Clarissa Lea Cat Finds A Home
(Caution: This story may be sad)
One day at 68 Wonston Street in the little town by Tideon End Branch Line, Clarissa Lea Cat is living as a roommate to Heily R Hyena. Since Clarissa got older, she was told by her parents to live with a roommate to make her own living; so she went to Heily’s home at 68 Wonston Street after paying an affordable train ticket to Wonston Station by a branch line train. Heily, on the other hand is rude, arrogant, selfish, self-centred and mean hyena. Although she is nice enough to let Clarissa stay, or so Clarissa thinks she is, she have a bad attitude and temper with Clarissa because her shyness is annoying her but Clarissa sometimes can’t help it. She often play nasty tricks on Clarissa and blames it on Clarissa than herself. One day, Heily is feeling extremely cross, the garden is covered with weeds and overgrown grass. “Hey you shy kitten!” bellows Heily, “Mow the grass on the garden right now!” “But...the tenant orders said that you’re doing it,” says Clarissa and she is right, the tenant wrote the orders of what chores that Heily and Clarissa have to do as Heily is doing the mowing today. But Heily is having none of it, “Don’t give me that excuse! Do. It. Now!” Heily says nastily. Clarissa does what Heily tells her but little does she know is that Heily is plotting a nasty trick on her so that Clarissa gets the blame instead on herself.
Clarissa mows to and fro and back and forth until the garden is clear, as she goes back inside to finish cleaning the windows, she suddenly slips on a banana peel and crashes into an umbrella rack. “It’s all your fault, clear up this mess now!” retorts Heily who is watching her plan. Poor Clarissa, she now have to clean up the mess and do her own chores as well. Heily on the other hand smilies as her nasty trick worked. Later that day, Heily orders Clarissa to go to the shops to buy food for tonight’s dinner so Clarissa does so but when Clarissa arrives back and shows her the groceries she was told Heily is less impressed. “Why the earth did you bought more vegetables than meat?!” she shrieks. “Because there wasn’t enough meat left for sale,” replies Clarissa, “Every butchers I went in, hardly enough meat left.” The TV news on Heily’s TV says that the meat prices are now higher and due to butchers haven’t got enough meat to sell for all the customers and a delivery is expected to arrive tomorrow. After Heily watches and hears what the news said, she was livid; she blames this situation on Clarissa and told Clarissa to stay in her room for the rest of day. Poor Clarissa, the lack of meat wasn’t her fault yet Heily blamed it on her; she feel very sad and felt very hungry too as Heily refuses to cook dinner for Clarissa and made it for herself only. The next day, Clarissa feels very depressed and a little bit thin as she didn’t have dinner at all. Heily, not caring about Clarissa, gets her megaphone to her bedroom door. “WAKE UP YOU STUPID CAT, TIME TO GO SHOPPING AGAIN!” she yells, poor Clarissa is so shocked that she falls off her bed; she had an awful fright! “Meow! My head!” Clarissa wails as she gets dressed and goes down for breakfast but to her horror, there is no food on her plate. She sighs and goes shopping instead, but when she comes back after purchasing more meat; she sees her luggage already packed for her and a very furious Heily. “I don’t want you as my roommate anymore despite what the tenant in charge told me. I am not willing to help you anymore. Your parents made a big mistake to let you stay at my home even though I said no.” “But...but...I thought you welcomed me to your home,” says Clarissa, trying to stand up to herself. “NONSENSE! I had it with you, I hate shy characters like you and you’re the example that I absolutely hate you,” says Heily, she throws Clarissa’s luggage out of her front door and kicks Clarissa’s bottom hard out of the front door too. “NOW GET LOST YOU STUPID CAT!” “But Heily...” says Clarissa. “CLARISSA GO, AND GET OUT OF MY LIFE!” shouts Heily and she slams her front door shut. Clarissa feels worse than ever before, tears wells up her eyes as she feels heartbroken and unloved; she cries as she picks up her luggage and her personal belongings and goes on her way. Heily, who is watching, laughs and laughs; her nasty mission to kick Clarissa out of her home worked.
