BOOM! Veronica, the tennis ball throwing oracle thing, exploded suddenly right as Yvonne came into the house. Fortunately, since Veronica had not had the features oracle balls were traditionally supposed to have, she did not release magic all over the house when she blew up. Yvonne never liked to sweep magic up off her rug.
She also did not like to sweep up tennis ball pieces, either. But, lucky for her, she would not get the time to that day, and so the obligation would pass to Angelica or Savio. Or, well, actually, it was someone else who ended up cleaning the tennis ball pieces, but we'll get to that soon.
As soon as they saw Yvonne, Savio and Angelica leaped out from the tennis ball pieces under which they had previously been buried. They ran up to her and hugged her, although she wasn't too fond of hugs.
"What happened here?" asked Yvonne. Angelica explained the entire ordeal about Veronica, and when she was done she began to complain that Savio had locked her in a closet. Savio retaliated and said that he had locked her in a closet to defend Yvonne's honor, and Angelica replied with something else, and so it went back and forth. But Yvonne stopped paying attention. She was looking at a calendar. She suddenly gasped.
"That's right. I've got to go," she said.
"But you haven't even told us what happened to you," said Angelica.
"Yeah! Tell us a story!" barked Savio.
Yvonne replied, "Sorry, I can't. I have another engagement this week. Sweep up the tennis ball pieces when you get a chance, okay? And this time you're in charge, Angelica. Don't set anything on fire and don't lock anyone in a closet unless they're intruders or unless either of you says anything that's just plain wrong, on the internet or otherwise."
Then she was gone. And the moment she was gone, Angelica decided to use her new power to boss Savio around. She shoved a broom at him, and he started sweeping. He was not the best at sweeping, because, after all, he was a dog.
Angelica was standing over Savio while he swept, smiling and thinking of all the things she could make him do, such as take out the trash and do her own homework and the like. She nearly threw herself through the ceiling when suddenly, with a loud bang! a small white bunny slammed the door open and hopped on in as if he owned the place.
"Oh, hi there!" he said with a big city accent. "Didn't know there'd be anybody here! See, I kinda got in some trouble wid some guys, so I'm just gonna hide out here, ya know?"
Savio looked up and recognized his friend Snowball. He dropped the broom and, running up to Snowball, licked him in the face. Snowball wasn't completely pleased with this. Angelica wasn't completely pleased with Snowball.
"You can't just come into someone's house whenever you want," said Angelica.
"But I just did," said Snowball. "Hey, got a nice place here!" And he hopped up on the sofa and turned on the TV. This, of course, irritated Angelica even more, especially since there were still tennis ball pieces all over the house. She picked up the broom, hopped over to Snowball, and thrust it at him.
"If you're going to stay here, you're going to work for it. Clean the tennis ball pieces up!" said Angelica.
"Well, okay, but I ain't usin' none of your conventional technology! That'd be crazy!" said Snowball. He hopped off the couch, drew in a deep breath, and sucked up all the pieces out of the house, and the dust, too, so that the house was cleaner than Angelica had ever seen. Savio clapped in admiration. Angelica couldn't believe her eyes. She was slightly disturbed by this little white rabbit, but she also appreciated the fact that he could clean things up so easily. He seemed to be a useful little rabbit.
Savio brought Snowball the few pieces of Veronica that remained. Somehow or other, almost magically, Snowball repaired Veronica. So Snowball had Savio's brief and undying respect.
Snowball did many other useful things around the house, like doing the laundry and cleaning the toilets, so that by the end of the day, Savio and Angelica set Snowball up on the sofa with the TV remote.
"I like comin' into places and takin' over," Snowball thought to himself from his sofa/throne.
