Found - from 29/01/06

When she woke the sun was shining through the wooden blinds and she could just about make out a noise, which she couldn't recall hearing before, coming from somewhere else in the flat. She lay there for a moment reliving the events of the night before.
'Was this the one?' she thought out loud, 'Could she have made another mistake?'
He seemed to have all the characteristics of the last one, but was definitely more loving and maybe, just maybe, a little more handsome.

She swung her legs over the edge of the bed and sat up, slowly. Her body was aching and she still felt tired, the events from the night before taking their toll. She couldn't remember the last time she felt so happy. After, what seemed, a life time of searching she had found him, and this time she wasn't going to lose him.

The last one had left, leaving no clue to where he was going. She had cried for days over him. Her heart felt heavy for weeks and she found herself thinking about him in the most strangest of places. Once she was in the queue at Tesco and the woman in front of her had just placed his favourite food on the belt. Tears had flowed down her face and the woman in front had turned and stared at her as if she had never seen anyone crying before. She didn't care, she missed him so much.

A loud bang brought her back to the present time. She threw on her dressing gown and headed for the kitchen. There she found one of the pans she had washed up the night before, on the floor. Next to the pan was the plate she had given him his supper on, now empty. He must have knocked it off, but where was he now? She turned and slowly walked towards the living room, trying not to make too much noise, she didn't want to scare him on his first morning in the flat.

Then she spotted him, sitting on the sofa, in the same place she usually sat. She went over to him and gently put her hand on his head, her fingers going through his hair, moving gradually down his back.
'So there you are' she softly whispered. 'Did you sleep well?'
He looked up at her, his green eyes full of love. The only sound in the room was him, purring loudly. She pick him up and placed him on her lap, it was all worth it, she thought. Finding you trapped in that old building, climbing over walls, breaking down doors, was all worth it now I have you.
