Hey, Megan!”

 

Megan could have sworn that the cat by her feet had just said, “Hello!” It was nonsense, of course. The cat was just that – a normal domestic cat. Okay, it had smokey grey fur and yellow eyes but it was still just your every-day well-fed, well-groomed house cat.

 

Megan stared out from the bench across the park. She was still stinging from the deception of her boyfriend and her best friend. She knew she had to try to be reasonable but that was not how she felt. If they’d have gone sneaking off behind her back she could not have felt any worse. But no, they had actually sought her out, tried to explain. They had more-or-less asked her permission.

 

The cat jumped up on to the bench next to Megan and looked where she was looking. There was nothing of interest to be seen so the cat turned its attention to the girl. It pressed it’s body against her leg and Megan found herself idly stroking it’s fur. The purr began softly but soon became a deep rumble of contentment. It rested its chin on her lap and looked up into her face.

 

And Megan began to feel better. Some of the tension that had been building began to dissipate and she started to feel very slightly drowsy. Her eyes began to feel heavy, began to close. Maybe for a while they both dozed off.....

 

Hey, Megan. Forget them. You can do so much better.”

 

It was you!” Megan said, incredulously. “You can talk! But how? And how do you know my name?” Was this happening or still some kind of a dream?

 

That’s for me to know and you to wonder about.” The cat stood and stretched in the way that only cats can and sprang to the ground. With a shake of a paw and a flick of its tail it casually sauntered away, knowing that that was another job well done! Before disappearing from view it turned and winked an eye.

 

And Megan, well she still felt bad, still felt betrayed but she knew it was not meant to be between her and him. In time, maybe she would forgive her friend for, in some ways, she had done Megan a favor by pointing out what she herself had been too blind to see. But she would find the right ‘someone’.........eventually.
