Ever had moments where life went against what you planned? Yeah, you had and hear was another one. As you opened your eyes from impact you heard behind you a laugh that could only come from Francis as you stared into red eyes. Red eyes that shined brighter than any time before with joy, glee, and affection. Realizing that you were laying on top of Gilbert you sprang away, but before you could run off you felt someone bite at your scruff, holding you still as you hissed. A scent of tomatoes filled your senses and you knew it was Antonio who had grabbed you.
Your (eye color) eyes narrowed as you became frustrated at the fact that you were caught when you had tried desperately to keep away so you wouldnt influence Gilbert anymore than you already had. As Antonio dragged you back towards Gilbert you heard Francis mumble to himself, Ohonhonhon~ She really is a beauté, I bet shed be even more beautiful if er fur was groomed. Oh, Id be more zhan appy to~ Apparently you werent the only to hear Francis because Gilbert growled at him furiously as you sent a glare.
Francis backed off a little but you could still see the interest in his eyes, so as Antonio placed you in front of Gilbert you gave a stern look at the French cat, warning him. Gilbert, ignoring the fact that your attention was at Francis, pounced on you right when Antonio released you, ____! You dont know how much Ive missed you! Vhyd you leave? Vait, I dont care, Im just happy youre here! He nuzzled into your (fur color) fur as you laid underneath him, uncomfortable with the position, especially when Francis was looking like he wanted to join in.
Alright, Gilbert, if you please get off, I dont like this position. Your voice firm and not the least bit embarrassed as you spoke, when Gilbert looked at you with confusion he understood what you meant by position and a heat came to his muzzle as he stumbled backwards. Antonio laughed and patted Gilbert on the shoulder with his tail as Francis circled around you, admiring your features as you sent another glare. Gilbert was at the moment too embarrassed to actually notice what Francis was doing.
Ah, zhe petit chéris voice is so arsh but it still sounds beautiful. You should speak in a more graceful way; speak as zhough your voice is sweet bells. Why are you so stiff and cruel, chéri? Did someone not ave zheir beauty sleep? Zhat could explain why your fur is so dirty. He was making fun of you, yet at the same time admiring you, and you didnt really like it. If hes going to continue acting like this around you, you were going to treat him as a threat. Besides, he was turning your calm exterior into a weapon of anger.
You instantly stood up and jerk forward, as if to intimidate him, and it worked as he moved back as you snarled, You should keep quiet, you dont understand the life of a stray, do you? You shouldnt make fun of me, you weakling, you wouldnt even be able to survive in the wild for a day. The other strays out there would rip you to shreds, out there you cant find any mercy, its just live or die. And I could rip you to shreds because in all out honesty your annoying me with your perverted nature and idiotic comments. You lowered yourself into a hunter position, a crouch, and you moved forward as you threatened him causing him to panic and run behind Antonio.
You hissed another warning, Im a stray, understand that you pampered kit, as a stray I dont have time to look my best because Im too busy trying not to die. I have to be harsh at times, I have to be firm, I cant let my guard down because anything could happen to you as a stray. You wont even understand being you live as a house cat, you have all you need, you dont have to fight to get what you need to live. After you had finished Gilbert had finally seem to realize the situation and hissed at Francis, too.
Yeah, Francis, you dont understand vhat ____ vent zhough out zhere! I can only imagine, Ive only been zhere for two weeks, shes probably been out zhere most of her life if not all! So dont make fun of her! Francis whimpered and backed down as Antonio looked at you curiously as Gilbert padded over to you a placed his muzzle to your shoulder as if to calm you. Even though Gilbert never seen you angered he figured the subject of underestimating the life of a stray bugged you, not to mention his friend wasnt at all being polite and considerate, and somehow he knew what to do to calm you.
Smelling the familiar smell of Gilbert you understood he wanted you calm, knowing that you couldnt just run off now you did as what he wanted and calmed down. When you calmed down Gilbert sat next to you, motioning with his tail that it was alright for Antonio to come. Antonio instantly grinned a kitty grin and pounced over to where you were, smelling you and observing you like Francis had except he had no perverted thoughts. Chica, youre really good at staying hidden! I have to say, Ive never met a chica like you! Youre so fast and smart and clever! I tried to track you down for Gilbert but sometimes your scent would vanish! But, whyd you run away when we tried to get you?
