Enthusiasm: Super Short Story #470

Super Short Story #470: Enthusiasm

The eager puppy saw the aloof kitten
and enthusiastically wanted to play,
to share a wonderful toy,
as he pranced around with it.

But the kitten thought he was too eager
and remained aloof…
somewhat flattered, annoyed and uncertain,
till the puppy almost lost his puppy-natured enthusiasm.

He then bumped into other eager puppies,
to be re-infected by their enthusiasm to play with them,
while the kitten looked on,
somewhat disappointed, annoyed and still uncertain.
