|There it was!
I don't know just how long I had sat here waiting for it to appear, but it seemed like hours.
I don't really suppose that it had been, it just felt like it.
Every day I waited. Sometimes it would appear, sometimes not, but I had the feeling that this was going to be the night when I finally had it in my grip.
I'd hungered over it since the first time I had lain eyes on it.
That was about six weeks ago.
Nearly every day it would appear, and it would stare at me coldly, without the least interest, or so it seemed to me.
But I was determined to have it.
Some others had tried, but eventually they had all given in, but not me.
I was going to get it, come hell or high water.
At long last it came that little bit closer, but not close enough yet.
I called to it, a low gentle call from the back of my throat.
Surely it would investigate that strange attractive sound, but no, it turned and went back the way it had came.
I was getting desperate to make contact with it, so I very slowly, as not to alarm it, walked toward it.
For a brief moment it looked up into my amber eyes, and as though reading my intent, it made one mad dash for it's home.
I raced after it, howling with rage, but, it was no use.
It had made it to the safety of it's home and I was left, as usual, swishing my tail in frustration. Damned mice!
Keep it simple ... Keep it interesting.
