'Who's my little angel?' You say. 'You, you, my little angel, you, with the white broad wings flapping in the wind.'
I shiver. Little angel, you say? 'Aye. Little. Tiny. Angelic. Angel.' Tiny little angel. For what do I do better than look after you? Isn't that what angels do? I imagine myself, floating along the sky, caring for you with eyes fiery as a wild cat, staring at whoever might want to hurt you.
Not an angel, though. Not at all. I shake with uncontained laughter, badly disguised joy and mischief glinting in my eyes. Not an angel. 'Not an angel? As if. You're pure.' You argue. I giggle. Pure? I'll teach you pure. I'll lick you clean of that glittering pixie dust, and you won't call me an angel again, cause I ain't no angel. I'm a kitty, and not a tame one.
'Aye, my angel. Whatever you say.'
