Loyalty #2


I lick his face some more. He doesn't wake up and smile today. What's wrong with my human? Jack pulls me off of Tom.
-"Tom isn't going to wake up, boy." My fur becomes wet with Jack's tears as he buries his face in my coat. I struggle out of Jack's arms and jump onto Tom's chest. I lie down and wait for Tom's eyes to open and smile at me.
-"No, boy! You don't understand! He's dead!" This time, it's Molly, Tom's sister. "He's not coming back!" She crumples to the floor, still holding me and hugging me close.
