Sample text:

Mei stretched her arms, leaning back against the mattress. She rolled over, feeling the sun rays on her face. Even without the chickens crowing, she knew it was time to get up. Two Shih Tzu dogs jumped on her bed. The black one Oxo, pulled the covers away, the white one, Tenshi, licked her hand and using her tongue to slap Mei's face.

So much for a lie-in. Since her brothers moved to the neighbouring kingdom of Oppai, the dogs took over their morning ritual of waking Mei up. Mei picked a blue dress to slip on, it was her favourite colour, didn't get spoilt by the dirt.

"Mei!" her mother roared. "Take a look at this!"

Gasping, Mei's hands shook. The tenseness in her stomach made her feel there was a knot in it. Her mother's tone sounded serious. She hoped nothing had gone wrong. "Are they all right?" Overcome with worry, she panted and dashed down the stairs.
