I spotted her on my way home.
She was unwanted, filthy & lonely.
Damaged goods, as they say.
A group of men had gathered around her commenting, laughing.
I walked by wondering what her story was.
Who had abandoned her like this?
Somehow I couldn’t get her out of my mind.
I was loath to venture back to where the guys had gathered,
but I felt that she deserved better.
I braced myself, turned & headed back.
I walked boldly into the group & blurted out …
“I’ll take her with me if that’s ok.”
They stared at me … there were some mumblings.
I had to be quick.
I made a grab for her.
She resisted, but I was relentless.
Finally she succumbed to my will.
I got her home, took her straight to the shower & scrubbed her clean.
She lives with me now & with a bit of work she could have a great modelling career ahead of her.
Her debut photo shoot was a great success, she really was The Centre of Attention.
I’m sure we’ll be seeing a lot more of her in the very near future.
Catch up on today’s challenge here …
