This story is told from the point of view of a ‘haunt’. She is trapped in a limbo of homeless wandering, when she meets an orange cat and its human child.
The read the preceding text click here. The story continues with the following 8 sentences:
I rolled off the child and lay in the dirt, dazed, battered and bruised.
“Come Miss! Come!” Unbelievably I felt a tug on my hand. “He will come back, we must hide!”
She dragged me to the bushes and into the scrub, away from the railway line. I crawled and scrabbled in the dirt, finding stillness after an eternity of flight.
I woke to the child gently wiping my face with a grubby damp patch of her ragged dress.
