Several years ago I became the only person in my family; I lost my mother when I was very young to cancer. It was so long ago that I didn't really understand the concept of death so I was confused at first. Then by the time I was old enough to understand I had pretty much forgotten her so I was never sad until I was hit by the next fatality.
My father was in the army and was consequently sent to Iraq to fight in the war that was going on at the time. I was only fifteen when he left, he wrote often but it was rare when I could speak to him on the phone or on the computer. Eventually I didn't hear from him for a few days, at first I just thought that he was too busy but then I received a letter saying that he had been killed in action. To start with I didn't believe it but after tearless sadness I just had to accept it and move on.
I continued to finish school then started work, alone. My first job was a fairly decent job at a local garage but then my boss s
A kitsune friendship Day 5When I woke up I saw that I was in a hospital bed, groaning I looked around and saw Malachi and Sapphire by my side, Malachi was gently stroking my hand with her paw. "What happened?" I asked as I was still dazed. "You were stabbed by Harry yesterday, remember? You were unconscious all night and all morning" she said. "The nurse says you will be ok by this evening" Sapphire added.A kitsune friendship Day 5 in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
"Are you two ok?" I asked as I sat up.
"We are both fine" Malachi said before adding "I think Sapphire has something to say to you"
"What is it you want to say?" I asked her.
"I just want to say, thank you" she said humbly. "You saved my life and kept your promise. I will never have to worry about Harry again thanks to you"
"You're welcome I guess" she then leant forwards and hugged me tightly. "Ok you're very welcome" I said as I pushed her away, my wound was throbbing badly. "Malachi? I said.
"Yes?" she replied.
"I need to ask, what happened to me yesterday?" I said to her.
"What do you mean?" she asked.
A kitsune friendship Day 1I woke up in the morning to see Malachi lying next to me, her eyes closed and a light purring sound as she was breathing in. We decided to buy a double bed and sleep together from now on; she seems to be more comfortable when she knows she is always close to the one she loves. I did not want to disturb her so I just lay there watching her sleep, she always looks so peaceful in her slumber.A kitsune friendship Day 1 in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Several minutes later she stopped purring and her crystal blue eyes started to flicker open. She looked at me and smiled softly.
"Good morning" she said quietly. "How did you sleep?"
"Beautifully" I replied.
She sat up and reached over to lightly kiss me on the forehead before pushing back the sheets and standing up. I then did the same, pulling back the curtains it was a wonderful crisp frosty morning outside. Malachi took her dark purple gauntlets and slipped them on while I got myself dressed ready for the day ahead of us.
Leaving the bedroom I saw Malachi doing her usual morning stretches on the

On the porch, she felt safer. The warm light high on the wall, next to the rocking chair that was cradling her seemed to tell her so, with its golden reassurance.
Imustnotthinkthat, she repeated in her head, pressing her eyelids shut. Daddy will be good, hepromisedhepromised. She'll be all right.
She hugged her legs as a scream and a bark came from inside the house, making her flinch. Daddy?
"Daddy?" she called out, already forgetting that he had asked her not to make noise. The silence extended until she could no longer stand it. She stepped down from the rocking chair and went inside the house, walking slowly, her steps and breath on a single beat.
The living room door swung open, her daddy coming out of it and hurrying to close it back with a gasp once he saw her; he didn't want her to see, even she understood that. He's scared. "Daddy, are you okay?"
He sighed. "Yes, sweetie, I'm fine."
"But - but I heard you scream..."

The strange feeling came over the tigress Penumbra once again. Her paws tingled, her charcoal hair rose as if electrified, and her body felt faintly as if it were being constricted by the air around her. She flicked her ears in irritation, but she was too used to the phenomenon to express actual alarm. She didn't even bother to raise her head off of her single broad foreleg. The sensation would pass, as it always did, and she paid little mind to it.
It was the water leaking from the rusted pipe above her head that caught her interest, though. She had been absent-mindedly watching the pure water fall, drop by drop, from the peripherals of her vision. Now the rhythmic, predictable dripping slowed until it stopped. Then, in defiance of every law of fluid dynamics that Penumbra knew, the drops of water began to rise from the floor and slip back into the pipe. Penumbra stiffened and swivelled her head to watch.
