to stay here forever?"
Sugar sighed. She was such a good sister to Emilee,
and this was all she got. "Maybe she will. Fine, be that way. However, I do
have a plan."
Emilee's eyes got big. Sugar was a good sister
at times. "What is your plan?"
"Well, we could get LD to go somewhere else."
"Why do you care?"
It was Sugar's turn to look embarrassed. She
played with her Jeweled Collar as she spoke. "To tell you the truth, that Doglefox
makes me so jealous. She is a princess. She gets to go indoors and outdoors
sometimes! She gets to sleep inside of the house. It is not fair!" Sugar was
an outdoor Dua. She lived in a bamboo room. Her owner's owner would not let
her go in the main house. Her owner thought that she would make a mess.
"Look at little Sugar! She is jealous!"
Sugar growled. "Don't forget that I am five times
your size and that I am a 'mean, scary, Dua!'"
Emilee ran. Sugar's growling had scared her.
She ran upstairs. She got out a pencil and paper. She took everything into the
wardrobe. She had heard LD running. Since she could see in the dark, she started
to draw a plan. After thirty minutes, she had a plan.
"Sugar, can you help me with this?"
Sugar walked over. "Sure; explain it."
Emilee sat down on the rug. "Okay. First, you
pull this rope. That makes a balloon drop. It is full of water. Doglefoxes do
not like water. Then, after the balloon drops, a loud barking noise starts up.
You are going to bark as loud as you can. That will scare her. Sugar, this is
going to be perfect. She will be gone tomorrow for sure!"
"I do not know about this… we could get in trouble…
then we would be the ones outside of this house…"
"Sugar, you are an outdoor Dua already."
"Do not make me growl again."
Emilee and Sugar set up the trap. The placed
it right over LD's bed. She was going to be in for a surprise.
"We will complete the plan tomorrow." Emilee
was tired; she usually slept all day.
Sugar smiled. "That version sounds much better.
Emilee woke up when the sun rose. She stretched
and walked downstairs.
"When I yell, 'now' you are to bark."
Emilee tiptoed into the wardrobe. She opened
it up a tiny bit. She sat down. She looked out of the wardrobe. She had the
rope in her paws. When LD walked near the trap, she pulled on the rope.
The invention was working wonderfully. She commanded
Sugar to bark. The balloon rolled out… and… IT WAS FULL OF UMMAGINE JUICE! The
balloon hit the floor. Pop! The carpet was now a shade of purple. In addition,
Sugar was barking at the top of her lungs. That was great. They would blame
Emilee. Her owner's owner would get so mad. At that moment, her owner walked
"Emilee, WHAT DID YOU DO?"
Emilee was in trouble now.
Emilee had to sleep outside that night. She
had to sleep in the backyard.
"Do not say 'I told you so!'"
"I warned you!"
"I said not to say that!"
"No you did not!"
Sugar and Emilee fought all night. Emilee got
the most sleep. She slept for 15 seconds. Then Sugar started arguing about something
else. Emilee was miserable. Sugar would not even let her come in her room. Emilee
had to sleep in Sugar's garden, on the grass, under a tree. Sugar's garden was
the only one with a tree.
In the morning, Emilee was furious at LD. She
had to get her to go away. Emilee snuck back into the house. She got more paper
and pencils. She walked up to Sugar's room and knocked on the door.
Emilee walked into Sugar's room and instantly
began talking. "We need to think up a new plan!"
"Did you see what happened last time?"
"Duh. I was the victim."
"You really want to try again?"
"Fine, I will help."
"Little Sugar is…"
"I said I would help!"
"Okay, let's think up a plan."
By noon the next day, the next plan was ready.
Emilee had spent all of the previous day planning. She was confident that this
plan would work. She set up the trap at seven in the morning. She was next to
the wardrobe. She had the rope in her hands. When LD turned around the corner,
Emilee pulled on the rope. A blanket fell from the sky. It was a Baby Security
Blanket. Baby Security Blankets are special because they hold on to whatever
they fall on. The plan was to get the blanket to catch LD. It did not work.
The blanket fell down… and… the blanket was on their owner's favorite trophy!
Emilee tried to pull it off, but she heard a noise. Crack! There was a crack
in the trophy! When Emilee ran out of the room, her owner ran in. That night
Emilee was back in the garden.
"It just is not fair! Why do you not get into
"I am already outside. If that is her way of
punishing us, then I am safe."
"We need a new plan."
"I have one last plan."
"Let's do it!"
This final plan was going to be perfect! Every
afternoon at 12:30, LD would bark at the front door. Emilee and Sugar were going
to place Magic Goop above the door. When she got to the right place, she would
bump into a string. The string would then send the Magic Goop flying towards
LD. That would make her beg to go home. They set up the trap. At 12:25, they
sat near the door just to watch.
At 12:30, LD walked up to the door and barked.
She still was a few feet away from the string. To Sugar and Emilee's surprise,
the door flew open. Standing there was their owner and another familiar pet.
The Magic Goop fell on them as they walked in.
"Well, that was unsuspected, but now I am healed!"
The pet seemed to be pleased.
Sugar and Emilee ran for their lives. They were
in big trouble now. Not only did they stain the carpet, but they also got goop
all over a guest's shirt.
"Knock, knock." Sugar and Emilee were now in
Sugar's room. When they heard the knocking, they both looked at each other.
"Should we open the door?"
"We will get into more trouble if we do not."
They opened the door. Standing there was LD.
"Bye. I am leaving now. That was my owner that you spilled goop on."
Emilee ran to the other side of the room. "Go
LD smiled. "Emilee, I have never been out to
get you. You always ran away from me."
"How did you know that I said that you were out
to get me?"
"For one thing, you yelled it when I first came.
Also, I heard you talking to Sugar."
"How did you avoid our traps?" Emilee was feeling
a lot braver.
"I overheard all of the plans."
"So you were spying on us?" Sugar was surprised.
"So… you heard what I said?"
"Yes, Sugar. I was not trying to make you jealous.
I was just trying to survive with you attacking me all of the time. When your
owners went on vacation, Sugar, I let you come in the house. I did not get jealous
when you came in. I just was friendly and kind."
Sugar was looking embarrassed again. "I forgot
about that. Sorry."
"When I was in the house, I just used my special
face." LD put on this I-am-starving-and-I-need-table-scraps-now face.
They all laughed.
"Well, I will see you soon."
LD walked out of the backyard.
That night, both pets were sitting in Sugar's
room. The owner punished Emilee again. Sugar and Emilee got into their corners
of the room. They said goodnight, and both of them fell asleep. When Sugar woke
up at 5:00 AM, she smiled. Then she remembered that she woke up because of a
noise. Sugar heard the noise again. She sat up and looked at Emilee across the
"I know everything is back to normal when you
chase your tail."
Sugar meant it. If you had looked over, you
would have seen an Angelpuss chasing her tail, at light speed, at five in the
