Writing Spark #73

A sparkling burning firework.

Here is a writing prompt to do with what you will:

An animal has been following you for your whole life. A wild creature that you have glimpsed from time to time: out of your bedroom window when you were small; through the trees that one time you were walking through the woods alone; standing in your street one night when you were out late; reflected on a window when you were deep in a city.

Always the same animal, always with the same sense of calm around it, though it seemed to turn up at the most chaotic times for you. 

By the time you’re an adult, you’re sure your animal must have died of old age. It has been a while since you last saw it, after all. Then there is a noise one night and you open the door to find it standing right outside. The two of you are finally face to face.
