Karen quickly establishes a routine, so she and Pegasus can spend time together nearly every day.
Scene 8: Kitten Establishes a Routine
Over the horizon, the next day burst forth. Karen hurried back to the merry-go-round. From that day on, she walked to the carousel nearly every afternoon, even on homework-laden school days, though she always finished her homework on time.
September rushed by. The seasonal change of temperature welcomed October. During that magical month, Kitten’s left leg grew stronger. Soon, she no longer needed Joshua’s help to climb onto Pegasus’ back.
As the days shortened, so did the carousel open hours. In August and September, it was open every day except for Tuesday. Tuesday was “Anything Can Happen Day” on the Mickey Mouse Club, so Kitten was glad to stay home and watch TV for one day each week. In October, the carousel began closing on both Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Two days without Pegasus were too much, so she walked to the closed Hippodrome and waved at her horse through the windows. He always nodded back.
