Each Wednesday Stevie will post a sentence to start the ‘Ninety Nine‘ story off, and then anyone can join in and finish it so that the story has a total of 99 words. Some Ninety Nines will be more difficult to finish than others. Please keep it reasonably clean. Thanks.

Before sailing through the air and landing on all four feline feet.
A sigh of relief escaped from my lips…
