Jeremiah FF - english // The Cat

Happy birthday, mews1945

This little fic I have written some time ago and I want to post it today for you. I know, it's not one of your favorite fandoms, but I hope, you will like it a bit.

Titel: The Cat
Fandom: Jeremiah
Characters: Markus, Rose
Words: 190

revised story January 2016

Markus stared at the grey cat who just sneaked into his office.
"What's this," he murmured.

The door was pulled open entirely and a little girl stepped in. She reached for the animal, which cuddled up to her and purred softly. Markus pulled the face thoughtfully.
"You're Rose, Smith's daughter, aren't you?"

The little girl nodded but kept quiet. Maybe she was a bit shy.

"You need to bring this cat out of the Mountain. I guess, your dad has told you, that we can't have animals here."

"She won't be here for long," Rose whispered, clutching the cat closer to her chest.

"What do you mean?"

"She is old and weak, you know. She's going to die soon. But she shouldn't be alone when that happens."

Markus stared at her. It was rare that words failed him.
"Oh, well," he finally murmured.
"I guess we could make an exception this time!."

Rose smiled and turned to the door, the cat still on her arms. But at the doorway she stopped again.
"Please, Mister Markus, don't tell my Daddy. He likes her - and I don't want him to be sad."

Oh Mews, it's just a little gift, but it was fun to write it and I'm glad, that you like it.
Yes, Markus don't have a heart of stone!

OH my... This is so very touching, it simply makes me weep.

"Please, Mister Markus, don't tell my Daddy! He likes her - and I don't want him to be sad over her!"

That's soooo Rose ...
What a gorgeous gift, honey. *sniff*
What a beautiful cat ... *hugs you*

Yes, Rose is a clever, little girl. I love her!

Thank you - for reading the story and for hugging the cat, I think, she deserves it!

Thank you for reading. I'm glad you like it a bit!

Thank YOU - for reading!

That is so sad and precious...

Thank you! I'm glad, you like it a bit.
And I don't think that it's soo sad. Of course, the cat will die - but she has had a full life and she is not alone. This is comforting to know, isn't it?

This is so beautiful and moving, Prisca. What a lovely gift for Mews. *weeps*

Thank you for reading and commenting.

Yes it is, but I do not do death very well at all...
I have lost too many that are precious in my life,
and I have yet to find comfort for the emptiness...
Perhaps someday I will...

Of course, you are right. Every death is sad, because you have to say Goodbye forever.
But if I think of Jeremiah: so many people have to die too young, too lonesome - but the cat won't suffer this fate!

Oops! I missed seeing when you first posted this--there were soooo many posts on Mews's birthday!

I love that Markus allowed the cat to stay, and that Rose wanted to protect her father from the sorrow of its imminent death. She is so much her father's daughter.

Oh yes, she is. I love her for this. And I like writing about her. Kurdy and Rose are my favorite characters - besides Smith, of course!
