Story of a secret heart: Guy’s Sisters

After the ceremony, Katlyn said nothing, but instead turned and stormed past a number of guests while she gathered her sisters to leave. Then, on her way out, she grabbed a very large vase, nearly as tall as she was, that was a centrepiece in the entrance hall of the hotel, and pushed it over in a spoilt little brat rage. It smashed into a thousand pieces, while all the other guests, including the bride, turned to look in complete shock. As she sat in front of me relaying the story over and over again, seemingly quite proud of herself, I felt not only disgust for her but an awful dread right in the pit of my stomach.

At the end of the day, I had to entertain the fact that Guy was directly related to that girl; they were ultimately cut from the same cloth.

The day I was adopted….written by Coco

The human female began to call me a ‘foster fail’ which the other cats told me meant that no one wanted me. Although I was very upset by these remarks I wasn’t all that surprised. I didn’t really like humans, they scared me a lot, and so I hid from them whenever I could.

They also annoyed me. They seemed so unevolved, and even when I tried to display my hatred towards them by staring at them in disgust, they strangely continued to coo over me.

I didn’t really like the other cats much either, they were all so friendly with the humans, and I always felt a bit left out.

When other humans would come to the house to see the other cats, they were never interested in me, I was always too shy and timid to be appealing to them, and so I was never picked to leave with them.

Then one day, as I was sleeping on a lovely pile of towels under the kitchen table, I was rudely awakened by the human female who picked me up and handed me to a younger human female who seemed intent on crushing me. I wasn’t really sure what I had done to deserve this, or why the older human female was allowing such behaviour. But as I struggled to break free, her grip only got tighter and tighter, and she whispered in my ear that she loved me. Now I’m not really sure how she could say she loved me, we had only just met! But I began to soften to her for some reason, she seemed somewhat sad, like she needed me. I had never been needed before. It was at that moment that she picked me, not any of the other cats, who were all circling her feet and meowing up at her, she chose me.

From that point on I loved her too.

Story after a secret heart (book two): Prologue

The night I lied to Guy and found out he was cheating on me, I called my dad. To be honest I don’t really remember all that much of what he said to me, or what I said to him (apart from the obvious crying of course), and I don’t really know why I called him. I suppose I just needed someone to talk to. I was so far away from my family and friends, I guess in that moment in time I wanted a little tiny piece of home right there with me. But one thing I did remember him saying, I guess trying to calm me down as I sobbed hysterically down the phone to him, was:

‘Why don’t you try writing things down. It might help you feel better.’

The rest, as they say, is history.


Story after a secret heart: haircut

Today I started writing book two! This is just a taster………..

‘As I slowly opened my eyes and was brought back to reality, I gently nodded my head and she began to cut off my beautiful long hair. As I watched chunks of my hair fall onto the floor, while Love Me Do by the Beatles played in the background, I thought I might begin to cry. However, all of a sudden a strange feeling of accomplishment came over me. I had survived. I was happy. And that was the best revenge of all.’
