Ever since last night things have been awkward between Kiku and I, both of us avoiding each other.
Or at least I was avoiding him.
I meandered down the hallway, no real destination in mind. Walking had kept me too focused on thinking about the dream and Kiku holding my hand...until now.
I let out a sigh, shaking my head. I don't want to think about anything troubling right now. I walked past the foyer when I heard a faint, nearly inaudible cry.
What was that?
Thinking I had perhaps imagined it I paused, standing still until I heard the noise again. Without thinking I opened the door.
A black kitten sat on the cement steps, meowing. It looked rather thin and was shaking.
Reader: You poor thing!
I got to my knees, scooping up the little kitten, affectionately petting it. It kept mewling.
Reader: What's wrong? Perhaps you're hungry.
Hm, I'm sure there's some food in the kitchen I could scrounge up for the little guy. The kitten let out a sneeze, entire body shaking. I scooped him (or her) and placed them inside my top, hoping I could help warm them.
Fast footsteps reached my ears and before I knew it there was a fuming Kiku standing behind me.
Kiku: What are you doing?
He demanded, lips in a tight scowl.
Reader: I wasn't doing-
Kiku: Trying to runaway?
He cut me off, not listening.
Kiku: I'll show you what happens to those who betray me.
He grabbed my arm, yanking me to my feet.
Reader: Kiku just listen to me!
He prepared to drag me back into the house when he froze at a soft meow. He slowly turned his head, eyes going down to my top where the kitten had poked its head out. It meowed again.
He hadn't moved an inch and his face was beet red. Finally he whipped his head around, facing away from me.
Kiku: If you keep that thing you're responsible for it; I won't help you!
Reader: Ah, I can keep it? Thanks so much Kiku!
I grinned, gently petting the black kitten's head.
Kiku: Whatever. Just keep it away from me.
He said, beginning to walk away.
Kiku: And don't forget to bring my cake!
He stomped off, a large smile on my face.
