Where we are – Mac (a mouse) has convinced Jerry (a cat) that he has magical powers to keep from being eaten. So far, Mac has specialized in algebra, but Jerry wants Mac to get Buttercup to go to the spring dance with him. You can read Part 1 here.
Mac: I’ve been thinking about your Buttercup situation. You just need to be yourself. Go up and tell her how pretty she is and ask her out.
Jerry: That won’t work.
Mac: Why not?
Jerry: She’s gorgeous. I can’t even remember my own name around her.
Mac: Does she already have a boyfriend?
Jerry: I don’t think so.
Mac: OK. What do you know about her?
Jerry: She beautiful. And has a beautiful smile. And beautiful eyes.
Mac: Never mind. Let’s look her up on MeowTime.
Mac opens up the social media site and looks at Buttercup’s page. She looks pretty much like a typical cat to him.
Mac: Wait a minute! She’s president of the Inter-species Tolerance League. That’s a little different. You can talk to her about animal justice.
Jerry: Yeah!….Wait, what? What’s Inter-Species Tolerance?
Mac: It means she thinks cats should be nice to other animals, not just cats.
Jerry: That’s kind of weird. Are you sure?
Mac (sighing): Yes, I’m sure. Look at the pictures she posted.
Jerry scrolls down and sees Buttercup posing with a bunny, a dog, and a horse. Oh my cats! She took a picture with a mouse!
Jerry: She’s friends with a mouse? How did that happen? This is too bizarre. I need some time to think about this.
Jerry went to school the next day. When he saw Buttercup, he couldn’t help staring. She was so pretty. But she liked mice??? As friends??
She saw him looking at her and smiled. He smiled back before hurrying home.
Jerry: Mac! Mac! She smiled at me! I think I’m in love. Make her want to go out with me.
Mac had been thinking since they had looked at MeowTime. He didn’t know that cats had inter-species tolerance leagues. It did seem a little weird, but maybe he could help Jerry after all.
Mac: Hey, Jerry! I had an idea. Since Buttercup is so open-minded about other animals, maybe you could send her a picture of us and that would kind of give you guys something in common.
Jerry: That’s a great idea!
Jerry posted a picture, “Jerry and Mac.” She responded with a heart emoji.
Jerry: Great idea, Mac! Now what?
Mac: Now you have to talk to her.
The next day Mac had Jerry take a couple of flowers for Buttercup. He handed to them to her and blushed.
Buttercup: Thank you! I loved the picture you posted! I didn’t know you had a mouse friend! That’s so pawsome!
Jerry: Mac is my magical mouse. He lives in my drawer.
Buttercup: That’s sweet! I’d love to meet him sometime.
They talked for several minutes and finally Jerry got up the nerve to ask Buttercup to the dance. She said that she would love to go with him. It was their first date, and they really liked each other.
Jerry decided to join the Tolerance League. Buttercup did meet Mac and they got along well. She explained to Jerry that Mac wasn’t magic, he was just really smart. Mac ended up feeling safe enough to stay in Jerry’s room.
