Beautiful Rose- Chapter 9: Looking For Hope
Jolie woke up the next morning and looked at herself, forgetting everything for a moment. She frowned at what she saw. She was still the catlike creature and it was still all too real.
The princess heard her tummy rumble. "I'm hungry," she said to herself. She scanned the forest, "But what do I eat now?"
She tried imagining different things in her mouth. Roast beef, turkey, apples and oranges. Porridge and chocolate. They all tasted delicious but she couldn't get any of them in the forest out here. Not that she knew of anyway. So, she tried something that he beast instincts were telling her to try. Rabbit. Raw rabbit fresh from the bone. Or deer or some other poor little creature in the woods. But not cooked. Not roasted
No. Jolie wouldn't. She couldn't! She refused to kill any animal. Even if it meant starving to death as a beast. She might as well do some good in her state and decided to become vegetarian. So she thought about some of the lessons she was taught at the castle. W

Jolie ran faster and faster. Everyone had happened way too fast and it only happened about five minutes ago. Everything still had to set in her head so she could get focused and fix the problem.
Jolie saw the woods ahead of her. She somehow managed to run through the village and not have anyone see her. But there was one problem
She had to go by her grandfather's cottage. How was this going to work?
Jolie couldn't remember if he was at the castle right now or at the cottage but she didn't have much time to think. She was standing on the bridge that crossed from the cottage to the village. Anybody could come out at any moment and see her. Jolie looked at the cottage but she didn't see any lights on. Maybe her grandfather was at the castle or inside working on one of inventions. Either way, she hoped he was distracted somehow. Jolie ran off the bridge and behind a tree where no one in the village could see her. Nor anybody near the cottage. Good
"Maybe I can tell him,"
