Yeah, I think that's the issue too.
Maybe if we limit the number of votes allowed to be cast…
Jarret wasn't prepared for a such enthusiasm and so the mouse-boy only sat baffled while Fritz hold his hands and jumped up and down. Then, a small smile crept in the boys face…
A sudden appearance of Flitz' sister made Jarret quickly shook his hands free, as he turned to the older jumber, giving her a small nervous smile.
"You.. you're probably right -- I should get going...", he jumped down from the chair and turned towards the door. But before that he gave Flitz a big wide smile.
"Then-- see you tomorrow!"
Sun had already set and it was getting pretty dark, while stars shined on the deep blue sky. Jarret whistled and almost danced the whole way back to his home. Maybe he lost the fight, but who cared? He was going to have a playmate tomorrow! Nothing was going to ruin this great feeling of his!...
...Of course, he forgot the fire wood and was scolded by his mother when he got home. But even that didn't put his spirit down, even though he was tucked in his bed without getting his a dessert after the supper.
In his bed JJarret laid still hands crossed behing his back, staring at the ceiling and listening the sound of waves as they washed the shores. In his tiny room there was only one small window and faint glow of the starts and the moon brought themselves in, painting shades on the ceiling.
Jarret smiled. He was so excited that he hardly could fall asleep. The things he and Fritz could do tomorrow... Maybe she would like a treasure hunting? You never knew what you could find washed on the shores...
Suddenly Jarret remembered the "surprise" he was supposed to show his mother - but had genuinely forgot all about it. Half-mouse launched himself to the side of his bed, reaching for his shirt which was left lying on the floor. Quickly he reached his hand in its pocket and sighed in relief, when feeling the familiar shape against his palm.
Closing his finger around it Jarret dropped back to the bed, looking at his treasure he had pulled out. It was a beautiful green stone, about same size than half-mouse's little paw, flat and round. A different shades of green gleamed on it and rolled over its cold and smooth surface. It was really smooth, feeling much like a glass under the palm. Jarret suspected it was because of the ocean - there were always smooth stones on the beach and he had heard it was because the water made them so. The waves honed the boulders and pebbles so round and smooth.
Jarret lifted the stone above his head, watching how the moonlight reflected upon it. Against the faint light it looked more like a gem - Jarret liked to envision it was a gem. A gem lost from a pirates treasure chest, brought here from a distant exotic land...
Tomorrow was going to be awesome day.Closed - Thanks Flitz about the great game x) Now we shall proceed to the next chapter of out alt's lives! ^^
