Three Line Tales 2 – Old Habits

The urge to stretch and scratch is so strong, it freezes her mid-step.

What to do? What to do?, she panics, mind scrambling to remember the fancy virtues she took great pains to learn to get here.

Courage, honesty, selflessness—all useful bargaining chips for a blue fairy to turn cats into full-blown ladies. Totally useless for navigating city streets in heels and persistent old habits.
