The Surprising Meal

Written by Isabella Thermes

The cat was staring at the fish in utter disbelief and confusion.
All he was expecting was another meal and he was very much looking forward to it.
Just like any other day.
But the fish balanced himself on his spine, smiled first and then opened his mouth to talk while lying next to a lemon slice, on the ceramic plate.
The fish was rather cheerful and eager to chat.
The cat thought that perhaps he was missing a very important detail: he was on that plate because he was food, and as such shouldn’t he be consumed?
The fish however, was such a remarkable storyteller that the cat, mesmerised, forgot about his hunger completely and sat enthralled by his captivating narration.
