Alone, having sacrificed friends for the biggest rat.
Blind, alone, afraid.
The rat can no longer be seen.
It tortures her in her waking hours.
Teasing the cat with squeaks and bites.
everytime the cat yowls in pain
the silence lasts for short infinity
the rat nibbles again, then runs.
nothing more than a tiny, helpless meow.
then comes the glimmer
just too weak to live, not made for this cruel world
the cat, thought.
to her surprise came her saviour.
