Many say she is a myth and believe she was made up for children's bed time stories, but they are all wrong. For the big red house on 1234 Gnome Lane, is the home of this poor little lady. Her name is Billy Stickfeather. Billy is the poor little lady who lives in the man's shoe. She was born very small and did not grow very much. Her parents left her in a shoe one day at the shoe store and she has been in that shoe ever since. She has no friends and sometimes get lonely but no one can hear poor little billy who lives in the shoe.

Billy wanted so much to get out of the shoe but she was too small. Only six inches in height it was amazing she lived long enough to get stuck in the shoe. She was 10 at the age she got stuck in the shoe and had to wait 2 years till someone bought that shoe. Billy remembers clearly the first time that big, smelly, dirty foot went into the shoe. The man ran around bouncing billy up and down. She almost passed out from the horrible smell, but knew if she was not careful she could get stepped on. She maneged to get some moldy old chesse of the man's 4 year old sock. The man was a pack rat so billy knew she would be living with this man, in his shoe, for the rest of her life. The man took the shoes home and put them in the closet.

Billy was excited to be gone from that shoe store she had lived in for 2 years. She went to sleep in the nice warm shoe and woke up the next day to find a huge suprise. A little ball of dust was in the shoe. Billy had not played with a toy in 2 years, so she went and picked up the little dust ball. She tossed the dust ball for a couple of minutes, but then the ball of dust floated out of the shoe. Billy was again just the little poor lady who lived in the man's shoe.

Months passed by as Billy's home was tripped over, stepped on, and eventually smothered with dirty laundry. Occassionally a crumble of fast food would fall from the dirty man's pockets, but Billy hated fast food. She decided to live off of the cotton lining instead, and the man, who occasionally tried on the shoes just to throw them back into the closet, began to wonder why the insides of his never worn shoes were deteriorating. The man, also known as Rob, began to ponder the possibilities of why a shoe could wear out so easily.

Rob paced the room of his tiny apartment back and forth trying to figure out the big mystery, extra careful not to step on the piles of clothing, that were mixed with old food bags and dirty plates, because he knew that sharp forks could be buried inside of the dangerous piles as well. But he always managed to trip over Billy's poor shoe. Finally he came to a conclusion. He must have rats!

Billy became terribly frightened about Rob's assumed possibility of rats, because she knew that the chances of him putting rat poison in the shoe were very high because these "rats" seemed to be all over his old, crusty shoes. She screamed as loudly as possible,and quickly ran back and forth through the shoe, in hopes that she could distract Rob, but her seemingly loud scream did not even reach the outside of her prison.

Rob pushed a pile of leaky trash from in front of the doorway, and stepped outside to be greeted by the cool, crisp air of october. No wonder he had rats, it was too cold outside for them to stay outdoors. He hopped into his car, and a few mcdonalds french fry containters fell to the ground before he could close the door, and headed towards the pest control center.

Rob arrived at the pest control center and was greated by Mr. Greaves, the man he had booked his appointment with. "Come along through Rob."
Mr. Greaves listened to Rob's pest problem and told him that the best bet would be rat poison and traps. Meanwhile Billy sat at home, lonely , in the shoe. She was wondering what awfull things the man in the pest control center had given to the big man. If only she could try and reach the lace of the shoe to pull herself out. She sat alone, in the dark, sadly pondering over how long she might live until she is poisoned.

A few hours passed and Billy decided to get herself together,she gathered her strength and started climbing up the lace halfway up she stopped and had a thought "if i leave this mansion of mine i will be homeless,i must stay and fight for my house"
Billy then climbed back down the lace and slumped in the corner with gasmask at the ready............

Billy sudenly smelled such a nasty smell. She thought it was the rat poison. She walked back and forth and then she saw, this green cloud of smoke come into the shoe. She tried to not breath it but could not hold her breath long enough. Instead of the poision killing poor billy, it made billy high. She had never been drunk nor high, so this was a strange feeling for her. She started to tumble and could barely stand. She triped and fell down. She tried to get up but couldnt move a muscle. Ten minutes later she was out cold.

Billy had been asleep for a few hours, when she choked on her own drool which had gathered in her gas mask. Awakening startled, she felt different but the same, she could feel something inside her changing. What could this be she pondered. Billy then began to twitch uncontrollably, she began to have a seizure, but during this she had a vision of strange place, and of a giant demonic head speaking to her in tounges. Finally Billy snapped out of it, she wondered what on earth was being said to her in that vision. Confused she tried to shrug it off as nothing more than a bad dream.

However, the visions didn't stop. In fact they became more intense than you could ever imagine. Demons raged, their eyes lit with the fires of hell, all screaming at billy. Flames surrounded her and undead creatures poked wailed with sick delight. Billy screamed and cried, she couldn't understand what was happening. So she screwed her eyes together and huddled in the corner hoping it would all just go away. "GO AWAY!" She screamed as loud as she could, over and over.