You looked at him quietly, you knew Gilbert was watching you now, as well as Francis, all wondering the question that Antonio had asked. With a calm voice you answered with honesty, I dont belong here, Im a stray, and being a stray means that I have to keep moving. I would have left the day after I got here to find a more rural area but I had met Gilbert, so I stayed in order to make sure he returned home, knowing full well he wasnt meant to live out here like I do. The process of adapting to a strays life takes months, and during those months you get hurt and starve, I didnt want that for Gilbert because he still had a chance. So, when I found you guys I took Gilbert to you and left so I could prepare to leave. But when I saw you guys search for me I figured you were looking for the soccer ball, I understand I was wrong about that but I still wanted to return it. Now that I have I should be taking my leave and move to some place more rural where itd be easier to catch my own food and lower the chance of finding competition or danger. Antonio and Francis were quite surprised at how professional you sounded, they had expected you to snarl it out like you had snarled at Francis, wasnt that what strays did? Though Gilbert looked at you with sadness.
But, you didnt even say auf wiedersehen
You shook your head and looked at him with gentle eyes, I did, you just didnt hear it.
Gilbert placed his muzzle on your shoulder once more until he backed up with his eyes wide with an idea, Hey, vhy not you live here vith me? Im sure my owner vouldnt mind having you! You looked at him with shocked eyes and moved back a bit, with uncertainty, I
I dont think thatd be a good idea, Im a stray; not a house cat. Ive gotten acquainted with the wild, thats my home now.
Gilbert gave you a glare, and the two other cats there stayed quiet seeing that this was conversation just for the two of you, ____, I know you dont vant to live as a stray, sure itd take a while to adapt but at least youd be safe und you vouldnt have to vorry anymore. Und Im sure Prussia vould understand if you act like a stray at first, but vith time Im sure youd be fine as a house cat. Zhe house vill keep you varm on vinter nights und protect you from danger, I could fight off any danger, but youd have to be here. You were touched by the words, because they were caring and they did hold truth but before you could answer another cats voice was heard, an unfamiliar voice that placed you on guard, making you lower yourself to a crouch to attack if needed.
Vhats vith all zhe noise out here? I can hear you guys from inside
vho is she? The cat that had enter the yard was gray fur tinted in a bluish touch had the same accent as Gilbert had, though even if this cat looked nothing like Gilbert the smell this cat had was nearly identical with the white cat beside you. And as you realized this must be a relative to Gilberts that tom had went into a crouch, one that should skill and technique that only a stray or fighter would know how to use, this tom thought you were a threat with warning and planning forming in his sharp blue eyes.
Quickly, before anyone could react, you straightened up and curled around Gilbert as you looked at the other tom, This must be a relative of yours, I can smell the nearly identical scents the two of you have even if you dont look the least bit similar. Brother, I would guess, seeing that he is about the same age as you, younger even. A younger brother, am I right, Gilbert? There was a silence in the air, ones of confusion and surprise and one of pride. Gilbert was looking at you with pride, not surprised that you had figured that out and gave a nod while the other three looked at you with surprise and confusion on how you were so observant to figure it out.
Yep, zhats my kleinen bruder, Ludwig. He und his owner lives here, too. You gave a nod and walked over to the other tom with a walk that showed no threat but also showed that you were going to observe him and that he should be prepared. As he sat up straight you brushed around him, your fur barely touching his, as you learned his scent and say the differences between him and his brothers to extended detail. You looked at his strange cover, it looked nearly as identical as Gilberts though unlike Gilberts it wasnt ripped or shredded but instead very neat and whole. Blue eyes, stern to the look and the frown on the muzzles as this tom held himself up high, to show he held strength, that he held power, that he would fight. You could tell, that behind his neat short fur that he had muscle, strength not common found in house cats.
After a few circles around him you halted and sat right next to him to look at the BTT Cats and said bluntly, I like him. Gilbert instantly crouched down, as if he was going to attack his own brother, Vhat? You just met him! You rolled your eyes at the childish jealousy Gilbert was holding and noticed Francis and Antonio whispering to themselves and taking glances at you.
Your brother, Ludwig, is obviously an amazing cat. Just look at him, he holds himself like warrior getting ready for battle, that there is something hard to find in a house cat, very admirable. And I can tell his has the strength to fight and win a battle victoriously with any cat, Im sure. His eyes, bright blue, beautiful if not rare color to find on a cat, and the way they are so sharp and stern, if I werent a stray Id be intimated and fear him. He is not an ordinary house cat, that is for sure, and that there is something worth wild. Youve got some little brother, Gilbert. You could tell Ludwig was feeling heat on his cheek by your flattering but Gilbert didnt at all seem pleased with your claim.
