Freckles Returns to the Scene


I waited long after the portal opened again. I hadn’t seen who’d made the opening, and I worried that the high-pitched one was trying to trick me. My curiosity got the better of me, however, and I soon succumbed to the call of the Other World.

Fresh treats awaited me -- soft pointy leaves with yellow flowers. Big Guy must have been here! He’s the one who always brings me my favorite treat. Suddenly, I hungered for the special bitter-sweet flavors and snatched a leaf, finishing it in a few short chews.

After I’d eaten my fill, I turned to survey the scene of the crime. My body shook with surprise at what I saw.

No fair, Freckles, to leave us in suspense like this.
