under arrest

” People can only meet you as deeply as they have met themselves.” said John and sprinted off to take a slash…


I stole a furtive glance at Tommy. I’ll wager his woofing would hardly score in the WordPress popularity stakes as John’s quote would undoubtedly do. I surely didn’t want to draw his attention anyway.

Last time the gatekeeper in a blue dress threw him out of the gate while trying to get rid of the riff-raff. Poor baby!

But Tommy lept by me on the sofa, wagging his tail and started licking my cheeks. John was right, I surmised. I placed my hand over his glistening ebony back and put him under my arrest.

Maybe he was whispering that your appetite for proving anything has never been my training or I may have heard it wrong but I truly hope one day he will begin to contemplate the need to assert himself. The flawed one can be used as Stepney by then.