What felt like a lifetime passed. Billy was twitching and sobbing, the strange experience had shocked her so mush that now a big long clump of her once pretty hair was now bone white. She opened her eyes, but she was no longer in the shoe. Billy gasped in shock, the smell of leather and sweat was no more, she was surrounded by huge oak trees that soared miles into the sky and red and orange clouds filled the sky.

The sky and the red and orange sky disappeared. Shoe came back agian and while Billy thought about the vision she heard a car pull up, a door slam, and foots steps. A second later the door to the house opened and in came Rob with a smile on his face and wistling a tune. Rob took out a package and opened it. He reached for the leather shoe and poured the contexts of the box into the shoe. Little did Rob know that what he really bought was steroids...

Billy quickly scrambled to the empty end of the shoe, hoping to avoid what she thought was rat poison. She curled her head into her stomach and ducked into the tiniest corner she could find. The shoe filled with the dust of the steroids and Billy began to sneeze uncontrollably, and this constant sneezing caused her to wet her pants. "Oh my..," she thought to herself, somewhat disgusted at what she had just done. The dust slowly settled and eventually Billy got the courage to turn her head, which was buried deep into the crevice of the shoe, and look around. The steroids had formed a big pile large enough to make climbing out of t he shoe possible! With great excitement she made her way up the steroid mountain, and much to her surprise, she seemed to be growing taller by the second.

Billy started to grow and grow and grow. She got too big and was stuck half-way in the shoe. Her head and upper part of her chest was out of the shoe but her belly was too big to get through the shoe. She was stuck like that in the closet for 5 hours. Then the affects of the sterois wore off and she was small again. Still living in the shoe. She was ever so lonely and missed being with people. All of a sudden something clear and slimey came falling into the shoe. She had never seen any thing like it before. She felt the slimey stuff and it was warm. Then she tasted it and thought it tasted good. She went in the opening and slipped on the slimey stuff and fell down.

Billy fell down, hard. AS she hit the ground she fell inside her own spiritual being. Floating through her memories and emotional landscape, she picked up speed and passes through her body and experiences herself subjectively. A voice is chanting over and over:


All matter was condensed into a single moment, sound as useless as a one armed scissor. Everything was green and silent, ominous. " BEWARE, BEWARE," a strange and low voice calls out.

She woke up from that horrible nightmare she just had. She got up and walked around in the shoe. She smelled like an egg that has spent five months sitting out on the counter and rotting. She had to do something about the smell so she attempted to get out of the shoe. She sat down pondering a way to get out of the shoe. She figured out a plan. Since she had not had a hair cut in 2 years she had really long hair. She took some of her hair and used it to make a rope. She flung the rope made out of her hair out of the shoe. Then she used her rope to get the shoe lace to fall down into the shoe. Her plan worked but the shoe lace almost hit her.

She climbed up the shoe lace and out of the shoe. She was extremly excited to go exploring in a new environment, the same a kitten feels when they are in a new place. She slid down the shoe and onto the carpet. Billy walked out of the closet and into the bedroom. On one side of the wall she saw a bowl of water and a bowl full of cat food. She hadnot taken a bath in 2 years so she got in the bowl. She was also extremly hungry and ate some of the cat food. Billy walked around some more when all of a sudden Fugly the cat came into the room.

Billy quickly ran under the bed and hoped the cat did not see her. Fugly went to her water bowl and food bowl. Fugly could tell something had been there and was angry. She walked around the whole room looking for the creature that had been in her food and water bowl. Billy was scared and had no clue what to do. She found some pants under the bed and hid under them. As Billy looked out from under the pants she saw Fugly about to come under the bed.

As Billy peaked frightenly at the cat she remembered the steroids. Billy looked around and saw some steroid
powder by the counter about 10 ft away. Billy got all the energy in her and ran for the powder. Fugly was at
that moment looking in the wrong direction. But as Billy got closer to the counter Fugly saw her and
jumped after her. Billy ran up to the steroid powder and grabbed a handful in her mouth. Fugly at that
moment was getting closer to Billy. As Fugly ran up to Billy the steroids in Billy activated and she forgot
about the fright. Fugly ran up and jumped at Billy and Billy kicked her in the face. Fugly yelped and jumped
back with a broken nose. Again Fulgy came in close to attack Billy but this time she was cautions.

