Molly and Milly arrived at their destination tired and thirsty. Molly showed Milly how to get in the house without being noticed. Milly was so tired she fell asleep on the couch which left Molly to hunt for clues.

Searching for clues

Molly went to the victim's bedroom to search for clues. She went through the nightstand and the dresser drawers. When she got to the last drawer she found something taped under the drawer. Molly pulled it out and discovered a piece of paper with a lot of numbers on it. If Molly was going to guess she would say it was a map of some sort. She tucked it away for future reference. She decided her next logical step was to look through the closet. She was knee deep in clothes when she heard a strange noise.

Unwelcome visitors

Molly dug herself out of the closet and came face to face with a very big guy. She tried not to make eye contact with him because he didn't seem happy. The guy bent down to pick her up and she went around him and took off like a bat out of hell. She knew she could get out of the house but she just couldn't leave Milly. By this time Milly was awake and knew they were in trouble. There was a guy staring at her. Milly did what any kitten would do. She hissed at him. A big ferocious hiss. She wanted to make sure he knew she was someone to be reckoned with. Then he did the unspeakable and called the police. He thought she had rabies.

The ride in the cruiser

A police officer came to the house to pick up Molly and Milly. Molly heard him say he was taking them to the pound. This was not good. When Dad found out where they were and what they were doing there was going to be trouble. He'd be really mad because they didn't include him in their investigation. Molly couldn't think about that right now. She had to figure out how they were going to get out of trouble.

Booking Molly and Milly

The lady at the pound was very nice. She sat behind a big, old desk. There were treats in her drawer and she was nice enough to share some with Molly and Milly. Molly didn't like the officer. He seemed to have a chip on his shoulder, maybe he was having a bad day. If he thought his day was bad he should consider how bad Molly and Milly's day was going. Milly almost had heat stroke and now they were both in lockup.

The ride home

Milly was laying in her cell when she heard someone call her name. When she looked up it was the nice lady from the front desk. She told Milly she was going home. When Milly reached the front desk Dad was standing there with a scowl on his face. Molly was already at the desk and she didn't look happy. It was going to be a long ride home. As far as Milly was concerned they could ship her home to grandma's house. This vacation was a nightmare. On the way home they passed by the hotdog stand. Molly was so hungry that she wished they could stop for just one hotdog. She'd even share it with Milly. Dad drove right by the stand without speaking. Molly could tell they were definitely in trouble. There had been a fine and Molly didn't know how she was going to pay Dad back. Milly planned on calling grandma and asking her to send a plane ticket out of here.

Interesting story that made me read every word of it. If you do not mind, I'll give another rule mormally followed in a novel. A character's inner thoughts or interior monologue as it is called, is put in italics. Second, you had one too many in this piece. This is called author's intervention. You should employ what is known as "show and not tell" technicque. For example, when they passed the hot dog stand- Molly looked at it. Her mouth watered and pangs of hunger stirred within. Milli pawed her knee and pointed towards the stand. Dad, however, continued driving staring at the empty road ahead.

GV Rama Rao, thank you so much for your comment. When I write Molly and Milly's story I'm writing from a cat and dog's view which will probably break rules along the way. I'm sure I do but I'm trying to show that they are animals that talk if that makes sense. They are quite a team.

I like how gallant Milly is. She might be small, but she is someone to be reckoned with. Ha! I feel bad that Molly and Milly are in trouble, but I know they'll be fine. Thank you, Nancy, for sharing another great part to this summer thriller.

What an unexpected twist but that is part and parcel of the creative process that none can avoid, including other species!

We cannot jump out of our skin - comes to mind! Molly and Milly had good intentions but they get cold-shouldered by all except, of course, by dear Grandma who is ever forgiving. They are sure to get a big hug from her!

Thanks Nancy - I feel Dad should take it easy on them as his life was in their hands earlier! siva
