'Good-bye Pierre' - Mrs. Jenny Matlock's Saturday Centus Week 96

Jenny Matlock

Welcome to Mrs.Jenny Matlock's Saturday Centus, Week 96. SC is a writing challenge in which participants are asked to write a text to a given prompt using only 100 words or less plus the prompt. This week's prompt is:
Saying goodbye was harder than she thought... .
Scroll down past my text to read Mrs. Matlock's instructions.
Here is my text:


'Hope they won't have him.'
'But Melissa, we've already talked about having five cats here.'
Surprisingly, the family wanted the nine-month-old tuxedo kitten. He could roam their farm and still keep warm in their son's bedroom.
Melissa had thought that Pierre was the one she liked least. But now that he was about to leave, he had become attractive.
'Give Pierre a hug,' said her mother handing her the cat. Pierre was warm to hold and purred in her ear. She loved him.
'It's time.'
Teary-eyed, Melissa handed over the
kitten to its new owners. Saying goodbye was harder than she thought.
