Henri & Melon
Henri fell on his bottom. He raised his hands and asked for forgiveness.
The thing took hold of Henri by his collar & sank its teeth into Henri’s chest. Henri did his best not to cry, but tears streamed down his face like a river.
He heard his cat hiss.
‘‘No,’’ Henri tried to shout, ‘‘Melon get out of here.’’
Melon leaped into the air. As soon as it approached the creature, it was hit by the side by a giant blade. The edge of the weapon had created a deep cut by the cat’s neck.
Henri sobbed. He was tossed on the ground right by the cat’s side.
All he had wanted was to watch the stars and spot the constellations in the night sky. Now he wished he could turn back the clock, & just stayed in his room.
The thought of dying on the rooftop had never crossed his mind. Ç’est triste.
Henri used his last strength to crawl to his cat’s side. He felt rain drops fall on his face.
The rain slowly sent Melon’s & Henri’s blood right down the rain gutter. Henri placed one hand on Melon’s neck.
He closed his eyes while the rain continued to pour and mix the blood of Henri and Melon. Their blood flowed together down the gutter.
