Zlaikhah's eyes welled up again as she thought of Fluffy....
Fluffy had been her hand servant for years, dressing up her antennas daily and waxing her exoskeleton to a shiny sheen to the envy of khunfisanas society.
Fluffy's friendship with Mildred was disturbing Zlaikhah ever since it started affecting the quality of her work. The only reason her mandible was flawless was because she kept repeating instructions to Fluffy. These days Zlaikhah's exoskeleton wasn't shining as brightly as it did of days past. Not only did she feel neglected from Isaak's inattention, but Fluffy's notable lack of concern over her work made Zlaikhah feel truly invisible to the world.
"Mmimmi, I feel that you're my only friend. Nobody pays attention to me anymore. What charms does Abdallah have that I don't? Why is Mildred distracting Fluffy away from me? Have I become as insignificant and undesired as last season's handbag?"
