Chapter Nine

"I am a part of everything that I have read."

- Theodore Roosevelt

Later that evening as they were finishing the last of the pizza, Butler knocked on the door.

"Master Artemis?"

"Yes, Butler?"

"There seems to be a blue tabby cat laughing and rolling around the halls."

"Oh, no," Holly groaned. Artemis went out just in time to see the last of the silly grin disappear.

"How is he still here?" she asked.

"I'm guessing that the fact that he has evaporating abilities caused him to escape both the time lapse and the reverse code. He simply wasn't there."

He turned to her and asked, "So how do you feel about having a cat in our family?"

The End

"I can't go back to yesterday because I was a different person then."

- Lewis Carroll,

Alice In Wonderland
