Toto observed the witches enter their humble abode. The apartment the witches rented was a simple one bedroom apartment with a living room, a kitchen and a study area. Toto scanned the apartment for weapons he could use. Even though he was smart and ruthless he was still working with paws. Toto squirmed out of Tara’s arms as he leapt to floor to quickly scurry around the apartment.
“Ah, that’s cute!” Tara said pointing at the little dog. “He’s checking out his new home!” Tara smiled. She loved that dog.
Toto quickly examined the space under the kitchen sink. There were various poisons and chemicals there. Toto made a happy little sound. Now he had something to work with.
Ms. Kitty Fantastico entered her domain through the secret passage that all cats knew about. She could smell the intruder before she saw it. The dead Munchkin was right. The assassin was already here. Even though she was young, she was fierce and extremely dangerous especially since she had just inherited all of Illyria’s discarded powers. Ms. Kitty Fantastico flattened her body against the cheap linoleum on the kitchen floor and began to stalk her prey like the mighty cats of the African savannah.
, that idiot cat is here.” Toto thought.
He turned and looked at the tiny kitty. His eyes flashed demon red for a brief moment.
“This is none of your business.” Toto said to Ms. Kitty in the secret language that all animals knew. He turned his body to face her and bared his teeth. “The end is coming. When Glinda arrives all of this will become a waste land.
Toto activated one of his weapons. Ms. Kitty felt the buildup of deadly mystical energy. Without thinking she waved one of her paws and stopped time.
Having Illyria’s powers were very convenient. Ms. Kitty scampered into the living room. Protecting her Humans were her first priority. Thankfully, she had Illyria’s strength as well.
It took her nearly an hour of subjective time to drag both Willow and Tara to a safe place.
Willow looked around the Summers living room. Buffy looked up from a book she was reading, looked down and then looked back up.
“What the…?!” Buffy said puzzled at the sudden appearance of Willow and Tara out of nowhere.
“Hey, I’m right there with c’ha” Willow said as she rubbed her head. She noticed her hands. There were scratches on her hands and legs, like she had been dragged across town. Tara looked the same.
“Working on a teleportation spell?” Buffy asked.
Willow looked up at Buffy. She had a certain amount of fear in her eyes.
“I have no idea how we got here.” She said.
Ms. Kitty Fantastico returned home. She had frozen time over most of the town and now she was back to remove the threat to her family. She saw the frozen form of the assassin in the kitchen. She extended her claws and leapt. She expected to tear him apart with one swipe.
Toto casually turned his head and looked at Ms. Kitty as she came down on him with her claws out.
“It a take a lot more that a super powered kitty to take me out.” Toto said to her.
When she landed he was gone. So the little runt could teleport. That’s probability how he got Dorothy to Oz so quickly.
Ms. Kitty Fantastico looked around the kitchen then got bored, so she scampered back to Buffy’s house.
