365 Days Writing Prompt Challenge: Day 335

335. Serendipity:

I had a list. I was very specific about what I wanted. I was not going to settle for anything less than that. 

When I saw him though, everything on that list went out the window. 

He was adorable; his orange hair, his sparkly blue eyes. 

I guess it’s what people call serendipity: that realisation that what you’ve stumbled upon is better than what you were looking for and usually totally unexpected. 

That pretty much summed up our meeting. 

I took one look at him, he took one look at me and walked straight over. 

I couldn’t help but smile as he stood there looking at me. 

“I’ll take him,” I’d said to the assistant. 

And that’s how I found my first cat, Tiger.
