#oneaday 16: short story Sunday

16 Jan

Today’s one a day blog post is brought to you from bed via a hangover. It is a short story. Short being the operative word.

Once upon a time, a girl lived in a big house by the sea. She lived there all by herself and her windows faced out into the bay of the small seaside town and she could see the waves from her bed. One day, she decided to take a walk along the cliff path to the nearby town just a few miles up the coast.

She put on her boots, coat and hat and strode out into the bracing sea air. A little way down the path, she heard a mewing noise. She looked down to see a tiny baby kitten following her. She said hello and the kitten carried on following her. He followed her all the way up the path to the town and then all the way home again.

The girl wondered if the kitten had his own home to go to, but night fell and he was still sat on the front door step, not going anywhere. The girl opened the door and the kitten poked his head into the hallway. He gingerly stepped up to where the girl sat and then jumped up onto her knee and curled into a ball, purring contentedly.

The kitten grew into a cat and the girl grew into a lady. Now they both lay in bed watching the sea together and the girl no longer lives alone.
