The little orange boy stopped.CHOICES by Anne Kolaczyk copyrighted February 5, 1998
Behind him, kitties were playing, chasing each other and wrestling in the warm sunshine.
It looked like so much fun, but in front of him, through the clear stillness of the pond's water, he could see his mommy.
And she was crying.
He pawed at the water, trying to get at her, and when that didn't work, he jumped into the shallow water. All that got him was wet and Mommy's image danced away in the ripples.
"Mommy!" he cried. "Is something wrong?" The little orange boy turned around.
