NaPoWriMo 7th Day

Prompt: scared

Spirits follow you, you told me
They follow you like they do your mother
She told you not to be scared
In turn, you told me not to be scared
I wasn't scared since I was with you
I trusted you completely
But the cats wouldn't leave the room
They walked to the doorway, looked, then sat down just inside the threshold
They watched me walk to the door
I felt like I couldn't go through either, so I sat back down beside you
I liked when you put your arm around me
You told me it would be okay
Just wait and they will leave when they are ready
It wasn't out of fondness, just familiarity
They had to get familiar with me too
Then they moved away and let me through
