The Sixth Day

Post by Hatching Phoenix » Thu Jun 03, 2010 3:09 am

He stood in the garden and looked around. Things were looking pretty good, He thought. A bit rushed, perhaps, but no one would notice. He heard a noise, and saw one of the cats, a great one with orange and black stripes, walking about proudly. Something hung loosely from its mouth.
"What have you got there, boy?" He asked, approaching the beast slowly. He got a better look. It had one of the animals. He hadn't designed them like that, he was sure. The blood was supposed to stay inside. It was Adam.
Great. Now He had to start over.

So THAT's where the expression about Adam's housecat comes from.
