"OOOOOOOOOOOooooooowwwwwwwwww!" was the blood-curdling scream Mommy heard from three floors up. "HUN!!!! Come downstairs! And bring some Kleenex!" When Mom got down there she found Daddy with a bloody mouth, Miss Binks still sitting on his chest.
"What happened?!" she asked. "I was snorgling with Miss Binks and she bit me......." Mom gave Dad the Kleenex and then took Miss Binks in her arms to make sure she was okay. "Awww, Miss Binks, your eye is bulging. Did Dada scare you with his yell?" I'm pretty sure he did because Binky had quite the perturbed look on her face. "It's okay my girl......" She got smooches and a treat and Mommy put her on the floor. Then she went to tend to Daddy.
Binky came running over to me. "Binky, what happened?" I asked.
"Well, I was snorgling with Dada and I wanted to go back on the floor so I went to give him a little nip like I always do, but he turned his head really fast and it spooked me and the next thing I knew, he was screeching like a mad squirrel! Oh my goodness! It scared me!"
"Holy cow Binks! You sure must've gotten him good!"
"I didn't mean to! It was an accident!"
Mom and Dad went upstairs after that. It took a good hour for his lip to stop bleeding and he put lots of ice on it to keep the swelling down. He moaned for a good part of the evening but justifiably so. It was quite the gash...
Later in the night, after the lights were out and everyone was settled in for the night, Daddy sneaked downstairs to see Binky. He picked her up and they cuddled once more. "Dada, I am so sorry I bit your lip. I didn't mean to..." she said. "That's okay Miss Binks. I know, you are blind and sometimes fast and sudden movements catch you off guard. Dada will be sure to be more careful from now on." He held her on his chest, snorgling the side of her face. "You are my very special girl - you know that, right?" he whispered. "Yes Dada, and you are very special to me too." Miss Binks gave him some licks on the side of his nose. "I love you, Dada..."
"I love you too, my Binky Girl..."
