Hello again, Weekend Writing Warriors! This is my next 9-sentence-snippet in my latest short story.

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. After an encounter with the child’s abusive father the trio escape into the nearby wilds.

The child’s eyes fluttered open, and the cat stirred between us. She smiled.
“Hello, Miss! I told you, Kitty, that she would be just fine!” The last was said in a mock stern tone. The cat stretched and yawned, nestled happily between our bodies.
As she examined my face, she took on a sweetly solemn expression.
“You are that Lady, aren’t you Miss?”
She smiled at my incomprehension, “Never mind Miss, we will show you!”
