Another day has come, It seems like eternity since you last saw your pet. Something is amiss on the farm. Stretching, you enter the cold crisp morning air and look out over the fields. Right in front of you is where Jake sleeps. Normally he can be found working the sea of cotton somewhere on the horizon, but the fields have been barren all spring. Pangs of hunger break your train of thought. You can’t remember the last time you’ve eaten. Off in the distance the sound of mooing can be heard incessantly. Betty always complains when she hasn’t been milked. Where is Jake?
[[Check on Betty]]
[[Look for Jake]]As far back as you can remember Betty has always favored you the least of all the other animals. She always makes it a point to tell you how little you contribute to the welfare of the homestead and today is no exception. In fact, she seems determined “Oh I have so much milk to offer. Why isn’t he here already?” It is obvious that Betty is about to go into another one of her diatribes.
[[Look for Jake]]

The car is missing.You settle down on the hay inside the barn. You know this is going to take a while. “I hope you know that I am 10x more valuable than any other animal here. I deserve more space. I barely have 5 acres of good grazable land. Do you know how stressful it can be to find good grass with only 5 acres? Impossible. Jake barely gives me enough hay. How am I….” You see Jake, he seems scared. You want to run to him, but as you approach you notice that he is getting further away. You are suddenly in the woods. long gray snout… too many legs! Legs coming out of its face even. Suddenly you awake and find yourself in the barn again. Betty is still talking about how exceptional her creamy milk is. [[Continue to listen]]
