In Loving Memory
Romeo had curled up to sleep that afternoon. He awoke and the world was very different. He sat up, stretched and yawned, licked his paws and preened his whiskers.
He looked around in the soft, warm light of the day and noticed another two cats watching him, love in their eyes. “Gizmo, Teko? Is that really you. I haven’t seen you for so many years. I missed you when you went away.”
“We’ve been here waiting,” said Gizmo.
“Come,” said Teko, “Let’s go and chase butterflies.”
The three old friends raced happily across the Asphodel Meadows, together again at last.
