“Something’s out there, and its close”, Lohnes whispered.
“I hear it.” Tal answered, before the rustling leaves gave way to a leaping mass of color and fuzziness. The animal hopped across her arm and settled atop her shoulder, scanning the area from its new perch.
“Daniel, look! It’s so cute!”
He turned, coming face to face with framed feline fascination embroidered in a rainbow wreath and twin tails twitching along her cheek. All of which told Lohnes that he had just picked up a new crewmember. “You’re lucky you like to nuzzle.”
“So are you.” Tal replied with a sly grin.
“How did you know that?” came the cat’s meow, much to the stunned silence of the humans.
Entry #2 for this week’s 100 Word Challenge. And judging on how… unusual this picture prompt was in the beginning, maybe the felines have more than meets the eye.
I hope you all enjoy!
