Cacti and Teasing

Daphne gently waved her hand over the cactus plants that were in her window sill. The prickly plants bloomed bright yellow, red, and pink flowers, instantly. The tall brunette smiled down at the blooms, before she moved on to the other plants that grew all over her apartment.

"Hathor, be careful," Daphne called out to her familiar as she caught sight of her Russian Blue cat in the sill, near the newly bloomed cacti.

The blue-grey cat meowed in response, as she met Daphne's grey-lilac eyes. Hathor returned her attention back to the prickly plants.

"You know, one of these days, she's going to end up getting stabbed in the nose," Isis, Daphne's roommate and best friend, commented as she walked into the living area of their shared apartment.

Daphne laughed at Isis' comment, "You're not wrong, but hopefully she won't ever actually stick her nose into the cacti.

"Hopefully," Isis said, but her voice was full of doubt as she glanced at Hathor with a raised eyebrow.

"So, do you want anything before you head to class?" Daphne asked as she moved towards the kitchen.

"Daph, I can feed myself," Hathor reminded her friend as she made her way to the cabinet that held her food. She grabbed a few cereal bars, and opened the fridge to pull out a chocolate muffin. "Besides, you have a meeting with Enver later. So, go get ready."