Rob heard the ruckus coming from the kitchen, and quickly ran in to check up on poor old Fugly. Fugly limped over to Rob and began to walk around his legs in circles and rub hair and blood from his broken nose all over his pants. Fugly then let out a big yelp as he stared at Rob helplessly. Rob swooped the poor kitty up into his arms to take a closer look at Fugly to try to figure out what on earth had happened. He paused and took a look around his cluttered apartment. It was a mess. "Poor Fugly must have hurt himself in this landfill of mine.." he thought out loud.. From that moment Rob was a changed man. He dropped his chicken mcnuggets to the ground and grabbed a big rake. He was determined to make sure that Fugly didnt get hurt again. He quickly began to rake all of the junk into a pile which eventually reached the ceiling. Meanwhile, Billy was quitely hiding inside of the liner beneath the bed to avoid getting hit with a giant rake. It was only a matter of time before Fugly sniffed her out. It was only a matter of time before she died.

Fugly came under the bed looking for billy. Fugly saw something move under one of the pairs of pants. Billy tried to get away from fugly but was not fast enough. Fugly pranced on billy. Fugly played with Billy like she does with a mouse. Then fugly ate Billy in one mouth full.

In a little used room in the house, unbeknowst to the late Billy, but sometimes observed by Fugly, lived two mice.

One was called In, and the other was called Out. They lived in a little mouse hole behind the skirting board in the store room.

In was called In because In stayed in a lot. Out was called Out because out would go out and fetch food, and perform the household errands including the paying of bills and the collection of mousemail.

Out could always outsmart Fugly, and would use the back door rather than the front when Out was being a fieldmouse. Out used to think that Fugly was more interested in things going on at the front end of the house, because Fugly could be heard hissing and scratching at things under beds sometimes.

One day, In woke up and complained to Out about feeling unwell. In's pallor became grayer as the day went on, and blood pressure dropped, and temperature skyrocketed, and a great nothingness beset In. Out was worried about In, and went to fetch some mouse medicine from across town late afternoon.

On returning, and entering the back door, Out's worst fears were confirmed about In, even before the last little stretch of floor leading to the hole in the skirting board in the far wall of the store room. Out knew that lifelong companion In was dead.

Just how did Out know that?

In stinked.

Billy felt herself become enveloped by the soft warm tissue that was fugly's throat. As Billy slid down she began to choke. There was no air in the cocoon she was traveling down, and as she began to sink, faster and faster, she became more and more terrified. And then she was out in the stomach, where she was able to breathe in a breath of stinking, rancid air. She fell to the bottom of fugly's stomach, with the chewed up catfood and hair from fugly licking himself constantly. The juices that covered her began to burn very badly, and she began to cry, resigned to a slow, painful death. And then, amidst the garbage dump that was fugly's stomach, she saw a glint of metal

Billy quickly grabbed the mettle thing. She did not know what it was but it had a very sharp point at the end. She stabbed the cat to cut away skin for her escape. She made the hole big enough for her to escape and jumped out of the stomach onto the floor. The cat fell over and died from blood loss. Billy felt bad for killing fugly. She cried and cried and cried and cried and cried untill she saw a mouse. She went to follow the mouse. She followed the mouse into his home. Billy asked the mouse what his name was. The mouse responded, "my name is out, what is your name?" Billy told out her name was billy. Since In had just died Out had an extra bed. Billy asked Out of she could say there for a little while because she did not want to go back into her shoe.

Billy and Out sat down at the little mouse table. Out got some of his best cheese to eat for dinner. Billy was so excited to be eating something fresh. Both Billy and Out talked for a long time. They both got tired and decided to go to bed. Billy had forgotten what a bed feels like. She loved the feel of the warm blanket against her face. She had a pillow and a mattress. She felt like she was in heaven. She had never felt this happy.

All of sudden she woke up. It took her a minute to open her eye's up. She looked around and saw that she was in the shoe. It had all been a dream. She was really dissapointed that none of it happened. She wasnt sure if she would ever make it out of that shoe.

* An escape, of sorts... *

Billy slowly opened her eyes, it was the morning. Even though there wasnt really any light down in the dank and dark shoe Billy could still tell it was morning. The tiny sound of music on the radio blared out and pierced her dream, a dream of a better place.

All of a sudden the shoe began to move. The movement jolted Billy and she fell to her knees. This was a great suprise to Billy as the shoe hadn't left the stale cuboard for what seemed like an age. For a short moment Billy sawdaylight out the top of the shoe, then darkness again: Billy and the shoe had been placed inside a bag.
Of Billy went inside the bag, it was a very bumpy ride. Billy could here strange noises from the street and was scared, not knowing where she was being taken. What was going on?

What Billy didn't know was that her owner was on her way to the shoe bank to donate the pair of old shoed to charity! This good deed would spell the end for little Billy. However something happened. All of a sudden Billy started hearing shouting and the bag began to shake,

"Hey! what are you doing you creep!"
"Gimme the bag loser"
"Arrrggg.....HEY STOP"

Billy's owner had been mugged! Billy was now being violently shaken around in the shoe as the mugger ran away at full speed with bag. Poor little Billy was scared and confused as she sped away into the distance in the hands of a criminal.
