"Please Don't Eat Me!"
If anyone (or anything) was watching The CAT at that moment, they would have seen him starting to become blurry and then vanish into thin air. Even The CAT didn't know how he did it, but he wasn't going to complain. It saved him a lot of walking.
As he continued listening to his stomach, Hungry wondered why he was so focused on the pillow. It wasn't like he was that attached to it. "Maybe it is because the Dowager had been the one to give it to me," he thought as he remembered when she first gave it to him to sit on. Yes, it was comfortable to sit on, but he realized it was more than that. He 'needed' the pillow and deep down he didn't think that was the real reason for this powerful pull to find it.
As Hungry tried to distract himself of thoughts about the missing pillow by remembering his favorite foods from the last time he visited the bakery, The CAT appeared suddenly on the trial in front of him. They both stumbled to a stop and just stared at each other - surprised when only an instance before the trail was empty.
Getting some of his confidence back, this time it did not take as long for The CAT to answer. "Hungry is it? Well, so am I."
The Dragon smiled. "Your name is Hungry too?" It took a bit for The CAT to get Hungry to understand that his name was just 'The CAT', but by the time he did, The CAT realized that this Dragon was very literal. Deciding this might be fun after all now that he wasn't going to be eaten, The CAT started to ask the young Dragon about himself and was soon telling the Dragon tails (oops - tales) about being a cat.
It wasn't very long before the Dragon and The CAT were talking like old friends until Hungry's stomach started to rumble again. The CAT had also been wondering how he was going to get the Dragon to the Wishing Well as all this thinking was certainly working up his appetite too.
"A Sugar Plum cookie, with tea and my favorite pillow, wouldn't that be lovely?" groaned Hungry. Remembering the pillow that Sprigg'n had been carrying gave The CAT an idea.
"If I might know where your pillow is," The CAT asked Hungry, "would you like to go get it? Maybe pick up a sweet along the way to eat too as long as it isn't me?"
"That would be terrific!" smiled the Dragon. "Let's get started. Lead the way!" Soon they were strolling down the trail with Hungry following The CAT.
"I wish we didn't have to walk everywhere," soon grumbled Hungry.
"Why don't you fly... you have wings," answered The CAT. Stumbling to a halt, Hungry just stood and stared at The CAT muttering something that The CAT almost did not hear. "Why didn't I think of that..."
"We'll be there soon enough," The CAT smiled at Hungry, thinking about how he had cleverly maneuvered the Dragon to where he wanted him to be - on his way to The Wishing Well.
