28. Small Treasures

 

I lay the dress gingerly back on the chair. I picked up Mother's card and carefully took it off the robes. It was light in my paws and I let it down on my desk, displaying it like it was a treasure. Which, to me, it was.

"I'll make you proud, Mother." I murmured. Before the tears could take over, I walked briskly out, back straight, making eye contact with every guard I saw. They all bowed down to me. I tapped our cook, Mary, on the shoulder and drew her aside. She was a plump blue-gray cat with yellowish-brown eyes. She bowed down to me.

"Yes, miss? What may I do for you?" She asked. "Where's my father?" I was all business. I guess Mary could tell, because she directed me down to the dining hall like this was an everyday thing. Which, believe me, it wasn't. I usually kept to myself.

I marched into the dining pavilion to find it full to the brink. I stopped in the doorway, watching cats mill around.

"Ahh. Here's our star." Father announced as he spotted me. Every head turned to look. Then suddenly everyone was congratulating me, crowding around me, and patting me on the back. Aqua flew at me with a huge hug. "Thatwasamazing!Yousavedherandshe'snotevenhurtabitandyoukilledthesnake.Motherwouldbesoproud.Fathersaidheis!SoamI!" She chattered. I laughed and peeled her off. "Whoa, whoa! Aqua! Slow down!" She just grinned and gave me another giant hug.

With Aqua clinging to me, a bunch of cats crowding around me, and deafening chatter everywhere, I barely got a glimpse at Father. I wanted to ask him about the dress. Was it some sort of joke? Mother had loved to play pranks on everyone in the house. What was this?
