She’d been following me around for awhile now. In the beginning I didn’t mind. It was nice to think that somebody liked me enough to be with me all the time. Then again, I’m also a very independent person and so I knew that eventually it would annoy me and I’d have to say something.
The day arrived when I finally cracked.
“Oh, for fuck’s sake, STOP following me!” I yelled in frustration. “Don’t you have anything better to do?!”
I saw her face look up at me in adoration and for a minute I wavered. How could I be so callous?
She rubbed herself against my legs and let out a loud meow.
Yep, my little Shadow certainly knew she had me wrapped around her little finger.
