Drawing his sword, GarGar shouted, “En guard!” He charged directly at Diego Diablo who barely had time to parry GarGar’s thrust. GarGar’s one conscious companion followed suit and the forest was filled with the sound of steel clashing against steel. What Monsieur Diablo had hoped would be a routine hold up devolved into a life or death struggle with the best swordsman in the Kingdom.
Meanwhile, GarGar’s long suffering valet regained consciousness, shook off the fog in his head and acting quickly, grabbed one of Diego’s boots in an effort to pull him from his mount. Thanks to this distraction, GarGar was able to knock his opponent’s sword from his hand. Seeing their leader disarmed shocked his fellow robbers and they immediately fled the scene, leaving Diego Diablo to his fate.
“Yield!” Shouted GarGar, le comte des Deux Chats, his eyes flashing with the luminosity of the righteous. “Yield, or die!”
Diego tried to spur his horse to flee, but with the tenacity of a pit bull, the valet held onto Diego’s boot, slowing his progress. GarGar and his companion quickly seized Diego by the arms. “Well done, Jacques!” Shouted GarGar to his valet.
“I beg your pardon, my lord, but my name is Felipe,” replied the valet.

Great fight scene! Cat’s do love boxes don’t they?
Hows Gar-Gar doing?
He’s well, thank you! I know Pirouette is glad to have him home. During his absence, she cried day and night. It was truly heart rending!
I’m so glad.
Cats love the solitary life but when they make a friend they really love them and really miss them too. I’m pleased for Pirouette.
Me too! I call her my loyal henchwoman because she is almost always by my side. She’s become a dear companion and friend. She and Garçon have returned to their play but without their previous ferocity. I was so worried about the little fella, and the relief I feel is palpable. 😺
Oh he’s learned to be more chilled after his adventure has he? thats not a bad thing.
I’m so glad you have him back.
Oh, this scene is brilliant. I can imaging his eyes glaring at me in the dark.
Thank you very much! Yes, our GarGar is quite the cat. During that week when he was on the lam, he decimated the population of field mice in our yard. I don’t know if there were any survivors!
Way to go, GarGar!
GarGar is the man!