Clarissa walks to find a new home and a roommate to live with but no matter which home she ask to stay in Wonston, no one wants her either there’s not enough room for her or they simply refuse due to their reasons; Clarissa sadly have to go to a different place as the living style of Wonston is not as good as she hoped. She goes to Wonston Station to purchase a ticket to Main, she pays for the ticket and decides to go to the station cafe to have something to eat as she haven’t eat any breakfast at all. After she ate, she sits on a bench waiting for a train to catch; she still feels sad as the mean thoughts and phrases from Heily really upset her. Tears streams from her eyes as she remembers the bad things Heily had said and done. Nathan Chan The Chinese Steam Locomotive arrives at Wonston Station with some coaches to pick up and set down passengers. As he grinds to a halt, he notice Clarissa feeling sad, “Are you alright?” he asks. “No,” says Clarissa. “Oh. I’m Nathan, who are you?” says Nathan, “I’m Clarissa Lea Cat,” says Clarissa, “Nice to meet you.” Nathan looks at the timetable, the departure time for him to leave Wonston is 35 minutes however his driver and fireman decide to oil and grease his moving parts before his long run to Main Station. “May I ask what happened?” asks Nathan, Clarissa tells Nathan what have happened. “That hyena, I remember the time that she pulled the emergency cord and tried to blame you but Heily got a stern talking with the stationmaster,” says Nathan, “Now that you got a ticket, you can go to Main.” Clarissa climbs aboard on one of the coaches and when all is ready, the guard blows his whistle and waves his flag; Nathan departs. A moment later, the guard is ready to check the passengers’ tickets. Clarissa shows the guard her ticket and the guard checks it and punch a hole to indicate that he have check her ticket before checking the other passengers as Nathan and the coaches trundles along the track.
Soon, Nathan arrives at Main Station. Clarissa disembark the train and thank Nathan and the crew for the journey. “Will there be good friends in here?” Clarissa asks. “Yes,” answers Nathan, “There’s a cheerful kittycat called Mittens Harriet Cat and her friend Felesha The Two-Tail Fox. You will find them at the park.” Clarissa thanks Nathan for the advice and goes off to find her new friends. After showing her ticket and is through the ticket barrier, Clarissa walks along the sidewalk pulling her luggage until she found Mittens and Felesha. Plucking up her courage, she asks them “Can I...um be your roommate, meow meow?” Mittens and Felesha cannot believe it, a new kittycat wants to be Felesha’s roommate; Clarissa then introduces herself to Felesha and Mittens. Felesha asks Clarissa what happened with her and her former roommate Heily, she sadly explains the ordeal and end up crying again. She worries that she’ll be rejected again, but Felesha being a friendly fox invites her to her home to be her roommate and a new friend to her and Mittens. Clarissa now feels very grateful and happy and both Mittens and Felesha introduce themselves to Clarissa, the three furry girls all go to Felesha’s home at 26 Eddison Street in Main.
Once inside Felesha’s home, Felesha shows Clarissa her bedroom, the kitchen, the bathroom and all the rooms in her home. Clarissa begins to unpack her luggage in her new bedroom and she is soon adjusted to her new home. But what about Heily, Clarissa’s former roommate? Well she may have completed her nasty mission but she is now in trouble. Without Clarissa to help out with the chores and the bills that arrive on the post, she is very very angry about it. So angry that she is forced to get a job in Wonston to pay for the bills as well as food, clothes and things she wants. She even call her sister and her sister’s boyfriend to live with her as she is struggling to live on her own and with limited resources and money she has. Heily becomes more and more resentful as she now works as a fast food worker at Nath-Burgers in Wonston in order to make money to live.
Clarissa now feels very happy, she now has a new home, new friends whether be furries or trains, and she is now Felesha’s new roommate. Clarissa now lives happily ever after.
