Salem looks at me funny, “Did you do something different to your fur? You look different.”
“No,” I stand up tall, “I’m taking this new course to boost my self-esteem. This is the new and improved Suki.” I stick out my chest, “More confident. More commanding. What do you think?”
“Well, you do look confident. I gotta be honest, it’s freaking me out a little. I hope this doesn’t upset the balance of the universe or anything. You know how I hate change.”
A few minutes later he elbows me. I look to the left and Aphrodite herself walks by.
Salem turns to me, “Did you just gulp?”
My face gets hot and I wave my paw at him, “Ergno, hee hee, no man, I was, I was just…shut up.”
“Oh, yeah,” he snickers, “the world is going to be just fine.”
