This time Zoe heard him, she turned her head and just missed the squirrel looking at her curiously. Zoe turned back to see the squirrel starring at her with an inquisitive look in her eyes. Zoe cocked her head and tried to approach the squirrel but someone picked her up. "There you are!" the voice said.
A head of brown hair jerked up, "Oh sorry, I saw this dog run over here and was going to find her owner." She turned and picked up the squirel, "Well sorry for the missunderstanding, we'll just go." She turned to walk away.
The girl turned back and brushed her hair out of her eyes. "My name is Phoenix Bling." She smiled as she spoke, "And this is Sandy." She guestured to the squirel in her hands. "She's a flying squirel. What's your name?"
Phoenix smiles at each of the pets and then bends down to there level. "How's it going?" she asked in a hushed tone. Minka jumped up and down, "I'm doing gre-grea-great!!" "Thats good to hear." Phoneix reponded and stood back up to face the puzzeled boy.
"Well thats... really cool!" Phoneix bounced with exitement. "At first I thought I was crazy when I found out I could understand Sandy, but when I accepted it, I wondered if anyone else had the same ability."
Phoneix jumped dropping Sandy who glidded down next to the pets. "Really!?" She exlaimed. "Thats so cool!" Sandy sighed as she looked at the exitement her owner was exuding. "Humans are strange," she muttered.
Phoneix, who had finally stopped freaking out, beamed. "Thanks!" she said picking up Sandy and petting her. "My dad found her on one of his expeditions in the Amazon. She was hurt and all alone as a baby, so he brought her home with him and nursed her back to health. Sense her mama was nowhere to be found she couldn't be taught how to survive, therefore we adopted her."
Just then Cat came back to table with the drinks. "Here you go, are you ready to order?" Phoneix nodded, "I will have the cheeseburger with peaches. Zoe will have the flaminyon, Russell will have the insect and plant salad, Vinnie will have the fly soup, Minka will have the banana and berry fruit salad, Penny will have the bamboo, Sunil will have the eggs and carrion, and Pepper will have the omnivore special." She said and nodded towards Van signaling that it was his turn.
Hearing the small squeal Antonio looked down, "Its gonna be okay girl." He brought her to the camp's medical ward, where a bunch of people examined her. A few hours latter a vet walked out and said something to Antonio who nodded and walked to pack his bags.
__Back w/ Phoenix__
Phoenix paced back and forth, "He should be home by now. I hope he didn't decide to stay another week, again." Just then the front door opened and a voice range out, "Guess who's back?" Phoenix's head swiveled and she raced over to Antonio who gave her a giant hug. "Where's you mother?" He asked. Phoenix sighed, "Working late again. She says that inspiration struck."Antonio grinned knowingly, Marcella Bling was a graphic designer who always creating new things. "Well why don't you come help me unpack?" He said with a giant grin. Phoenix nodded and followed her father down the hall to her parents room. Both of them started to unpack until Phoenix pulled out a box with a lot of hole. "Did you have mice?" Phoenix asked. Antonio smiled and encouraged, "open it." Looking weary Phoenix slowly opened the box to see a small, bandaged squirrel sleeping at the bottom. "Wha-what happened?" She asked. Her dad frowned and explained, "I found her all bruised and bleeding. I don't know how she got that way, but she's far to damaged to return to the wild, and she's to young to learn how to survive. Sooo, we get to keep her!" Phoenix's eyes lit up, "Really dad!?" Antonio nodded which resulted in a giant hug. "Now you know that this is going to be a big resposibility and I'll help you take care of her for a while. Are you ready?" Antonio asked. "Yes." Phoneix replied.
"And it wasn't until she wound up sleeping in my shell colection, that I named her, Sandy." Phoneix concluded. "Wow," Vinnie said. "That's some adventure." Pepper nodded, "Yes it is, so how did you get to understand pets?" Her saying this resulted in Phoneix blushing. Sandy raised her paw, "Oh, I can tell this. Long story short, Phoneix was rushing to meet up with some friends in our other city and as she was running up the stairs, she tripped and fell five steps up and then rolled back down. She broke her arm and was in the hospital for a week but she could understand pets."
"It was," Phoneix smiled, "And know I get to listen to this ones complaining every day," she said jokingly, causing Sandy to roll her eyes. Just then Cat came back with all the food, once she was done handing everything out she said, "Enjoy your meal," and left.
(Hey tomorrow is my big lesson)
Me: (gets a call from my teacher. I pick it up) hello? Ah yes mrs. Johnson.....what u mane it....i can? U chose me to do that.....u think I can?! Thanks! (Hangs up) OMG!
Blythe's attention turned to Phoneix. "Hello there." Blythe said. "Greetings." Phoneix replied putting out her hand for a shake. Blythe put her out too and the two girls shook hands. "My name's Phoneix, and this," she said pointing to Sandy, "is Sandy."
Phoenix walked slowly into the brightly colored shop. "Well," she said clasping her hands together, "Thanks for you help but I have things to do?" The last part came out as more of a question than a statement. The brunett laughed sheepishly and she stared at her feet, hoping the duo in front of her wouldnt notice that shop that they stood in. It really was an empty hope as Minka's eyes darted to all of the plushies and short books that lined the shelf.
me: its mind blowing! its amazing! and it gives me a great idea for the poetry games. (the poetry games at my school is coming up in april its like the hunger games but with poetry. i need a costume to match the theme of my poem) im gonna check out the marquies
Just then Phoenix came running up. "You two have got to see this!" She said grabbing Van's arm and leading the two to the pet and human fashion kiosk. "Look what Blythe made us." She said pulling two hats, one that was modeled like Minka and another that was modeled like Sandy, off the shelf.
Just then Jason 1 took the microphone and spoke into it, "Hello Downtown City!" This was met by a lot of chearing. "How are you guys liking Pet Fest?" Cheering again. "I'd like to thank you all for attending Pet Fest and helping out the Endangered Animals Fund! I'd also like to thank Blythe Baxter for making this all posible." Jason gestured to the brown haired girl who waved timidly and blushed. "Now lets get this Pet Fest started!" With that said the Soul Patches picked up their instuments and started to play.
(nah, I kinda want to advance with the Phoenix and Van thing. Hm.. do you want anything else to happen during the pet feast? Or do you have any ideas on somthing to do? If not It'll just be morning next)
I'm so sorry, I didn't see your message until now. Life has been really crazy but I think it's mellowing out. And CONGRATULATIONS!!! I'm so happy for you! That's amazing news! Do you know when the book is being published?
Hey, I'm putting this on my page because I dont really know where else to put it. Anyway to get right to the point, I enjoy contributing to the wiki, one thing I like to do is take screen shot of different characters that dont have very many pictures. If there is any thing that needs photos please let me know and I will do so.
