DISCLAIMER:  I do not own all characters, and I will.... you know, I'm not selling this story, why am I putting a disclaimer up here anyway?

Ok, REAL DISCLAIMER: This story has no relation to Lalaland Stories.  Totally separate.  :)  This story is, however, somewhat linked to the comics that I will eventually put up...once I figure out how....

                                                                  ~~~~~~~~~

This is a story that I've been keeping on paper.....until now that is!  Yay   Well, I think that's it!  I have no idea how else to describe this!   My usual: Christian fantasy!

Enjoy!

Can't wait! But I know i'm gonna have to

I need to eat dinner, but I plan on at least writing the first chapter sometime tonight!  If not tonight, then tomorrow! 

I already have it on paper, all I need to do is copy it down, which won't take as long as coming up with something on the spot. I really do know what I'm doing for a long time in the story (a lot of it is already down on paper)!  And since I bore easily, especially with summer break coming up, I'm pretty sure I'll do a LOT of writing 

However....we're moving to a new house sometime this month, which will obviously delay me for a while.  I'll write when I can, though!

ok, I'll be waiting. But not patiently!!

“Night mom!”  I shouted down the stairs.  “Love you!”

“Love you too!”  My mom replied.

Smiling, I turned away from the stairs and towards my room, but then I remembered something: I didn’t say goodnight to my dad!  Hoping he was still awake, I turned back to the stairs.  “Goodnight dad!”

No response.

DANG IT!  I missed him again!  As I walked into my room, I made a mental note to say goodnight earlier next time.  I was unconsciously forming a habit of being too late to say goodnight, and I felt horrible every time I did.  It was just my thing; I wanted to make sure that my parents knew that I loved them.  Why?  Because you never know what day will be your last time with them, that’s why!  A bit of a bleak mindset, but it was true.

My older sister, Hannah, was a different story.  I did care about her, she was a part of my family.  But we were polar opposites: she was an extrovert, I was an introvert.  She was talkative, I was quiet.  She was a leader, I was in the background.  Expressing love to my sister was tricky, because I expressed love either by flat-out saying so, or by hugs.  I LOVED HUGS!!!  But, you guessed it, she hated hugs.  And I have said that I love her before, but it was painfully awkward.

Taking a deep breath, I slipped on one of my dad’s old, gray ARMY shirts and my mom’s old pajama pants.  I was the youngest family member, so I had a lot of hand-me-downs.  It didn’t really bother me though.  Instead, I listened for signs of our calico cat, Abby, who was affectionally named after out favorite NCIS character.  Nothing at the moment, which was rare; we had one of the most vocal cats on the planet!

Since it was already 11:15 p.m., I didn’t bother to brush or floss my teeth.  I’ll just do it in the morning, I reasoned.  Which probably wasn’t a good thing, since I had braces.  It was somewhat annoying to take care of braces, especially with an expander on the roof of my mouth.  The expander, in my opinion, looked like a metal spider with four legs.  I liked that; I like a lot of random things.

Climbing into bed, I switched off my lamp and slid under the blue and brown covers, letting out a content sigh when I finally got into a comfortable position.  Normally I would listen to music before bed, but I was too tired for that.  I wasn’t tired enough to fall asleep just yet however, so I was able to notice that I forgot to turn on my nightlight.  Yeah, I was a teenager who still needed a nightlight.  Sue me.

After turning it on and climbing into bed again, my thoughts went all over the place.  They usually do that, which doesn’t end very well sometimes.  But tonight, I had adventure on my mind.  Or rather, the lack of adventure.

Man, wouldn’t it be cool to go on one?  I fantasized.  It wouldn’t have to be anything major, like finding a different dimension.  Even though that would be cool……anyway!  It could just be something like solving a mystery, or finding a rare object with powers or something!  The Bible does say that ANYTHING is possible with God!

I stopped myself with a sad sigh.  You’re not doing anything like that unless it’s God’s plan for your life, which, let’s face it, isn’t very likely.  If that’s what Jesus has planned, you’ll do it.  But for right now, don’t let your imagination ruin real life.  Mom says real life can be fun!

I nodded in agreement with myself.  OK, fine.  I’ll just wait then….

….and keep waiting….

….still waiting….

….still waiting….

.......

....Crud.  This was going to take a while.

Slowly, I felt myself begin to wake up, bright sunshine blasting through my eyelids.  Since I was already blinded, I kept my eyes closed until I really woke up.

It was a rude awakening, but a welcome one.  For about three days in a row it had been raining, and I had a complicated relationship with rain.  The weather often affected my mood, so you could imagine how three days with no blue sky would feel to someone like me.  But when I was outside in the rain, I liked it.  

