She Made Him Nekojiru – A Story

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “An Odd Trio.” Today, you can write about whatever you what — but your post must include, in whatever role you see fit, a cat, a bowl of soup, and a beach towel.

He had been cheating on her for weeks and she only today suspected him. While he was at work, she managed to hack his Facebook account and the evidence was clear as day. She was beside herself as you could imagine but it went a little further than that. She prepared him some soup. When he got home she acted normally, kissing him on the cheek and sitting him down to enjoy his soup.

He had a favorite cat that he didn’t see. It usually meowed really loud when he came home. He sloughed it off and started slurping his soup. That was when she addressed him, “Honey, you’re getting it down your chin.” She dabbed it off with a local beach towel. That was when she explained where the cat went.

(Nekojiru is Japanese for Cat Soup)