Hey! Im just as good as him! Im strong, too, you saw me fight zhat dog vith you! Im zhe one vho taught Ludwig how to fight to begin vith! Und I have pure vhite snow fur und red eyes, zhats even rarer zhan plain old blue eyes und normal gray fur! Und Ive known you longer! Gilbert continued to rant on how he was better than Ludwig as he just sighed at how childish the white tom was acting.
You simply tilted your head to the side and said in a sweet, calm voice, Youre not just as good as Ludwig. Youre better, Gilbert, at least to me. That made everyone to pause as Gilbert blushed darkly at your comment. Antonio thought that your comment was absolutely adorable and Francis thought your words were romantic, a fairy tale, and Ludwig didnt even want to think but felt happy for Gilbert either way.
Then another scent filled your sense, human scents. You instantly turned around and backed up towards Gilbert as four humans came out speaking the words human speak, though a normal full born stray wouldve not understood them but you werent that and understood easily.
What is going on out ere? All these meowings are getting a bit annoying. Oh~! C'est un chat! Look ere, Prussia, seems like theres a new kitty at your door step! You hissed out at the French man, he had bright blue eyes and wavy blonde hair that was shoulder length, and he smelled exactly like Francispampered and rosy.
One of the men behind him had green eyes, vibrant and full of life as his hair curled in wild ways of brown, Oh, seems like a feisty one! Is it a gato or a gata? You understood that question all too well and was about to dash away when the French man picked you up to see your
parts, Oui, C'est une fille! And might I say a beautiful fille if er fur wasnt so dirty. You just had about enough of this.
You hissed viciously, like you had at Francis earlier, and clawed at him and attempted to bite into his hands, Ah! Shes attacking! elp! Prussia, you take er! The French man practically threw you to Prussias arms and as he caught you he yelled at France that he caused all the trouble. You, acting on instinct of not understanding the situation, lifted you claws to sink into his flesh, but you stopped.
You sniffed the air, it was Gilberts scent, identical in every way except for the fact it was on a human body. You lowered you paws and retracted your claws as you stared at Prussia, this must be Gilberts owner, and you werent surprised to see silvery-white hair on top of the mans head and sharp red eyes that were bright. And all you did was stare, not really sure how to react to Gilberts owner.
Prussia, well, he didnt know why you turned from a murderous kitty to a calm cat. He figured it was his awesomeness doing its magic when he heard a meow come from you, it sound so soft and adorable that he could help but pull you into a hug where you meowed again, though in complaint since the hug was blocking your oxygen. Look, she like zhe awesome me! You guys just arent awesome enough! Yep, this was defiantly Gilberts owner. Though, as the amount of oxygen intact lowered you honest thought of clawing Prussia, Gilbert noticed that and pawed at his owners pants and meowed a warning.
Prussia gave Gilbert a confused look and realized he was holding you too tightly and realized his tight grip and turned it into a gentle hold. You gave a sigh of relief and meow a thank you as Prussia scratched the back of your ear. Gilbert was worried for you, thinking that youd be uncomfortable with the human contact, but instead became quite surprised when you started to purr and encourage the petting.
Quoi?! Why does zhe petit chat like you? Im irresistible! Upon understanding Frances words you became annoyed at him and you twisted around slightly and hissed at the Frenchman, causing the Spaniard and the Prussian to laugh while the other cats watched with awe at your performance.
Seems like the gata likes Prussia only! Dont take it to heart, France, its not like you dont get turned down every day! Once again the Spanish and Prussian man laughed as France pouted, looking hurt.
Bruder, do you know vere zhis cat came from? She looks like a stray; ve should take her to an animal shelter vhere she could get adopted. Another man with a German accent spoke, with his hair golden blonde and eyes blue with a sharp look as he spoke to his brother. That must be Ludwigs owner, no doubt about it.
Prussia gave a whine before he lifted you up to his face and cuddled with you, But Vest! Shes so niedlich und she likes me! Cant ve keep her? Vest rolled his eyes and crossed his arms, as if to show there isnt going to be an argument, Bruder, ve already have two cats to take care of, vhy vould ve need anozher one?
