"Hush, hush, little girl." The old man rocked a small child. "Stop your tears. Here is a story, perk your ears." He patted the girl between her cat ears. "Let me tell you about misadventures of a boy named Kairo and his rabbit partner Arubi from beyond three towering mountains and two bubbling rivers."
"What misadventures, Grandpa?" The girl stopped her sobbing, wiping the last tear with her clenched paw.
"A many jaw-dropping adventures with butt-proud Camtaurs, Dark Elves in spandex, a cat acrobat or a band of Rorty Thieves with a mountain of treasures hiding in a desert."
"I love treasures!" The girl threw her arms in the air, crowing.
"Then listen closely. Let the story unfold in front of you."
The girl's eyes widened. Her lips spread into a wide smile, showing sharp fangs. The bruised knee stopped hurting with her grandpa's words.
