Drabble Challenge #9

Prompt: impressions

The light in her eyes, like blazing fire, frightens me. But – my curiosity moves my feet towards her without awareness.

Her fear brought compassion to my heart and I caressed her fur. Little did I know her fangs could break my skin and my blood would flow? But I sat beside her, my back against the wall.

They tore you away from your land. Destiny shall give you a name. I will love you. Learn from me to be almost human. Teach me the wildness of your soul, my tiger cub.

She leaves me precious things… impressions in my heart.
