The next morning, Gabe woke up to a faint yet annoying buzzing sound, flailing his arms around the head to prevent from any mosquito bites, and at the same time stretching out and yawning as the light outside made it’s way to his eyes, it still felt strange, the air, the sounds, everything except for the familiar call for him of his mother, as she was finishing up putting the last plate on the table, and a glass of freshly made juice. He slowly got up from bed and put on his red slippers, and making his way down to the kitchen, the smell of toast and juice made him feel hungry as he sat in front of one of the plates, saying drowsy: “Good morning ma”, caringly Mrs. Reyes got his plates to put a warm toast with some nicely spread butter, kissing him on the head happily replying: “Good morning sweetie”.
It was a sunny sunday that one, lots of bugs buzzing, and birds chirping in the distance, with his red shirt with a small skull in the center he made his way to the hedge, moving some branches apart to make way for him, and as his head approached the space the hole was blocked by Jack almost screaming: “GOOD MORNING CITY KITTY! “. Startled, Gabe fell on his back putting an arm in his chest as he breathed heavily, with his vision slightly failing from the scare he made out the shape of the bunny making it’s way through the hedge: “Hehehehe, sorry to scare you, I guess I should call you a scaredy kitty now ?”. Jack said smugly. Grumpying up his face and huffing a bit from sanger both of the commentary and the scare he replied: “hunf… at least I don’t have silly ears”. Giving up an air of arrogance, as he suddenly felt guilty, apologizing right after, blushing a bit from embarrassment, both for him falling and saying such a rude thing for just a joke.
The two started playing some time after their moms agreed to it, jack left fastly holding Gabe through his arm, making his way to some bunched up bushes with a strangely familiar sound behind them: “C’mon I want to show you something”, Jack said as they made their way to the other side, facing them was a little river with several beautiful rocks and a special shine due to the sun light, the kitty was a bit amazed by the sight he had never seen such a clean and transparent river before, one where he could even see the fishes swimming by, his excitement and joy were made visible as a big smile appeared in his face, Jack giggled a bit, proceeding to walk forward a bit and crouching near the water: “So what do you think ? They have rivers like this at the city?”, still aroused by the image Gabe replied: “no… not like this one, it’s so clean, and also shallow too! I bet we can touch the bottom easily”, making his way next to the rabbit as his hand made way to the rocks underneath the surface, his tail however wiggled it’s way to Jack’s, enticing itself to the fluffy bunny tail.
“Wanna cross it?”, Jack said, as he got up in a pinch, preparing to jump on the rocks ahead, before Gabe could even express his concern, the bunny was already on the other side, waiting for him reaching out his hand to help the kitten, Gabe in a moment of courage jumped on the rocks until he reached the last one located near but also a bit far from the other side, he stood there for a bit until he crouched and started sobbing of fear, Jack tried to reach out to him but failing nonetheless: “Come on Gabe, I know you can make it ! I’m here to catch you”, Gabe then followed up to jump in the rabbit’s direction, with some tears running down his cheeks, but as he landed his foot slipped on a weak patch of moist dirt, hitting his knees on the process. Jack then carried him on his back apologizing for the incident, carrying him to their next stop on the “Jack Morrison’s worldwide famous forest tour”, making the cat smile bit holding his tail in the other’s.
