We have shared numerous examples before of Cheoah’s great skills as an instigator. Typhoon is also a master instigator, but he always gets caught because he looks so joyously happy that he has caused trouble. Not guilty – happy. Guilt would imply a shred of remorse.
Cheoah also has no guilt over stirring up trouble, but she has mastered the innocent look while she is creating trouble.
The house was quiet, dogs were napping, and Cheoah was looking for entertainment. But how do you stir up excitement and look innocent at the same time? This takes a great deal of skill and patience to be a trouble maker and not get blamed for it.
Start slowly and make it look like you are being sweet. Keep quiet and just wait until you get the reaction that you know is coming.
Anyone with siblings in the house knows the “She’s touching me” game. Now for the most important part. Look totally innocent. Sweet, innocent, little ol’ me.
