Hi. You probably think that being a piece of toast AND being a cat would be boring. But it’s NOT.
My name is Toastie and I’m a hybrid between a cat and a piece of toast. You could call me a hybread.
My owner is Charlie, and I also live with his mum and dad. You are probably wondering how I’m a piece of toast as well as a cat. Well, I accidentally got in the way of a ray gun with unknown effects. Whenever I rub on someone that’s evil, I can confirm that they start going on fire.
My adventure starts when an evil overlord trapped my best friend, the only other one of MY kind, Crusty. Our story begins at my home, where I was wishing for an adventure.
“I’m SO bored. I wish there was an adventure I could go on!” I said. Suddenly, without warning, Charlie told me Crusty had been trapped by Harold Poshface.
I really shouldn’t have, but I smiled. “Are you okay?” said Charlie worryingly.
“OF COURSE I’M OKAY! I FINALLY HAVE AN ADVENTURE!” Charlie and I had lunch and then we set off, a spring in our step as we went.
Now I know this was a life-or-death situation, but we had not had an adventure for a while. After a long sturdy trek, we came to Harold’s cave’s entrance.
“What’s your business?” said the guard.
“We wish to speak to Poshface.” Charlie says, annoyed.
“Ah yes, Barry and Toastie. We have been expecting you. Come in.”
“IT’S CHARLIE!” Charlie muttered through gritted teeth. And then we walked in.
“Help!” shouted Crusty. Just then, we spotted the poshest, evilest dog we would EVER see. “MWAHAHAHA! You will never stop- “
Then he was burned.
