I went to the library for a novel featuring cats. The only one I found wasn’t of much interest to me.
“Why aren’t there more?” I asked the grim-faced librarian.
She stared at me over her wire-framed spectacles but said nothing. I took a step back.
“I started to ask again. “Why…”
“I heard you the first time” she hissed, her menacing gaze giving me goose-bumps.
“I’m s-s-s-sorry”, I stuttered.
“Because” she whispered, placing her pen on the desk.
“Because?” I nervously asked, immediately wishing I hadn’t.
“Because…” she growled,
I looked for the door.
“…cats, only have one tail”.
