Mabel, Chapter 4: The Danger is Here

What hadn’t been clear to Mabel—and what Oginn had been hiding from her new friend despite knowing that cats were oblivious to changes in heart—was that the girl was looking for a change in occupation.

Mabel, Chapter 3: I’ll Take it, Friend

“I take every opportunity I can to do something like this,” Graff huffed as he jogged along the snowy path, the black cat struggling to stay in his arms. “It’s just so—just so darn cold.” He passed a few norn and bounded down the frost-caked stairs. “Out of the way!” he shouted. “I’ve got a … Continue reading Mabel, Chapter 3: I’ll Take it, Friend
