Compared To The Ideal

After another scolding, of being asked, again, why she couldn’t be just a little more responsible, attentive, respectful, just a bit more like her older sister, and after her parents had left the living room to discuss the situation in private, in their bedroom, Kitten would take great pleasure in giving the finger to her sister’s framed portrait, centered on the fireplace mantle.

Her older sister; so wonderful, so pretty, so friendly, helpful and fun.

She ran away three years ago, but her parents acted as if she’d only popped out to the store and would be back any minute.
