Georgina thinks tonight's story is not very creative. A little girl wanders off her parent's campsite into the deep, dark, misty woods. She comes across a stone cabin, knocks on the door, and an old woman lets her in. The old woman, Beatrice, and her tabby cat, Sophie, guide the girl back through the forest while reciting ancient forest legends. The girl's parents are upset with the child for wandering off the campsite but relieved to find her safe. They reward the old lady for being so kind. The End.
"Nice story. Now, sleep tight Maggie."
Maggie winks at her mom, turns over on her side and closes her eyes.
As Georgina shuts Maggie's bedroom door, she thinks she could write a better plot. Then, she completes her evening chores, writes in her diary and goes to bed.
The next morning, when Georgina enters Maggie's room, she stops and rubs her eyes. She shakes her head and stares at Maggie. A tabby cat is nestled against Maggie's shoulder.
"Maggie, wake-up! Where did that cat come from? I've never seen it before."
"Mommy, yes you have. This is Sophie. Beatrice gave her to me. Isn't she cute? Mommy, what story will you read to me tonight?
