Fiction: Hunt

Lillie McFerrin Writes

When Jaime saw her friend Mona’s kitten, she wanted one just like him, she asked Mona, from where did she get the  kitten, but got no answer, after asking  several times,Jaime was irritated, she decided to go home, as she was about to step outside the door, she heard a voice, “Seek and ye shall find!”

At first Jaime was shocked and scared, but thinking her friend was joking, she kept walking.

Her home was not too far from Mona’s, she realized she’s been walking longer than usual, she looked around, nothing looked familiar, where was she and how did she get there, then she remembered she was so angry with Mona she did not look where she was going, “I am lost how will I find my way she thought?”

A man who looked like an ogre stopped and asked if she needed help, she told him the story of her friend and the kitten, the man asked her to follow him, although terrified, she agreed, they walked a long way, the ogre stopped to get a map from his hut to find exactly where Jaime’s house was.

He came out with a piece of paper, they resumed their walk until they came to Jaime’s house, the man bid her goodbye and disappeared, Jaime was happy to reach home but sad because she couldn’t find a kitten like Mona’s, when she entered the house, her mother was waiting for her, “Jaime look she was all smiles, someone left this kitten for you.”
