The gift.
 
Quietly he crept out into the open field, looking every which way to ensure he was not seen. He shivered in the cool morning breeze sniffing the air for any sign of predators. Swiftly he crossed the open space reaching the opposite side of the field and the safety of the hedge. There he paused for a moment still keeping a keen awareness of his surroundings.
The only sound was the soft swishing of the breeze in the treetops above him, nothing moved it was strangely quiet too quiet he thought. Nervously he peeped out from the safety of the hedge bottom.He ran, down the length of the hedge reaching the wide road he hesitated, watching for a break in the passing traffic, with the speed of a cheetah he sped across the road, he rested a while waiting for his heartbeat to return to normal, at his feet he dropped the precious treasure he carried, ever alert for unwanted company. He would soon be home safe and happy, a warm welcome waiting for his return. Picking up his treasure he set off on the last leg of his journey. He could see his home giving him the incentive he needed to carry on.
Through the door he rushed, he looked up at his mistress placed the treasure at her feet feeling very pleased with himself. His mistress turned at the sound of him entering the room, she gave a gasp as she noticed the gift in front of her, ‘’oh no how many more mice are you going to bring home’’ she said as he rubbed himself around her ankles purring with pleasure, he loved his mistress and brought her a gift as often as possible.
