But I'm a Puppy Person

Fate brought me here.  The pain in my shoulder wont stop.  I wish I had something to eat so I could heal properly.  At the moment healing is not at the forefront of my mind.

I limp down the alley in dog form, it hurts less and I find it draws more attention from humans.  Yesterday a little girl shared her ice cream with me before her mother dragged her away-I bet she got dinner when she got home.  I bet if I could get someone to take me into one of their homes, I could hide better from my master.  

I barely know where I am, I just kept running until I couldn't anymore.  I think I'm safe, but it's so difficult to tell who's who in this part of town.  

I think I'm being followed.

Normal humans have pets, right?  It shouldn't be this difficult to have someone take me home.  I wonder as I wander: what are my options?  

A shelter?  Human shelters are for transients, and if they saw my scars they'd be too frightened.  An animal shelter would put me in a cage.  I don't like the thought of being cooped up, if my master found me before another human took me home I'd be trapped.  I suppose I'll just have to look cute and wait for another child to share her ice cream.
I decide that the best way to meet people is to stop hiding.  I just need to keep a sharp eye out.  I start to walk out of the alley, but I have to get past the other transients.  As far as I can smell they're just humans.  

I hold my breath, trying to avoid their stench.  But it's no use, the smell of internal rot, body odor, and box wine permeate the transients part of the alley.  The smell gets all over me, covers me to through the skin, settling beneath my fur.
Is this my life now?  I've never felt so alone.  No wonder we're supposed to have masters, I can't fend for myself out here!  No, I can't go back.  I can't fight.  I'm so clumsy, lanky, small.

Another smell catches my attention.  Almost bubblegum, with a hint of lasagna.  My mouth starts to water as I run towards the smell.  I run straight into a dumpster.  Talk about luck!  The smell was rotten food from a dive restaurant.  I sit and weep, taking no notice of the smell or the ache in my stomach.

But soon I hear a commotion on the sidewalk.  I peak around the corner, afraid of a human or someone worse having a melt-down.  What I see is a young human kicking a machine, I think it gives out the green paper that they deem so important.  

She walks off in anger, but empty handed.  As she stomps past me I get a wiff of her; it's so sweet!  I have to stop her, someone who smells that good can't be that bad.

Attack on Cravat! Chapter 2
"_____." "______." "Oh gosh... ______!" "_______!" "Five more minutes..." you mumbled sleepily, burrowing further into the soft covers of your bed. "Ah, please ______, wake up!" You waved a tired hand at the voice that tried to summon you from beyond your cozy bed. "I'll get up in a sec, okay?" "No, you don't underst-...Ymir!" Abruptly, you were torn from your covers. You gasped as your skin was exposed to the cold air. "Noooo~~!" you moaned as you were unceremoniously dumped onto the cold hard wooden floor. You opened your eyes just a tiny bit, to find Ymir standing above you, a death glare painted across her face. Behind her, Christa looked

 Setting her suitcase down she looked around her new room, it was bleak and bland. One bed, one dresser, two drawers, one closet and a desk and a window over the bed, curtains closed. They were all the same color, white; her room was a light shade of blue and the carpet shag white. She sighed and couldn’t wait to decorate it to look like her old room back at her old home, which was across the country. Oh how she missed it so, her two friends gave her a goodbye party that still gives tears to her eyes, and her classmates did the same. It surprised her so much they didn’t even show signs of liking her in the beginning but said that

Can't Sleep (Levi x Reader) SnK
A loud thunderclap sounded outside of your room as the lightning lit up your room so you could make out all the furniture in it. It was a small and very simple room, as you were only a graduate cadet, a rookie in the castle. You turned to one side and closed your eyes tight praying you would fall asleep but to no avail. You turned on your back again and looked up to the ceiling. You along with the rest of the top 10 of the 104th cadets, excluding Annie, had decided to join the Scouting Regiment and tomorrow morning you were to leave for the first outing. It brought a sick feeling to your gut. You were so nervous. But not for yourself. You w
