Eight Bruno did not want to be a mouse any longer

 

 

While people were chasing and beating the witch mice, Bruno's mother screamed holding round Mr.Jackins' neck.
Grandma walked to them and put Bruno into Mr. Jackins' hand.
saying," Here is your son. Mr. Jackins. feed him a good diet! Goodbye!"
Bruno cried to his parents, "Dady, Mumy, It is fun to be a mouse! "
His mother screamed and ran away.
Mr. Jackins ran after her with Bruno in his hands.
Mrs.Jackins cried while running, "I hate the place, I hate this place.
I will never come here again for vacation."
She got back to her room and began to pack her belongings
Then she went to the entrance of the hotel.
Mr. Jackins put Bruno into a handbag with some snacks.
Bruno was busy eating the snacks and stayed silent.
Mr. Jackins caught up with his wife and they took a cab to take a train to their home in the suburbs  of London.

 

As soon as they got home, Mrs. Jackens went into the bedroom and buried her head in bed to cry.
Now Mr. Jackins was much more reasonable than his wife,
he was a successful  businessman after all.
Sitting on the sofa, he was trying to calm himself, thinking about how to deal with such a situation, how to comfort his wife and make her face the reality.
After quite a while, Mrs.Jackins stopped crying, her tears were limited after all.
Seeing that his wife had stopped crying, Mr. Jackins went up to her and said,
"Honey, let's take our time to find a way, Bruno might be able to turn back into a boy again."
Bruno, who was playing in the room, heard his father and yelled,
"I don't want to be a boy again. I don't want to go to school.
I don't want to do homework.
I hate the school, I hate the teachers. I hate to play with the schoolmates.
I only want to stay at home ,eat and play as I like."
 
 
Mr. and Mrs. Jackins spoiled their son and so Bruno did what he liked.
Hearing Bruno speaking as usual, Mrs. Jackins had a great pity for her son.
She went over and took Bruno in her hands and comforted him,
"Poor honey, you are right, be a mouse and don't go to school."
Mr. Jackins kept his mind on how to turn the mouse back into a boy.
Bruno ordered his mother,
"I want to go to the kitchen, you go and open the refrigerator for me!" 
Mrs.Jackins hurried to the kitchen with Bruno and opened the refrigerator door.
Bruno found something to eat and went to the drawing room to watch cartoons.
 
 
Mrs.Jackins thought of her favorite pet which was a grey Persian cat named Topsy.
She had been staying at the neighbor's home since the Jackins went to take the vacation,
Mrs.Jackins said to her husband,
"My dear,how about my Topsy, I miss her very much,
Can she come back? Will she eat Bruno?"
Mr.Jackins said,
"Our Topsy grew up on catfood, she never ate any mice before.
We can bring her home and keep an eye on her to see what will happen before we make a further decision,"
The next day, Mrs.Jackins went to the neighbor's home and brought Topsy home.
 
 
 
 
As they had planned, Mr. Jackins was sitting on the sofa with Bruno in his hands
 while Mrs. Jackins took Topsy  in her arms.
They were watching what would happen.
As soon as he saw Topsy, Bruno yelled to her,
"I don't want Topsy,I don't want her to stay at home!"
Seeing Bruno yelling, Topsy did not have any intentions to attack(her) him, she escaped and hid instead.
The fact was that Bruno often bullied Topsy and often chased her in the past.
Now Topsy could hear that the mouse was Bruno, so she still was afraid of him.
Bruno took a toothpick in his hand and went to chase Topsy.
So there was a strange vision of a mouse chasing a cat.
Mr. and Mrs. Jackins did not worry that Bruno would be eaten by Topsy any longer,
instead, they were happy to see Bruno chasing Topsy.
Seeing that he could bully Topsy as usual,
Bruno did not insist to drive her away.
Bruno did not always Bully Topsy, they sometimes played together.
 
 
Mr. and Mrs. Jackins often discussed how to turn Bruno back into a boy while he was not with them.
But whenever they talked about it with Bruno, he yelled,
"I don't want to be a boy again .I don't want to go to school.
I don't want to do homework.
I hate the school, I hate the teachers. I hate to play with the schoolmates.
I only want to stay at home , eat and play as I like."
Meanwhile, Mr. Jackins looked up materials about mice.
He was astonished to find that a mouse only has a two year life span.
He did not tell his wife about it or she would be sad and cry.
Mr. Jackins felt it was difficult to persuade his son,
then Bruno decided on his own he wanted to turn back into a boy.
While he was watching TV,
he saw an episode of program named ,which was about mice.
 
 
The program attracted Bruno's attention,
from which Bruno learned that a mouse could live for about only two years.
After watching the program, Bruno said to his parents,
"you must turn me back into a boy in two years' time, or I will die.
I don't want to die so young."
Mr. and Mrs. Jackins were both happy and worried.
They were happy that their son had finally agreed to turn back into a boy.
They were worried that they did not know how to turn their son back into a boy.
Still they said happily to Bruno,
"That's great! son, You are willing to be a boy at last.
We will try our best to turn you into a boy again as soon as possible."
Bruno said, Not too soon,
it's ok as long as you turn me back into a boy in two years' time.
Now Mr. Jackins found a good reason why Bruno should become a boy as soon as possible.
He said to him,
"Honey, a year later,
you will become an old man older than us instead of a boy."
Bruno yelled,
" I don't want to be an old man, turn me back into a boy as soon as possible."
then he went on eating.
Mr. Jackins was very glad to hear what Bruno had said and now he thought of a person, my Grandma.
