I once had an owner.
His name was Sasuke.
He picked me from a litter of six.
I was the runt.
He made me strong.
He gave me a home.
He gave me love.
I loved him for that.
I loved him for just that.
Him being himself.
When I was older and a little bit of trouble entered me,
Sasuke decided I needed a collar - to calm my wildness.
I behaved. If only for a bit.
He still loved me - maybe even more so for that wild streak.
On my birthday, he gave me that collar.
Brown and soft the collar was.
Shiny and red the tag was.
"Property of Sasu-kitty" the tag read.
I followed him around, loving him to no end.
One day, Sasuke and I fought.
Words were said. Mean words.
If I could take it back, I would!
If I could reverse time, I would!
The next few days, Sasuke changed.
He became cold and aloof, distant.
I wanted to know, what he was thinking.
He told me.
"Naru-fox, I've found a new love."
My heart was broken.
I thought I was the only one to make him smile like that.
