Early in the morning, at 9am (ok not so early lahz:p), I was happily awaiting the arrival of my bus to go to school when i heard a dreaded, yet familiar sound.
I slowly turned my head so as not to alert the enemy of my presence. Lo and behold. It was there, in all its patchy white-brown furry glory. The huge thing turned its head and this time round, its clear glassy pair of eyes stared at me with zen-like calm.
This time its purr was longer and somewhat more measured. I tried to look calm but I would believe I failed cos’ a couple of little pesky kids sniggered with one actually saying “Ta Pa!” (Mandarin for: she’s scared!)
I don’t know if i was imagining things but it suddenly seemed as though its fur was bristling and was standing on ends. It took two steps forward. I ran off.
In the end, I walked 15 minutes in the blazing hot sun to the next bus stop, all in a bid to avoid antagonizing the adversary.
Cat: 1. Serendipity: 0. Damn.
PS: I am not a coward ok. The cat was HUMONGOUS- at least 2 inches longer and er..1 kg heavier than the average.