Sometimes I wondered if my mind had a mind of it’s own.

A sharp pain in my left shoulder interrupted my sluggish, morning thoughts.  Did I sleep on one side too long again?  No, it felt more like I was lying on something hard.  Rolling over onto my back, I felt around where my shoulder was.  

The first thing I noticed was that there was something wrong with how my sheets felt.  It was a softer, less blanket-like feeling.  For a moment I wondered if maybe I rolled off my bed and was lying on the carpet, but I wasn’t that much of a heavy sleeper.

As my brain began to kick back in gear, I noticed something alarming.  What I was feeling wasn’t my sheets, or the carpet, or anything like that.  It was grass.  Startled, my eyes flew open and I sat up, heart pounding.  The bright morning sun blinded me for a moment, but it didn’t take long to discover that I was not in my room anymore.

I was surrounded by rolling green hills as far as the eye could see, with a blue sky overhead.  A warm breeze toyed with my hair as I scanned the area.  There were a few trees here and there, but other than that, nothing.  Other than a few chirping birds, I was the only person around for miles.

Where am I?  I wondered, suddenly nervous.

It wasn’t a dream, that much I knew.  It was too real to be a dream.  But it wasn’t anywhere close to where I lived; Texas was never this hilly.  So where was I?

But the list of surprises didn’t end there.  As I lifted my hand to brush my hair out of my face, I took one look at my hand and froze.  Was I seeing things, or was my hand a light purple?  I blinked once, then twice, then three times, but every time I was met with the same result: purple skin!  Wait, no…purple fur?!  I examined my other arm, which looked exactly the same.  It was everywhere!

What the heck…?!  I thought.

In light of this new discovery, I decided to fully examine myself for any more changes, an odd mix of curiosity and dread building up as I found one new thing after another.  Actually, for the most part, I was still fairly normal: two arms, two legs, eyes, a nose and mouth, working senses, things like that.  But there were quite a few new things too!

The next thing I noticed was that my ears were not where they were supposed to be.  For a moment I started to panic, but then I reached up higher and found two large, circular ears.  A bit weirded out, I moved on and searched for anything else.

I was wearing different clothes, but that wasn’t too weird, as long as I didn’t think about it for too long.  I was sporting a white T-shirt with tan, camouflage shorts, topped off with light gray tennis shoes.  Everything fit perfectly, as if the clothes were custom-made just for me.

Standing up slowly, I suddenly noticed something in the corner of my eye.  Turning around, my jaw dropped at what I found: a thin, purple tail!  Almost not believing my eyes, I decided to test it out.  It moved!  No doubt about it, this was my tail.

I have…a freaking…TAIL?!?!  I thought.  Random…….but kinda awesome.  I laughed at my own comment.  Pretty sure I’m the only one who would be excited about having a tail. 

It was then that I put two and two together.  If I had a tail, and big round ears, was I a…?  My stomach in knots, I looked around for anything that could show me my reflection.  For a moment I didn’t find anything, but then my eyes rested on a rather large puddle of water, only a few feet away.  With a small shrug, I jogged over to the puddle.  When I arrived, I knelt down and used one hand to hold my short, dark brown hair back.  Taking a deep breath, I prepared myself for the worst before looking down.

I…I guess that’s it…  I thought.  I’m a mouse. 

I felt frozen, unable to tear my gaze away from the mouse staring back at me.  Now that I knew what I was, what was I going to do?  I was on my own, in a strange place, surrounded by nothing.  Slowly I felt the horrible feeling of panic sink in, and I began to hyperventilate.  I had only been 100% on my own once, and I wasn’t in the mood to do it again!

Oh man, no no no no…. I thought, giving in to my panic.  “No!  Oh man, um, oh what am I gonna-?!”

Suddenly a sharp gust of wind slapped my face, interrupting my panicking and nearly knocking me over.  Readjusting my glasses (which I hadn’t noticed I was wearing until then), I looked up, surprised.  There was no way that was normal wind.  Quickly standing up, I brushed the grass off of my knees and looked around, but there was still nothing, not even a plane.

Before I could think anything else, an explosion caught me completely off-guard, causing me to jump.  Turning around sharply, I was able to see something red and grey before another blast of wind hit me again, sending my glasses flying right off of my face.

“Hey!”  I exclaimed to no one in particular.

It was then that I heard voices (not in my head, thank you very much,) that didn’t seem too far away!  Voices meant…people!

I.just saw this. It's awesome!

Thanks! 

Awesome! I likey! Just one question...What happens next!!!!!!!!!
