She Moves Outside [Sep. 23rd, 2005|12:55 pm]
Tony Grist





She leaped the cracks between the paving stones. A worm had up and died a few days before and she skirted its dried up corpse- a crusty brown smear, many times the length of her own body. The back step presented no very great obstacle to one who was used to scaling chair legs and book cases and kitchen units.

She wondered if she might some day take it upon herself to climb a tree.



She slipped under the back gate and she was out in a space where distances were four or five times what she was used to.

No, six times, seven times....

Unreal, storied, fabulous.

She spoke its name under her breath.-slowly- her heart beating faster than a mouses's-

Wuuuurld.

Oh, for heaven's sake! You got me!

I was feeling sorry for the old woman. I thought you'd had a major news story take place in your alley!

Then I thought it might be New Orleans.

Then I thought: Clever! He's talking about rats.

Then I saw your tiny woman.

If she runs into my wooden weatherhouse people, do let me know.

It's a big, dangerous world for small people to be loose in.

I don't know what happens next, but she'll keep an eye out for your weatherhouse folk (could they have crossed the sea?- might they have floated across?)

She'll need all the friends she can get.

Very scary.

That back alley is prowled by all sorts of critters.

She might meet a cat!

Cat

But as long as she's not made of cloth and catnip, that might be OK.... She might even get free transportation!

Re: Cat

That's true,

It's a hell of a long way to the end of the alley.

Re: Cat

Of course, she could also get batted about by said Cat. But let's hope for the best.

Re: Cat

Unless the cat swallowed her she'd probably be all right.

Though she might lose some of her paint.
