Savio sat in front of the door, watching it, waiting for Yvonne to come in. But she didn't come. Savio sat and waited all day, but Yvonne did not come that day.
"She said she'd be gone for a week," said Angelica.
"It has been a week," said Savio.
"But she hasn't been gone for a whole week. By tomorrow she'll have been gone for an entire week," argued Angelica, thinking she was very smart.
"I guess I'll just have to tell you a story!" said Savio, jumping up on the sofa even though Yvonne didn't like him sitting on the sofa. He got his hair all over.
"But I don't want to hear a story!" whined Angelica.
"I thought you loved stories," said Savio. "So you have to hear a story!"
"But I don't like your stories!" said Angelica.
"That was not nice," said Savio sadly.
"Fine," grumbled Angelica.
Savio was instantly happy once again, and started his story immediately. He spoke very quickly, wagging his tail the whole time, sometimes stopping to scratch behind his ear.
"Once upon a time, there was a little bunny princess named... um, Angelica. Yeah. Her name was Angelica. Princess Angelica loved to eat candy. She ate candy everyday. But she was very particular about how and when she ate candy. She could only eat candy at 2:26 PM while balancing on a pile of plates, and the candy had to be fed to her by her father while he was in scuba gear.
One day, her father went away to a distant land on some kingly business. So when 2:26 PM came around, Angelica's father was not there to feed her candy. Some of the royal court came and asked Angelica why she wasn't eating her candy, since she loved candy so much. She replied, 'I can't eat candy. My father isn't here to feed it to me in his scuba gear while I balance on a pile of plates.'
Princess Angelica wouldn't eat anything that day, either, all because she couldn't eat candy. In fact, when someone offered her candy, she said, 'No! I hate candy!'
'But you love candy,' said the doggy offering her candy.
'But I don't love candy coming from you,' replied Angelica.
That was very rude. The doggy Angelica had been so rude to was Lord Dogazsavio, who was a good friend of the king's. So when the king came home and learned that Princess Angelica had insulted his friend Lord Dogazsavio, he sent Angelica away to a barren land where there was no candy, and Angelica was sad forever."
"Are you saying that when Yvonne gets back and finds out that I was mean to you she's going to send me away to be sad forever?" asked Angelica.
"What!?" exclaimed Savio. "How did you figure that out?"
"I'm smart," replied Angelica with a smug face.
"No you aren't!" said Savio. Angelica immediately looked insulted. "Whenever Yvonne tells you stories you don't understand them."
"That's because Yvonne is a weirdo," answered Angelica.
This angered Savio, and he had to defend his owner's honor, so he took Angelica and locked her in a barren closet where there was no candy, and Angelica was sad, not forever, but for a pretty long time.
