May’s new story is The Clockwork Cat. A story of a young girl, a clockwork cat, and a surprising talent. While I like this story, it suggests that there is a larger story coming later on but I haven’t ever quite figured out what the rest of the story is, so this is just that. A story.
Praline invents things, like the clockwork cat.
The cat, though, does things that even Praline doesn’t understand. It seems to think, though it’s only made of gears and clockwork gauges. While it might be a grand thing to have a clockwork cat, making something that nearly lives is forbidden.
It seems that the powers that be may already be spying on Praline and her family. What will happen to her if they find out?
The Clockwork Cat is a short story about a girl, her cat, and making sacrifices to be who you need to be.
