The Cat and the Chicken
Camilla, Age 11, Armstrong, BC

CHAPTER ONE

“You’re no good,” Cat snickered as he waved his long, furry tail.

“I am so good!” said Chicken. “Bock!”

Cat was so arrogant, he would do backflips off a fence and sneer, “You goofs could only do this in your dreams!” He was also dishonest. If he overheard a secret, he would blab it to all of the other animals. He always tried to be better than everyone else.

Chicken was the exact opposite.  He would share his toys, and, unlike Cat, actually kept secrets. The two were enemies and were always challenging each other to do things. This time they were up for something amazing!        
             
CHAPTER TWO

“I challenge you to do a maze,” sneered Cat with a grin.

“You mean we race through a maze?” Chicken asked. “Bock!”

“Well, duuhhh!” Cat laughed. 

“Okey dokey, catachokey!” Chicken agreed. “Bock!”

“Be at my house at noon, tomorrow,” Cat said sternly as he swiftly turned to march off.

“Bock! Wait, Cat!” Chicken flagged her wing for him to stop.

Cat turned.  “What?”

“Where will you get a maze?” Chicken asked. “Bock!”

“Don’t you worry, I’ve got a trick up my sleeve,” Cat told Chicken as he wandered off.

“You don’t have any sleeves,” Chicken mumbled to himself. “Bock!”
             
CHAPTER THREE

Noon the next day, Chicken was there, at Cat’s house. “What's your trick?” Chicken looked at Cat. “Bock!”

“Every Saturday, my owner holds a backyard fair,” Cat explained.

“So?” Chicken looked puzzled.

“I’m not done,” Cat told him, glaring impatiently.

“Oh, bock!”

“Part of the fair is a maze.  We’ll sneak into the line-up for the maze! There is a golden flute in the middle.  First one to reach the golden flute is declared the winner.”

“OK,” Chicken said, looking unconfused. “Bock!”

In the backyard they waited.  The line-up was long and every one stared and laughed at at the chicken and cat standing in line.   But, finally, their turn came.

“On your mark,” Cat whispered. “Get set.  Go!”
             
CHAPTER FOUR

They dashed off into the maze.  When Chicken waddled out of sight, Cat started to jump over the walls.  Chicken raced on through the maze, convinced he wouldn’t let himself down. After a few minutes, they were both REALLY close to the flute.
             
CHAPTER FIVE

THIS CHAPTER ISN’T REALLY A CHAPTER, BUT IT SORT OF IS BECAUSE IT TELLS YOU SOMETHING, SO I THINK IT’S STILL CONSIDERED A CHAPTER.  OH, WELL, THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS: WE TELL YOU HOW MANY INCHES THEY ARE AWAY FROM THE FLUTE:

Five.
             
CHAPTER SIX

Cat leaped for the golden flute, but leaped too much and jumped - I mean leaped - right over the flute! Chicken chuckled as he waddled up and he grabbed the golden flute with his wing. Victory!  Bock!
             
THE MORAL OF THE STORY CHAPTER

Chickens rule the world!
             
THIS  IS ANOTHER ONE OF THOSE CHAPTERS THAT ISN’T REALLY A CHAPTER, BUT IS A CHAPTER - OH WELL, YOU KNOW THE PROCESS!  IN THIS CHAPTER, WE TELL YOU WHO WON, IN CASE YOU MISSED IT:

Chicken.
