An Old Friend Returns


I looked up from my bed on the window ledge to see Ginger Cat smiling up at me.

I was shocked, I was not expecting to see him sitting there when I first went to sleep. I've been wanting to speak to him about something I saw in the Time Consciousness for quiet a while but I;ve never managed to catch him when he was around.

"Hello." I replied not sure what to say.

"I heard about George this morning and wanted to come and pay my respects to Mogsie and Twizzle. George was a good egg, I really liked him, it's very sad."

I nodded, a little bit of water filmed itself across my eye but didn't form into a droplet.

"Yes it is and he was." I looked down in thought. "Apart from River he was my best friend around here. So kind."

Ginger Cat nodded.

"And how you doing?"

"Yeah I'm OK, just sad."

Ginger Cat smiled at me. "I didn't mean how are you about George. I meant how are YOU!"

My eyebrows joined in an upwards arch, and my head cocked itself slightly to one side as I tried to work out what he meant.

Ginger Cat smiled at me as he saw my reaction.

"I think we should have a bit of a chat, you know," he nodded, "things in common. experiences in common." Then he smiled. "I'll be in touch over the next couple of day, we can have a good old talk then."

I nodded, mouth slightly open. 

"Yes...yes I think that would be nice."

Ginger Cat smiled a kindly smile again.

"Yes looking forward to it." He started to walk off and if guessing what was on my mind he then turned his head back towards me. "Yes, very much looking forward to us talking, I might be able to help you with your plans!"
