Hello people of earth! This is the last CWWC! *Bawls* I think next time, she does CWWC, I will totally do all of them. Because I have only done three, counting this one. But at the same time, I’m kind of relieved! I don’t have any more contests or anything now! I can post more WOTW and just normal posts! And I’ve got plenty of stories to put up here, I’ll tell you what. For the prompts, I used the shattered girl, the missing, the I can’t help you, the girl in the classroom, the girl with a torch, and the girl hugging a guy. I also put in some of my own prompts. Let’s get on with it!
I remember it clearly. Domino had scratched up my favorite chair, and I scolded her, angrier than I had ever been. she had darted away someplace, I didn’t know where, probably just to have some alone time, I had told myself. But she never came back. We searched everywhere, my family and I, we even put an ad in the local newspaper. I plotted where to look, and I went looking for her every night, in the darkness that I was so afraid of. We asked all our neighbors, but when all they said was, “I can’t help you”, it was like a gong had rung in my ears, reminding me over and over again. There was no hope. Domino would never come back. I had to give up.
I cried for weeks, angry with myself that the last that Domino had known of me was anger. I had what seemed like a thousand ideas of where she had disappeared to. Maybe she got badly injured by the dogs next door. Maybe she had gotten terribly lost. But maybe, she was dead. I knew it in my heart. And when my family hugged me and tried to comfort me, I turned away from them. Because sometimes, Domino was more like a family member to me than any of my real family.
When I was only a toddler, I wanted a cat so badly, that I prayed for one every night that I went to bed. But one fateful day, my mother found a small kitten, abandoned on the road. She was completely white, except for a wide, black strip down her back, and a black chin and tail.
Throughout the years, we had created a strong bond. I loved her, and she loved me. I gave her a treat every day, and she slept on my bed with me. I played string with her and she licked my face. She was sometimes my only friend. I felt lost without her, shattered.
When I finally was forced back to school, I couldn’t focus. Domino still roamed my mind, and I couldn’t get rid of her. When everybody left the classroom, I was still sitting in my desk, not noticing that it was time to leave. I felt a pair of arms rest on my shoulders, probably the teacher’s. “It’s time to go”, she told me smoothly. In a fluster of embarrassment, I packed up my things and practically flew out of the classroom. But as I was walking home, I took the long way, to think of how to forget Domino.
But how could I?
That was the question.
But suddenly, I saw a small shape of a cat, leaning against a fence. I bounded up to get a closer look. And sure enough, it was a familiar, completely white cat, with a black, wid stripe down her back, with a black tail and chin.
Did you like that? I hope you did! GO TEAM HALF BLOOD!
