The Lion and the Cat

Lion licking his lips

A cat once pursued a lion.

“What do you want, little one?”

“To be loved by you.”

“Ah,” said the lion, “Excellent.” And he ate her up, whiskers and all, with great delight.

    Perfect and scrumptious! The lion did exactly what was asked. He loved the cat, a little too much? Then probably licked his lips!

    I thought my comment went through. Well…if you see two comments, toss one. Anyway, this was scrumptious! I lived it. Well written. BTW, I followed the discusion on which definition was required, but this one is classic. How could it not qualify?
