Pet Name: Surprise
There was a loud bang, followed by another and a high pitched whelp as a golden Aisha tumbled down the steps and landed straight on her stomach with a thud.
”Ouff— oh, hello there!”
A smile that showed how awkward of an encounter this was, she sat up and cleared her throat.
”Sorry for that— I was preparing a surprise party for a friend but it seems the streamers got the best of me.” She made a gesture towards the dangling mess. ”Streamers one, me, zero.”
She scratched herself behind the ear and shook her head, shaking the sudden fall off. When she had, she turned her paw up, willing to shake.
”I’m Surprise by the way, Surprise the Gold Aisha, pleasure to meet you!”
While taking her offer, her eyes studied one from top to bottom, a slight tilt of her head.
”Say, you’re far much taller than me, I could really appreciate some help with putting those beautiful but sneaky streamers up!”
Before being able to answer her, she was already on her hind legs pushing one indoors.
”While you’re on it, I’ll do the balloons, there cannot be a party without balloons, don’t you agree?”
This is when one noticed the two strings attached to her tail, and on each end of them, there was a pair of balloons, one was pink and one was blue and followed her wherever she went.
”Oh, these?” She said and giggled, ”I always have balloons around, they make me happy and people who seem them to smile. It’s a nice, I like when I can make people smile. It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy.” A small laughter came from her and she added, ”When I’m sad, I draw faces on them, it always lightens my mood.”
A pause and she frowned.
”Should I put confetti in a few and pop them later on... that could be fun? What do you think?”
She filled up the balloons and let them float up to the ceiling, one-by-one and became a good compliment to the streamers that finally got onto place after some work.
”I’ve always loved everything that has to do with laughter, happiness, gifts, making people happy and—” she giggled, ”Surprised. Cheesy, I know, because that’s my name, Surprise. But I already told you that.”
With a broad smile, Surprise studied the room, bouncing on the spot.
”This. Looks. Amazing! Thank you so much for your help, you’re a life-saver, my friend will be so delighted! I know she will!” Suddenly she made a noise and ran off, and from afar she yelled, ”Don’t do anywhere, I’ll be right back!”
And within a minute, she came back, handing over a well wrapped gift box, bow and all.
”A small thanks for helping me, I hope we’ll meet again someday!”
Waving good-bye, on the way home when opening the box, there was a piece of cake and an envelope containing an invitation - to her next party.
'Until we meet again, say, next Friday at six pm?'
