Once Upon A Time
She sits in the corner, a cat-like bitch, filing her nails and looks far too smug.

With a look of complete exasperation, I try to engage her in conversation. "Look, without you, I haven't written a short story in..." I look at the dates on my files, "shit, the last thing of any significance I wrote was just an angsty little poem over a year ago. This is crazy. What's the deal. I thought we were a team?" The smug look on her face caused me to slam down my coffee mug. "You are sheer frustration."

"You are working on a book, aren't you?" Her eyes twinkle.

"Look, I miss writing these short stories. I don't want to stop yet. They get me in the mood to write more. They are great ways to express myself. But I need some inspiration. I need that flame, that fire...that passion. You know what I'm asking for, why won't you throw me a bone here?"

"You have a book to write."

"Seriously, I'm working on the book, didn't I just outline 15 chapters? We both know that I need certain things in my life to be able to write those short stories. I lost my happy place. I've had that happy place for nearly 11 years! I got so much inspiration from my happy place. I'd go there when life got too intense. I'd lose myself in my happy place whenever I had the opportunity and now it's gone. I know you've had a hand in getting rid of it. What gives?"

She levels a look at me, tiring of the conversation.

"No, really...you keep taking away the things that provided the passion for me. How can I possibly write..." I pause, something begins to click in my head.

Her feline smile widens as her eyes narrow.

"You bitch...you've taken away all of my distractions, haven't you?"

"You have a book to write."

Bloody hell. "You don't think you could have made it a little more obvious any sooner, could you?"

"Would it have worked?"

"Don't expect a dedication, shrew."