You could see fake tears come to Prussias eyes before he held you up towards Vest as you had a stare down with the German, Please, Vest? Bitte, bitte, bitte! See, even Gilbert vants her to stay! I bet Ludwig vould, too! You stopped your staring contest with Vest and looked downward to see Gilbert pawing at Vest and meowing begs like Prussia was, it really is owner like pet.
Though, you could tell Vest wouldnt falter at their begs but before he could say another no you brought up a charm, if Gilbert wanted you to stay, saying that you still had a chance, then you could at least try, right?
You brought up your paws and slightly pawed the air, as if you wanted to paw Vest because he was still too far away from your reach, and gave cute meows that sounded a tad bit of a beg as you let your (eye color) eyes sparkle wide and glaze over to make them shine. You, as well as everyone else, saw the way Vest was faltering in composer at your begs though the shocked looks from the BTT Cats showed that they didnt at all expect you to know how to use your cute kitty charm to get your way.
Oh, look Vest, she likes you, too! Go on, carry her! Prussia then handed you over to Vest and you could feel that Vest was awkward in holding you, not really sure as to what he was doing. So you shifted yourself and started to stand on his hands and placed your forepaws on his shoulder before placed your head under his chin, as if to hide yourself. You heard a squeal from nearby, you were pretty sure it was from France, but your focus was to try and convince Vest into letting you stay.
You gave a meow and moved your head to your paws as you tried to climb onto his shoulder, that caused Vest to pick you up and hold you correctly and comfortable in his arms, like you were a baby. He then gently started to scratch under your chin and you purred nearly instantly, showing that you were enjoying the attention that he was giving.
Pas juste! Why does zhe petit chat like Germany? Oh, poo, why doesnt anyone like moi? You knew France was complaining once more but you were actually too busy enjoying the way Germany was petting you to pay attention.
So, Vest, can ve keep her? Pleeeeeaaaaaassssseeeee? Once again you could hear begging from the Prussia and Gilbert, you felt Germany stop petting you and you meow in complaint as you pawed at his hands as if to say you wanted him to pet you more. Germany once again started petting you and said with a sigh, Alright, I guess ve can keep her. But youre responsible of her, vait, I dont zhink zhats a good idea, youre not very responsible. I guess Ill be taking care of her zhen, she does seem to like me more anyways.
Prussia gave a hurt look, Vhat? I can, too, take care of her! Im very responsible, and she liked zhe awesome me first!
Germany just rolled his eyes and walked inside where you were welcomed with nice warmth as you took in the new surroundings of a home as the other three men and four cats walked in. Germany then set you down onto the flat floor where you padded a bit before you walked over to Gilbert and brushed pelts with him before staying at his side and looked at those around you as Gilbert flushed.
Oh! Look, Vest! She likes Gilbert! Not zhat Im surprised, my cat is awesome after all, I wonder if zheyre going to have kittens togezher. You didnt seem at all phased by what Prussia had said and just liked your paw a bit as Gilbert laid down on the floor and place his paws over his eyes in embarrassment; you didnt really mind the thought of becoming Gilberts mate, maybe one day.
Bruder, stop talking about stuff like zhat, ve need to get her cleaned up first.
Ohonhonhon~ Zhats not going to be easy, Germany, er fur is very dirty and cats dont like water. But Ill elp eizher way.
Si! Si! Ill help, too! I want to get to know the gata better! Maybe we can think of a nombre for her!
Spain then grabbed you up suddenly and raced inside deeper into the home as the other followed behind towards the bathroom to get you cleaned up.
Prussia laughed as he used a towel to dry your wet fur as you meowed in annoyance and when he lifted the towel away from you and placed the towel in the laundry bin you shook yourself to make your fur comfortable. The other three men surrounded you as Germany picked you up as France spoke once more, So what do we name zhe petit chat? After that Prussia and Spain started saying out names, none in which were your name.
You pounced out of Germanys hand and ran out of the bathroom and into the living room and looked around. Gilbert came right behind you asking what you were looking for. Though you didnt answer and pounced on top of a chair and onto a desk as the other cats and men came in, curious as to what you were doing. You walked over to what you remember was a computer, thankfully it was on and already had Microsoft Word open, it seemed to have a document already written though that just made it easier even if there were other words on it.
____, vhat are you doing? Zhats a computer, humans type of it and it forms vords. Gilbert explained, though you already knew so, and pounced onto the chair near you.
Yeah, I know, I remember. You carefully used your paws with intense focus in order to spell one word just right.
