By:Andrew Hopkins

Once upon a time there lived a Mouse and a Cat.The Cat was a liar.The Mouse did nothing bad.They where friends."Hello Cat,"said Mouse,"Where are you Mouse?" asked Cat."I' m in the refrigerator eating!"replied Mouse"Oh,"said Cat.Suddenly Cat opened the refrigerator and almost caught Mouse. "Cat,I thought we where friends?!"asked Mouse."We where until now Mouse." "I' m fed up being thrown out,"replied Cat." So, Cat caught Mouse and lived in happiness indoors.
