Write a short story of 150 words or less using the photo prompt:
The cats had roamed there since ancient times, their ancestors having known Cleopatra and even further back to such Goddesses as Aphrodite and Venus. They carried with them a knowing of the kindness of women and the destructive warrior nature of man.
Communicating by telepathy, a characteristic innate in their ancestry, they began to move almost imperceptibly closer toward the man on his bicycle. The cats had never understood how the strong animals man once rode into battle had become this contraption with two wheels. They also wondered why this man appeared to show no aggression. Thinking amongst themselves, they decided to let this one go, at least for now.
