Bedtime.. the cozy bed I slept in during my Bali holiday.
Shampoo. Lather. Rinse.
Out from the warm shower, into a set of fresh pyjamas.
Another set of routine begins.
The painstaking skincare ritual ends and I flopped onto the soft bed.
A bedtime chat with Blueberry.. then, a quick game on my handphone.
Occasionally, I would daydream under the blankets in the dark.
Awhile later, the eyelids start to feel heavy.
Ahh, it is time to sleep.
Blueberry and I whisper our good nights..
.. and drifted into dreamland.
It was time for bed.
But he said, “No.. I don’t want to go to bed.”
“I want to play!” begged Kitty.
“How about a bed time story?” I asked.
“Okie. Could you read Puss in Boots? I like that story.”
Kitty purred with delight when I agreed.
… and so we read the story together..
When the story came to an end, I prompted him again..
“Time for bed, Sweetie.”
“How about another story? It’s been awhile since we read The Cat in a Hat.. “
What would you do if your kitty asked you?
