i go to the apartment, remembering that i had left my guitar. i pick the lock & continue into the room to grab my precious instrument, then see the cat crying. i look closer & realise that his bunny friend is very pale & doesn't appear to be breathing. i hurry over to the couch, bridging the gap in 3 steps. i give cpr, to no avail, then check for a pulse. even a weak one would allow a little hope. i look at the cat, tears in my eyes because i couldn't save the child. i grab my guitar & leave, growling softly.
