Aaah, Saturday! With any luck (and more motivation than I’m presently feeling) I’ll be working on clearing out the Room of Doom later. Tomorrow will be movie viewing (The Prestige) and more moving stuff around from room to room. For now though, I’m drinking my tea and bringing you, Dear Reader, another installment of…
Guardians: The Phantom Kitty Cat
In the heart of the city (Which city? Oh, you’ll have to find that out for yourself) is an old building. It is not abandoned, but it probably should be. Down in the basement (or is it up in the attic?) is a door that is always locked…except when it isn’t locked. If you open the door, you’ll see a small room with no windows or furnishings. On the opposite side of the room is a door and sitting in front of that door is a small cat.
The Phantom Kitty Cat appears differently for each person who sees it. Some may see a Siamese, while others might see a Tabby or a Persian or a Calico. Regardless of the way it looks to you, it will always be small for a cat and be semi-transparent. It will stare at you for a moment and then ask you a question.
What the question is depends upon who you are, what you do for a living and what your reasons are for wanting to go through the door that the cat is guarding. Depending upon your answer, the cat may ask more questions…or let you pass through the door…or tell you to leave…or kick your ass. Oddly, the cat never kills anyone.
