Ghost in the Storm

 Midge was laying on the end of her owners bed and drifting in and out of sleep as she listened to the thunder booming loud outside. Then came the lightening that would light up the room for a couple of seconds. In a few minutes she heard the rain beating against the window as the wind blew hard through the trees. She look over at her owner who was sound asleep hearing nothing that was going on outside. She rolled over and curled up again to try and sleep. Suddenly a loud boom of thunder and the flash of the lightening. She quickly sat up and stared at the window and she felt her little heart beating fast inside her chest.
Hurry morning time,” thought Midge. “The darkness is scary.”

Iggy, The Little Monster

The three friends left the area where the old cars sat and walked to the zoo. They stopped at the train station to watch the little zoo train arrive and lot of parents with their kids got off the train.
“I want to ride the train again,” sighed Midge. “Don't you want to ride it, Jake?”
“No,” said Jake.
“I don't want to ride it either,” said Booker-T. “That was scary being on the other side of the city and maybe having to walk all the way back over here.”
“But we didn't have to,” said Midge.
“We were lucky,” said Jake. “Lucky that they didn't find us and throw us off the train. I like just staying here and seeing the animals who come to this little zoo.”
“We can go in to this zoo and they don't chase us away,” said Booker-T.

The Cars

“Hey Booker-T!” called Midge as she got to Booker-T's gate to the yard. “Where are you?”
“Hi Midge,” greeted Booker-T as he ran around the house from the back yard. “Are you ready to go to Jake's house?”
“Lets go,” said Midge as they started up the sidewalk.
“Hi you guys,” said Gabby as he swooped down from on top of Booker-T's house.
“Hi Gabby,” said Midge. “What are you doing this morning?”
“I came to see what you are doing,” said Gabby.
“We are going to Jake's house,” said Booker-T. “Maybe we will go see what animals are in the little zoo building today.”
“Did you see that there is a car show over at the field area where the circus was?” asked Gabby.
“A car show?” asked Midge. “What kind of cars?”

The Strange New Pet

Midge sat on the porch staring at something in front of her. Booker-T entered the yard and sat down next to her.
“What are you doing?” asked Booker-T.
“I'm watching Jeremy,” said Midge.
“Who is Jeremy?” asked Booker-T. “I don't see anyone here but you and I.”
“He's right there,” said Midge. “You don't see him?”
“No,” said Booker-T. “Is he talking to you?”
“No,” said Midge. “You don't see him?”
“Are you okay?” asked Booker-T. “I don't see anyone here.”
