Half asleep writing about cats isn't easy
Outside it's really breezy
the howling winds hisses loudly
4:07 and I'm pretty drowsy
Its a short one, like most stories in this series will be ^^
___________________________________________________It wasn't unusual for Luna to rise from bed at three a.m. Awkwardly, she rolled off the edge of her bed and on to her feet. She was never tired when she woke up. As soon as her brain started clicking she was ready for the day to begin. The blue glow from the world beyond her window painted her walls a bright midnight color within the empty darkness around her.
A faint yellow light shone from under the crack of her door. Luna was used to people going to bed when she woke up. The fragility of her schedule made it difficult to remain consistent week by week, but one constant was usually her habit of being up in the beginning hours of the morning.
Not a sound rang through the air. Something was up, otherwise her mother would be marching off to bed by now. The thought was stopped by a faint meow noise coming from beyong the door. It wasn't one of her cats, but rather a bunch of cats meowing together. Rythymically, footsteps paced down the hallway at the same pace as the meowing. With the glow disappearing so too did the noises.
That is, until Luna rolled from her bed. As if appearing in front of her mother would cause trouble, Luna slowly walked from her room to the stairs. The meowing, though fainter now, began again. It didn't grow louder with her descent down the stairs, but she got the feeling more cats joined the song.
The tile was cold at the bottom as it usually was at night. Her socks had been forgotten upstairs and replaced with subtle curiousity. Her feet moved to the door and her hands reached for the knob. With a creak, the door swung open along with the one from her mothers room.
"What are you doing?" Luna's mother asked from over the railing.
"Checking on the noise." Luna replied quietly. In response her mothers face twisted before going back into her room and closing the door.
Close to fifty cats stood around a blue vehicle sitting in the drive way. It wasn't a car in the most usual sense, but it certainly shared characteristics with it. The body was painted blue and connected to two axels were wheels. A wide two person seat was carved to the front of the vehicle and covered with padding. There was no cover above the seat, but directly behind it towered a small while sail.
Luna ran toward it, scaring off most of the cats. The car itself contained subtle grooves and detail patterns that could only be seen close up. The fact that it was made of wood as well remained hidden due to the paint. "49," appeared in several places along the vehicle.
A small turtoise patterned cat jumped into the front seat and screeched loudly. She paced around the seat as if waiting for Luna. Luna reached out her hand to pet the cat, and in response it moved teasingly to the second seat.
Luna didn't fall for the bait. Instead she turned around and walk back to the house, calling the cat to follow. "Come on trixi, I'm hungry." With that, the cat jumped down and lead Luna to the door as the rest of the cats dispersed into the dark neighbourhood.
More to come, probably far more interesting than this ^^Taking this one slowly.
