I wasn't Dr. Ji-Ji's only visitor though. A small girl with auburn hair sat on the floor playing with a doll."Hello, Kitty!" I bent down to pat her head.She twisted her head to grin up at me. "Alice!"I squatted down. "Is that the doll you got for your birthday?"She nodded vigorously."What's her name?""Kat. Like me.""What a pretty name for a doll. And it does look just like you." I patted the doll's head.Kitty beamed. "Mommy said she'll get me another one for Christmas," she announced. "And I'm gonna name her Ali. Like you!""Wow, I'll have a doll name after me. I can't wait to see her. Will you show her to me as soon as you get her? And then we could play together!"Kitty bounced up and down and nodded. "I'll show her to you first," she paused, "After mommy and daddy and Ji-Ji.""It's a promise then." I held out my pinkie and she twisted her own around mine."A promise." She let go, then turned back to playing with her doll."Kitty, can you tell me where Ji-Ji is? I wanted to ask him a question.""He's back there." She waved her hand vaguely behind her."Thanks, Kitty." I stood up and patted her once more on the head. Back there probably meant his office. She sure is cute. I hid my smile so Kitty wouldn’t see it. Little kids were so adorable and innocent. Playing with them was always a relief from having to deal with conniving, deceitful adults.
Until next time!