Then you heard Prussia laugh, Oh, looks like our little katze is interested in the computer. He then lifted you away from the computer but stopped short at what you wrote on the computer and stared with wide eyes.
Hey, amigo, whats wrong?
Prussia placed you back down and waved a hand to say for the other men to come over, and they were also surprised at what you had wrote, ____. You had typed down your name and as they tried to comprehend how you did it you just licked your paw.
Vell, it seems like our awesome katze already has a name. ____ it is. Prussia picked you up, it seemed like they werent going to question how you were able to type down the words, and took something out of his pocket. A collar. It was different compared to Gilberts and Ludwigs, it didnt look like the German flag but instead had two black stripes and a white on in the middle, not to mention an eagle with a crown on its head imprinted in the white background. Zhis is a collar of zhe awesome Prussian flag, its yours, vell put in zhe tag vith zhe address und your name on it later. And with those words he placed the collar around your neck, signifying you were now a house cat, and a new life awaited you.
Bruder, I zhink ve should go take her to zhe vet. She needs to get her shots und make sure zhat her tail vill heal properly, zhe wound dont seem zhat old. Germany said as he grabbed a jacket and keys while Prussia just nodded.
France, Spain, take care of the cats while were gone. Dont make a mess of it, Vest would be pissed. France and Spain nodded as Prussia carried you out and you waved a small goodbye to Gilbert, though he didnt notice because he was staring at the computer screen in awe.
Hours had passed and you were already back at your new home, in the last few hours you had went to the vet, gotten your shots, went to the pet store and your new owners bought you cat things like a bed and a few cat toys you were interested in. Now you were laying in your new (favorite color) cat bed trying to fall asleep when you smelt a familiar scent, Gilbert.
You opened your eyes and looked up to see Gilbert walking over looking a bit uncertain, you knew he was going to ask you something, Yes, Gilbert, what do you want? Your voice wasnt at all harsh but it still make Gilbert look more hesitant, knowing that you knew that he was going to question you.
Um, ____, were you ever a house cat? I mean, youre an awesome stray but when we went into that meat place you allowed that girl to pet you and all. Im pretty sure a regular stray wouldnt allow that, let alone get close to a human. And earlier today, you knew exactly what to do to get your way with the humans, knew how to manipulate them with acts, only house cats know how to do that. And you already knew what a computer was; let alone how to form words so humans could understand. Strays cant do that, right? And strays
dont understand humans
you used to be a house cat, right?
You hummed to yourself and closed your eyes before your shifted in your bed, curling up more, Im proud of you, Gilbert. Youre right, I wasnt always a stray, in actuality I was only a stray for a year, I just have a better ability of adapting then most house cats since my old owner didnt pamper me as much as some. Gilbert laid down in front of you, letting his paws touch your bed, So, your owner abandoned you?
You opened your eyes for a second to look at him before closing them, No, my owner loved me very much and allowed me a lot of independence. Though, my owner got into a car accident and died on her way to the hospital. My owner had passed me down to her nephew though, he didnt really liked me and kicked me out, abandoned me, though it isnt my owners fault, she didnt know nor will she ever. I love my old owner very much, like she did with me, though nothing will let me forget the things Ive experience out there. The fear, the pain, and the feeling of lost and loneliness. A lot can happen in one year, a lot of terrible and hurtful things; I learned that the hard way and I had to learn to survive like a wild stray. Either fight or be died.
Gilbert looked at you with a sort of sadness, he may never really understand what horrors you went through but at least he could give you something you have lost, a home, company, and love. ____, I may not be the best cat out there but I promise Ill be by your side forever, so you wont have to be lonely anymore, because I know how that feels. Heh, we could be lonely together. Here youll be loved, no doubt about it.
You felt yourself smile before you opened your eyes once more and gave Gilbert a lick on his muzzle while saying a soft, Thank you, Gilbert, Ich liebe dich. before you curled back up and tried to sleep once more. Gilbert, well, he took your kiss to heart and flushed before he looked at you with a loving look and he went inside of your cat bed to curl up around you like he had that cold night when you had first met him. He placed a paw around you and gave you a lick behind your ear before he rest his head and fell asleep alongside you. And the last words you heard were, Ich liebe dich auch.
So, your life has turned a new page, and a new chapter was made in your lifeone of love, one of care, one of joy, and one without the sense of loneliness with Gilbert by your side, now and forever.
