Real Life
Theme: Perfection

[blatant lack of title]

"Buddy! Calm down. You are crazy!" She grabbed his face in her hands and pressed her forehead into the space between his large brown eyes. "It's just a thunderstorm, it's not going to hurt you."
Buddy whimpered softly in return, trembling and pawing nervously at her. Pulling away, she draped her arm over his side, hugging him close to her. They sat huddled together on the couch, the golden retriever now curled up in a shivering lump.

The storm was raging outside, she could see it clearly through her window. The thunder, it was so frequent, it never stopped. All she could do was sit and stare at it all through a pane of glass.

There wasn't much she could do while the storm went on. She had work to get done around the house, so much work. There was going to be company tonight, she had things she needed to do.
Buddy, however wouldn't let her out of his sight, or even out of reach of his paw. She'd already tried getting up to find a blanket, but the dog had thrown himself onto her lap. "Oh, are you protecting me, now?" She laughed softly, shifting him to the side and burying her fingers into his layers of fur.

"You've got me stuck here, waiting this storm out, I guess," She shrugged, more than content watching out the window and absentmindedly running her hand down Buddy's side.

"Buddy, you do know you're my buddy, right? You're my perfect buddy."

It was true.

He wasn't the perfect dog, though. He had missing toes from a birth defect and walked with a noticeable limp everywhere he went. He was a horrible guard dog, he was just so friendly to anyone. And he was a big baby when it came to thunderstorms.

But he really was the perfect dog for her. She wasn't as young as she used to be, the arthritis in her bones would have made it hard to keep up with a more energetic dog. She was a recent empty nester, the last of her children gone off to college. And since her husband was still part of the workforce, the days alone in the house could be lonely ones.

She took a deep breath, and made herself enjoy this pause in her day and murmured to her companion beside her, "You're a good boy, Buddy."

Yeah, my school's a bit wahcko. biggrin.gif We're the first that I know of to hold homecoming this year.

Don't worry, Mang. I'm sure B6 hasn't forgotten about you. Besides, you still have more posts than me.

Oh, and homecoming is when a lot of grads come back for a football game and all, then there's a dance, and stuff. I'm honestly not too keen on the details myself.
