Michelle squinted, taking a quill and dabbing it in ink so she could copy from a book Cornelius was having her read. She was starting to learn the alphabet, soon she'd be able to read and write like Cornelius could. She coughed, and took deep breaths in order to avoid a coughing fit, or perhaps another asthma attack. Cornelius had herbal remedies prepared in case she did get one; yerba santa leaves or licorice root worked the best. She couldn't understand why the gas had done this to her lungs, and her eyes. But it was just another thing she needed to get used to, like the death of her parents. After staving off the coughing fit, she sighed, rubbing her throat, and getting back to work.
It was then that Abigail burst through the door, followed by Russell and Edgar.
"Michelle! Are you here?" Abigail called out.
She peeked from behind the pile of books on the desk, "What's wrong?"
The three of them ran over to the desk.
"Humans are coming," Abigail answered, "Get up, Cornelius said there

He also enjoyed listening to his Mother's amazing stories about how she met The great owl, The rats of NIMH and the wise Nicodemus, although he thought she was just making them up to entertain him, His older brother, Martin, and their sisters, Teresa and Cynthia.

Penny breathed a heavy sigh as she parked her car at the staff parking spot at NIMH, taking the key out of the transmission and gripping the steering wheel. She wore her lab coat and her usual uniform but her hair was unkempt, and she’d neglected to wear her makeup. She felt as if those things didn’t matter much anymore.
Somehow, she worked up the willpower to open the door and step out of the vehicle, closing the door behind her. She couldn’t name a time in her life where she’d been filled with more dread. But she knew just what she was going to do when she got in. Penny walked up to the entrance of the building, and swiped a key card through a slot at the door to enter. Once inside she headed straight for the lab with the test subjects.
She passed by Dr. Clark, who began to greet her, “Oh, Dr. Stacy, how are you-”
“Sorry, I have business in the lab,” she replied hastily, walking past the scientist.
She slipped her keycard into another s

The furlings glided through the air in the flapper wingamathing for hours before the sun finally began to set through pink, parting clouds. The rain eventually began to let up. Once they were able to lock the wings in place, Abigail took to gazing over the side with Michelle as Edgar updated their map to include places they hadn't charted yet. But with the sun going down, they thought it best to land the craft somewhere so they could forage for more food and get some sleep too. They'd already gone through their meager food supplies.
"How far are we from Dapplewood?" Abigail asked Edgar, looking over his shoulder.
"I'd say we've almost tied our record now for the furthest we've ever been," he answered, "But the black trail hasn't taken us to any humans yet."
"We just need to keep going," Abigail answered, looking at the map, "Of course, after we stop to camp out somewhere."
Abigail looked at the regions around the black trail. She blinked when she noticed they weren't far from Oakdale m

Back at the lab that night, Dr. Penny Stacy was seated at a boxy black-screen computer monitor, clacking away at a keyboard and browsing NIMH's database, working overtime again when she'd have rather been home. Her boss, Dr. Strauss, loomed over her shoulder. He'd been pressing for results ever since they arrived back at the institute.
"Did you find anything on badgers yet?" he asked.
"No, not a thing," she answered, scrolling down the screen, "Mice, rats, squirrels, dogs, cats, monkeys…but never badgers. Not in this facility. Nor have there been any hedgehogs or moles for that matter."
"Hmm…" he stood up straight, "The government's going to want answers regarding this, Dr. Stacy. And I want it verified that this anomaly had nothing to do with that rat incident. Then, I want to know exactly why we have sapient rodents living out in the middle of the woods."
"Think it could be the work of someone outside of NIMH?" Dr. Stacy asked, "Some disgruntled former employee?"
"I've already contac
