It takes so much effort to get close to someone. To navigate those finely woven threads of doubt and trust. But sometimes… sometimes you need someone else.

There’s a lot I could say about this sequence, which is the literal and symbolic conclusion of this first arc. But instead I want to point out the cat’s body language. A slightly curved, tall tailed cat is a happy, affectionate, curious cat.

I predict the cat will want back outside in about five minutes.
