I've got to tell you something
This phenomenon, I had to put it in a song
And it goes like
Whoa, amber is the color of your energy
Whoa, shades of gold displayed naturally..." - 311, "Amber"
Hi, this is Felicity. For some reason I woke up really early this morning, and I couldn't get back to sleep. I decided to make a cup of tea and sit out on the porch. The sun was already up, but it was low in the sky, and the birds were starting to sing.
I saw a cat in the neighbours' yard. It was chasing the birds, but more playfully... not like to really catch and eat them. More like teasing them. I found it odd because our neighbours don't have any pets as far as we know. We've been in their house on a pretty much daily basis and there was never a cat.
The cat also looked kind of strange. It was really big for a domestic cat! It wasn't fat, though, it was sleek and muscular. It also had lovely amber fur, almost like a tiny lion. What a beautiful cat!
I watched for awhile, then the wind shifted and the cat caught a whiff of me. It got scared, and ran under their deck. As it was going, though, it glanced up at me. The cat had amber eyes.
Eyes I recognized.
The same eyes as our neighbour, Summer.
I thought it was kind of weird, and not really thinking about it, I muttered "Summer" under my breath. The cat tilted its head and looked at me, like I'd called its name. Then it crossed under the deck, climbed the fence, and circled toward the street.
I know it sounds like I'm making a big deal out of nothing, but it kind of unsettled me. I figured I was just making up a resemblance. All day, though, Summer wouldn't meet my eyes. She was acting really embarrassed, like I'd stumbled onto something she considered private. As much as possible, she avoided me. That's not like her.
Then after awhile, Maia made a comment about how she'd gotten up too early for a vacation day... and without thinking, Summer commented, "Felicity was up even earlier than you." How did she know that? I didn't see anyone awake except the amber-eyed cat.
Our life was so ordinary till recently. Now there are vampires and secret powers and... could Summer be some kind of were-cat?
