Ch. 13—Garbage Cans and Ham Sandwiches
The car ride with Cruella De Vil was a hard one for the five 강아지 to deal with.
Patch instantly told Scamp and Angel, “Cruella is dangerous. She’s a real… …. .”
“Wow, you’re allowed to say words like that?” Scamp asked, impressed. “My family would never allow that. It’s so cool to be able to say things like that without punishment.”
“We weren’t, trust me,” Patch explained. “My parents are strict on rules."
Lucky meanwhile, dourly stated, “We’re not going to have fun. She has these two mean blokes, Horace and Jasper. They’re mean and they don’t let us watch TV.”
“What’s that?” Scamp asked, amazed.
“It’s this box where 당신 see things on,” Penny stated.
“Wow, it sounds amazing!” 앤젤 stated happily.
“It must not have reached your family yet,” Lucky yawned. “We’ve had it for our whole life.”
“Well, our family is boring,” Scamp stated. “Why would they have something cool in the first place?”
But while he asked that, the car halted. The Dalmatian 강아지 froze up, horrified. Scamp and 앤젤 looked curiously at the front. Then the car door opened. With her, long gloved finger, Cruella smiled at them with her bony face. “Now, now, now, it’s time to come out,” she stated happily. “Come puppies, come puppies… Mommy Cruella will treat 당신 all right… come on…”
Waggling her finger at them as her heavy, odorous green smoke came wafting out of her mouth, the Dalmatian 강아지 fled to the corner as far away as possible.
“Phew!” Scamp stated. “She reeks… she smells better though than that stupid flowery smell my sisters like,” Scamp stated.
Cruella grabbed Scamp and 앤젤 harshly 의해 their necks, but the Dalmatian 강아지 were still not within reach. Looking in the car, she noticed them tightly packed into the corner, she stated, “You can’t get away from me this time… just go on and get out! Scotland Yard is here no longer, a-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha!!!!”
Cruella got onto the passengers seats, continuing to clutch onto Scamp and Angel, and groped in the back for the Dalmatians. They tried in vain to escape, but Cruella’s hand caught up to them quickly.
“Good, good, very good…” she stated. “Now, up to my place.”
With that, Cruella got out of the car, and walked right up to a mansion. “I bought this place,” Cruella stated proudly. “It’s mine… and it should be just right for your transformation into beautiful furry coats.”
Cruella opened the door, and there was a large, old, dusty, battered mansion. Cruella walked straight through the entrance hall and arrived in a rickety old living room with a lot of 나방, 나 방 eaten furniture. Sitting on the sofas in the furniture, were a slender, tall man and a short, squat man. The tall man had a glass of wine and eating a ham sandwich, and the short one was only eating a sandwich.
“Oh no!” Penny gasped. “It’s…”
“Jasper! Horace!” Cruella squealed in her sharp, cold voice. At once, Horace and Jasper turned in their seats.
“Oh, what is it, Miss?” Horace asked.
“I told 당신 I would do it!” Cruella cackled loudly. “The 강아지 are here, just like I said!”
“Blimey!” Jasper stated. “I can recognize this one all right,” he indicated toward Patch, who growled menacingly.
“And that’s the one that blocked the TV!” Horace stated, indicating Lucky.
“But what’s with these two, eh?” Jasper asked, looking confusedly at Scamp and Angel. “They don’t have spots… what are we supposed to do with…”
“Oh…I don’t care at all!” Cruella stated impatiently. “They don’t have spots, they’re worthless! But the point is, we got three of them… and why, they’d make a lovely furry coat, a-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha!!!”
“When are we supposed to do it?” Horace asked.
“Tonight!” Cruella stated insistently, throwing the 강아지 onto the 침상, 소파 as she lifted her arms up in excitement. “The job must be done tonight.”
“But how are we going to do it?” Horace asked.
Cruella shrieked, “I already told 당신 last time… kill the little beasts in any way 당신 like. But don’t mess up… do 당신 understand! I’ve been stalking these 강아지 forever because I need my 모피 coat!!! I order 당신 to spike the chow tonight! Do 당신 understand!!!”
With that, Cruella left the room, slammed the door, and she was wafting her green cigarette as she left, triumphantly cooing, “Oh, it’ll come, and when it does, why, this will be such a lovely 모피 coat.”
“We’re in trouble now,” Penny stated worriedly. “I don’t know how we’re going to get out… we can’t.”
“No, we can,” 앤젤 whispered to the others.
“But how?” Lucky asked. “None of us knows how to get out… we got help last time.”
“You seem to be forgetting,” 앤젤 stated proudly. “That I was an ex-street dog.”
“So… what do 당신 mean?” Patch asked.
“I can get us out of here,” 앤젤 stated. “And Tenderfoot has, I believe, enough experience to help too,”
“Sure!” Scamp stated excitedly. “I’ll go distract Horace and Jasper while 당신 do 당신 work.”
“Do we have to leave?” Lucky asked. “I want to watch television.”
“We can see 텔레비전 later,” Patch stated. “But I want to distract those ……s with him,” he indicated to Scamp.
“Right,” 앤젤 stated. “And I will open that door.”
Patch and Scamp crawled over to the television, where Lucky was captivatedly looking at, and started to bark.
“Jasper?” Horace asked. “How come they’re barking?”
“Aw, shut up!” Jasper stated. “We’re trying to watch What’s My Crime!”
Scamp then proceeded to jump onto the 침상, 소파 and started to tug on Jasper’s sandwich.
“Oy! 당신 nasty little runt! Leave my 음식 alone!” Jasper shouted.
“You be quiet, you’re no better than those puppies!” Horace responded.
Meanwhile, 앤젤 knocked over a garbage can, jumped upon it, and flicked the door open easily as Penny watched her with fascination. Incredibly, she hardly made a sound as she did her job.
“How did 당신 do that?” Penny asked as 앤젤 just smiled and winked at her. Lucky, however, was oblivious to the escape route and still watching television, and when Patch saw that 앤젤 opened the door, he hurried over to Lucky and stated, “She did it…”
“Oh, darn!” Lucky complained. “Do I have to go?” Lucky pouted. “I want to watch television.”
“Yes, and hurry!” Patch whispered. With that, the five 강아지 have made it out of the door, without Horace and Jasper knowing; they were still watching TV.
“Hee-hee-hee-hee!” Scamp stated triumphantly. “We did it!”
“Yes, it was easy work,” 앤젤 stated smugly. However, as they were congratulating themselves on their escape, they were blocked off 의해 some green smoke and a long, yellow, furry coat.
“Tried to leave already?” Cruella asked, smiling tantalizingly. “I was just getting my furry coat. I’m afraid 당신 can’t leave yet… you’ll have to pay a price that will be your bodies,” she stated with a devilish grin.
