Entirely on her own terms, of course.
I dare say no words she could have uttered would have affected me so much, then, as her calling me her child. I hid my tears in the bedclothes, and pressed her from me with my hand, when she would have raised me up.
"Thank you, Mister Bond," said the tinkling voice. "I hope you'll enjoy…"
"Oh Pussy, my Pussy, this is the last meal you'll get."
