FlufflesShe came to me three times a day, her bell jingling. She asked only for milk, adoration, and a temple in her honor. I complied. I bought furniture I did not need, using the cardboard Ikea boxes to build her grand vision.Fluffles by DeejaeHarper
When the milk began to displease her, I began to seek out the unworthy. I milked their throats. The pink liquid pleased the mistress, for she purred. When she purred, I did not fear her stinging claws. Hail the scratches of the fair one for she is love and despair.
Sometimes the mistress, her furry ears pulled back, would tell me in so many words that the people in my life were unworthy. I would bow to her wisdom and tell my family, my friends, concerned co-workers, and professionals that I could not speak with them ever again.

Josy hung up and tried to call again. This time a recorded voice whispered into her ear, "Today
