Here I sit amongst the boxes again, waiting for that human. Kaitlyn, she told me her name was. Kaitlyn, I sit waiting for Kaitlyn. To amuse myself I gently begin to hum a new aria that was in my head. I didn't notice it when Kaitlyn arrived and sat down across from me. I finished after holding a long final note. I opened my eyes in shock when the strange noise began. That was when I noticed Kaitlyn there. She was sitting there slapping her hands together with a smile on her face.
"That was beautiful," she says after she stops with the odd slapping thing.  "I didn't know you could sing so well," she continued.
"S-singing?" I asked, trying to mimic the human word. "I was only humming," I replied. At least I think that was the right word for it.
"Well, I guess you started to sing without realizing it, because you were singing when I got here," Kaitlyn replied slowly.  I snorted lightly at her. She just smiled back.  After a moment, "Can I do some more drawings of you? Please?"  She looked at me with big, pleading eyes. I cocked my head at her in slight confusion, and then it clicked in. Oh, the thing with the pencil, and paper and such. I did my best imitation of a human smile. Due to the fact Kaitlyn partially winced I shouldn't try that anymore.
"Of course," I ended up simply replying. She smiled happily back at me and took out her pencil? That's what it is isn't it? Yes, pencil. She took out her pencil and began to sketch again. She asked me to do a few poses for her and I complied. After she finished with that we spent time talking and getting to understand each other a little better.
Long after the sky turned dark, and the stars had appeared in the sky, Kaitlyn's eyelid began to droop. I looked at her confusedly as for an explanation. She smiled faintly, "You don't sleep do you?" she said quietly. I puzzled it over and shook my head.
"Well," she began, "humans need to rest and recharge, every 12 hours or so. And when we don't get enough sleep our bodies begin to tell us that we need to. Mostly by making us shut our eyes and yawn. Sadly, I haven't gotten enough sleep lately so I'm very tired," I blinked at her slowly. Humans were so strange sometime. I thrived in the night; I did not SLEEP through it. Kaitlyn yawned again. I feared my human friend would abandon me though. I nosed her gently as to encourage her to get home safely before she collapsed. She smiled up at me. Then suddenly her eyes light up with a strange light.
"Hey," she said, "How about you come over and spend the night in my apartment? Seeing as you don't have a place to sleep and such…" she trailed off, but continued to look at me with that strange, hopeful gaze in her eyes. I snorted lightly at her. I did have a place to stay! I had the whole forest! Still I didn't want to deny my new friend….
"All-right… I guess," I found myself saying. Kaitlyn's whole face lit up with joy. She stood up, and motioned for me to follow. She smiled at me again and started walking. I sighed. This new situation was going to be….complicated.

This was awesome~
I love how you gave her an apartment, I pictured her living in one on campus or around it. I'd love to live in an apartment as a college student. X3
Also, you kept them both in character! Especially Calil, he is naive as ever~ Not really knowing exactly what these humans do. XD I love how you wrote that he attempted to smile. Reminds me of toothless on how to train your dragon.
This was cool, I love it! You did a good job~ :heart:

Oh yes! I forgot to mention Kaitlyn has freckles. Calil calls those "skin spots".

Awww thanks so much. :D
Oh oops. Well I'm glad to know that you liked that idea. My cousin lives in an apartment. XD
Oh yay! I was afraid I would mess that up terribly. Oh I didn't think of it like that, but now that you mention it, it is kinda like that. XD
Awww thanks so much :iconbigheartplz:

Ahhh. Good to know. X3

Calil is referred to as a demon, but he dislikes that term as it is usually said out of spite.
What is he? Well, no one really knows. He could be some mishap experiment, a new species that has just evolved, or the last of an old species that has died out. I tried to keep him vague and interesting. ;3 I want to see what the rest of the writers make him out to be. Honestly, he can be whatever the writer likes.

I myself based his appearnce off of the Dartmoor Beast. A strange creature that appeared around Dartmoor, England. Look it up on youtube, it kind of looks like a black lion running in the plain. It was on the show fact or faked. It kind of fancinated me so yea. X3
