I am human, a guardian protector.

Once, there lived in secrecy, a feathery winged cat. This feline on some occasions since birth, had tendencies to fly away for days, leaving me its guardian to wonder if it would ever come back.

 

A Pegasus so cute in its birth, that the name "Sphinx" couldn't be ignored.

 

 "My tiger striped lioness, my winged feline companion, my now returned friend; tell me a story, sing to me of all the places you have traveled, where you have been," I asked into its omniferous almond eyes, brushing back its furry feathered wings.

 

It seemed as if its soul had passed forth from its gaze into my own as I, its guardian listened intently; then it finally spoke:

 

"I drank from the Nile's edge, with lapping sand paper tongue, as I saw in my reflection, something in the sky above. So, I flew up and ate it; as I sunk my teeth into its skin, its writhing torso explaining how it was just an angel, not a bird of feast. Though, it was much too late, my jaws already around its neck."

 

"I forgive you. I saved my last words for you; I love you."
