The Adventures of Taco and Cheeseburger Ch. 14

by Maria Yniguez and Lindsey Michelena

In the woods…..

“Taco. Taco!” Taco quickly wakes up to hear Cheeseburger, now a wolf, whispering her name. “Hemingway woke up! He’s looking around for us. Let’s see what happens next!” says Cheeseburger. Hemingway calls their names, then slowly walks away. He says, “Where did they go? Last night they said something about collecting more firewood…and now they’re gone. They either got killed-what a shame-” at this, Hemingway grins to himself. “-or they ran away! But why would they do that? Unless…they know…” Hemingway stops, shocked. “I did talk about my plans out loud the other day..oh, what a fool I was…but it’s over now. Whatever happened to them, they’re gone now. So I guess I’ll just explore and try to survive. Eventually Bumshy Head will be mine.” Hemingway walks away. Taco and Cheeseburger follow him, keeping their distance and trying to stay hidden. Eventually, Hemingway ends up at the lake, and he drinks the water. “I’m hungry”, he says aloud. “I’m gonna try to do what that girl did yesterday-I’m gonna try to catch a fish.” He grabs a stick, he grabs a long blade of grass, and he digs, but he can’t find a worm. “There goes that idea”, he says. Hemingway gets an idea, and he climbs back down to the lake’s edge. He puts his paws in the water, but pulls out nothing. “Oh, what am I doing? I can’t do anything! How am I supposed to get food? How am I going to survive?” He climbs back up and slowly curls into a ball. Cheeseburger pities him. “Taco, look at him! I feel so bad!” Taco sighs and replies, “I know, but he is probably tricking us. We have no reason to even trust him. After all, he was able to find us and that probably took awhile, and he looked well fed. Let’s just explore the woods.” ¨Ugh, you’re probably right. Exploring sounds good.” The girls transform into their human forms and start walking through the woods.
