One day, I fell asleep on the MTR. When I woke up, the train was empty.

All the streets and the buildings were empty, too. I couldn't see anyone.

I could do whatever I liked! I went into a shopping centre.

Suddenly, I heard a voice say: 'What is it? It's so small.' I turned around. It was my cat, but it was as big as a bear.

'It's me, your mistress,' I said.

'I don't know who you are,' the cat said, 'but I want you to be my wife. If you agree, I will give you anything you like. If not, you will die of hunger.' The cat then locked the gate.

'I am a human, how can I become a cat's wife? It's nonsense. But, If I don't agree, I will die. What should I do?' I thought.

Three hours later, the cat asked 'Will you marry me?' 'Yes. I'm hungry. Please give me food.' The cat opened the gate.

As it gave me food, I bit the cat very hard. 'Oh, my paw,' the cat cried.

I ran out of the shopping centre and into the MTR station. The cat ran after me.

A train was closing its doors. I ran as fast as I could and just made it, leaving the cat behind. I felt exhausted and fell asleep.

'The next station is Kowloon Tong.' I woke up.

Was it just a dream? The first thing I did when I got home was get rid of my cat.
