Winged Wolf

Looking at the world from the perspective of a pink stuffed... animal...

They picked me up and put me down a few times before the long floor was pulled up and I was incased in it. A cage of floor turned into walls, and soft crunching noises when I was moved.
I can't move, can't escape, can't run. I can only wait...
And wait I did... I waited until I was placed down again, somewhere warm. I could feel it even through the walls around me. And I waited...
Then a small sound, a muffled sound, a cry of joy came though and I was picked up, floor-walls and all.
That's when the astonishing happened, and the walls were torn away, revealing a gentle face full of wonder. "Oh Mummy, thank you!" The remains of my floor and walls prison was discarded and I was picked up by this...girl... who was smiling broadly at another, older woman, and then back at me before hugging me tightly, placing her cheek to mine. I felt, more than saw, hazel eyes close as the firm yet soft touch enveloped me and slowly and carefully looked around. It appears I might be staying here for a while...
"What are you going to call her?" The older woman asked and the girl moved her head to look at her. She removed me from her cheek then, and looked me over.
"Star," she stated firmly, "because of the stars on her leg."
"Paw," the older one corrected with a smile.
"I think that's a very nice name, Sweetie." A third person added as he walked in carrying three hot looking cups on a tray. "Do you want to bring Star and drink some hot cocoa with us?"
I was hugged again, and the girl nodded. "Come on Star." I caught a glimpse of the two older people smiling at each other as the girl and I headed to take a seat at the table. I guess I don't need to wait anymore...
