James walked for three miles and did not find the cat. “Hey,” he said, “Something is wrong because I cannot find the cat in the city.” He sat down and tried to think of a way to make the cat stop hiding. He decide to make the noises like the normal cat. He think, “Hey! If I make the noises like the real alley cat, then I can make a cat a friend for sure!”

First, he made the soft “purr” sound. Nothing happened. No cat came to talk to him. Next, he made the small “mew” sound. The effect was exactly same. A cat didn’t come out to play. Now James was almost giving up, but before that, he made the loud “me-ow” sound.

Suddenly there was the instant response. A bucket of water made James soak. An old shoe hit him on his head. Someone yelled, “Shut up!” James was shivering from the cold water. He was suffering from the shoe. His emotion was depression. He was not liking the treatment.

But now the cats in the city feel sorry. One cat climb down a tree. One cat jump out a window. One cat came out a garbage can. They came to meet James, because the cat imitations impressed many cats a lot.

Now James has the new job entertaining cats. They can’t believe he is the real dog making cat noises.

9. The Pirate Ship Fairy Princess

One day, the giant cruise ship, Fairy Princess was sailing in the Caribbean. The accommodations were luxurious and beautiful. All the passengers were enjoying themselves, playing games, dancing, dinning, strolling about the deck and sunbathing by the pool.

But suddenly, disaster struck! There was a terrible economic crash, and the wealthy, affluent passengers lost all their savings and investments. At first, the passengers panicked. But then they mutinied and took control of the cruise ship. They fitted the Fairy Princess with guns and cannon, and set sail for reckless pirate adventure.

They attacked another cruise ship, the Fluffy Kitten. The pirates rammed the Fluffy Kitten and went aboard. The pirates stole all the passengers’ gold, souvenirs and fashionable apparel. Surprisingly, many passengers from the Fluffy Kitten thought that a pirate life would be more interesting than their ordinary lives of boredom, so they joined the crew of the Fairy Princess. The Fluffy Kitten was bigger than the Fairy Princess, but the pirates decided to sink the Fluffy Kitten, because it was badly damaged in the attack.

Next, the Fairy Princess attacked a US Navy aircraft carrier. The pirates pretended to be in distress, and flew the distress signal flag. When the aircraft carrier came closer, the Fairy Princess attacked. The pirates took all the weapons, ammunition, helicopters and jets. Then they blew up the aircraft carrier, sending her to the bottom of the sea.

The pirates went to France, to steal wine, cheese and French bread. Then they went to Italy and took many photos of fine architecture and stole many Renaissance works of art, and brought them back to the ship. Then they set sail for Asia, where they stole watches, handbags, fashionable clothing, music and videos. Most of the merchandise was pirated already. The crew of the Fairy Princess joked about the irony, and laughed merrily.

Then they sailed for Iran to get some oil to run the ship and some uranium to make a bomb. They took a lot of oil and uranium, but the crew decided that making a bomb was too dangerous, so they threw the uranium into the ocean. Then they sailed for Africa.

When the pirates in Somalia heard that the Fairy Princess was coming, they panicked, because the pirates aboard the Fairy Princess had become even more fearsome than the Somalis. The Somalis asked the United States to help them stop the terrible threat, but it was too late.

Now the Fairy Princess was attacking the Somali pirates with ruthless aggression. Helicopters and jets were striking the Somali cities, and on the ocean, many Somali pirate ships were burning and sinking. Some Somali pirates wanted to join the crew of the Fairy Princess, but the pirates aboard the Fairy Princess were not impressed by the Somali pirates.

Then the Fairy Princess set sail back to the Caribbean, and the pirates set up a base in Bermuda. The base was like a luxury resort, with a casino and lots of shopping. The pirates had many happy adventures together, with music and dancing on the beach every night.
