"____-san, which one can I take back?" Kiku asked
"I want to keep Americat" I said and petted him.
"As you wish" Kiku took Iggycat into his arms and went out. Americat jumped onto my laps and curled into a fluffy ball. I stroked his ear as he purred loudly.
In next few days I learnt lot of things about my new pet. Few times I saw him saving birds from other cats or eating my mcdonald’s take outs or watching superhero movies and listening country music. Just like his name, he was all american!
"Americat! Snack time!" I jumped onto my couch with bawl of chips and bottle of cola in my hands. The cat ran out of my bedroom and jumped on my laps. I turned on a TV and we both watched some comedy movie.
Next day was my cleaning day. Spring was coming so I decided to clean up my messy flat. I turned on my music player and started to clean. As you can imagine, not long time later I started to dance and sing loudly. Also I didn’t have a favourite type of music so I could hear some rock music or rap music or simple pop.
“Show me how to lie, you’re getting better all the time and turning all against the one is an art that’s hard to teach” I sang while I was wiping a dust off of your furniture. I heard a meowing from a table and looked at my cat.
“What? You don’t like it?” I asked and petted his head, he cocked his head to the side.
“Okay… let’s see” I checked my music player and played on of the best ‘moves like jagger’ covers.
“Is it nice?” I smiled and Americat nodded. I went back to cleaning my furniture. It took the time of three songs. Next I should clean the kitchen.
“California girls, we're unforgettable Daisy Dukes Bikinis on top, sun-kissed skin so hot will melt your popsicle. “ I putted all my dry dishes into cupboards and started doing rest of dirty dishes. The cat jumped onto a counter and watched me.
“Huh? Do you think I do look like a real California Girl?”
The cat shook his head as a no and I laughed.
“I wonder how you know how California Girl looks like” I petted him again. When kitchen was all clean and nice I walked into my bathroom, cat, of course, followed me.
“Near a tree by a river there's a hole in the ground where an old man of Aran goes around and around” I continued cleaning. I got this feeling he was watching me carefully. Little creepy but I kept going. Next I grabbed vacuum cleaner and cleaned whole floor “Would you go with me if we rode the clouds together, could you not look down forever, If you were lighter than a feather. Oh, and if I set you free, would you go with me?”
In the corner of my eyes I saw Americat… dancing? Probably he was dancing in a middle of living room. I giggled as he bounced on his paws and his tail waving back and forth. Yeah… power of country music.
Finally my work was over. I lay on the perfect clean floor. Americat trotted to me and sat in opposite me.
“Done! We can relax now” I smiled and he meowed. “We should watch some movie or something, shouldn’t we?”
He meowed again and rubbed his head on my stomach. I took him into my arms and hugged him. His eyes brighten up and he started licking my face all over. After that he pressed his head at my lips. I chuckled a little and kissed him on his head and his little nose.
“You like to cuddle, huh?” I rubbed back of his ear as he purred. “Come on, it’s time for dinner”
Rest of the day we spent on watching TV and cuddling. I was so happy it was weekend and I didn’t have to go work the next day. I was exhausted! I don’t know when I fell asleep with Americat rested on my chest.
Next day I woke up because of the weight on me. I opened my eyes and saw a guy on me.
“What the-… ?” I shouted which woke up the person
“Huh…? ____!” it was Alfred. He grinned and kissed my lightly on the lips.
“Al?! What are you doing here?” I shouted again
“Oh, that!” he sat up and helped me sat as well “I was the cat… I got changed last night. I don’t know how that happened. One day me and Eyebrow changed into cats and ta-da!” he laughed and hugged me
“Yeah, and know I need to thank you of taking care of us. I love you, ___, so, so much!”
I blushed madly. He what? What did he said!?
“I know it’s all sudden but… I really love you”
“I love you too” I hugged him back. It was nice… since his stomach rumbled.
“Can we go to mcdonald’s?” he asked
I just sighed and nodded.
Later that day, when we went back home from dinner we found out my flat was all messy… and robbed!
“What the hell!” I yelled “I spent all day at cleaning!”
“Someone might be in here” Alfred putted his hand on my shoulder “Stay here and I will check out”
When he walked into my bedroom I turned around, wanting to close front doors but I felt someone behind me and before I’d react someone putted a hand over my mouth.
“Be quiet” someone hissed into my ear. It was a male for sure. What else I would do in such a situation? I stepped on his foot as hard as I could then break free.
“You slut!” he wanted to punch me but…
“Don’t call my girlfriend a slut, you son of a bitch!”
After that sentence the burglar got punched by a baseball bat. He passed out on the floor.
“____, call a police”
“I should kill the guy right away” I growled when the next day I looked at my flat. Everything was in a mess. Alfred laughed and wrapped his arms around me from behind.
“Don’t worry, babe~” he kissed my cheek “this time I can help you”
“Yeah… “ I smiled slightly “But still… I should kill him”
“C’mon, you should stop thinking about him and think a little about me” he turned me around and kissed me which I gladly returned.
“Now, let’s start!” he nuzzled my neck and pulled away.
“Yep… “ I grabbed paper towels and some chemicals “we should sing as well… it will speed up cleaning”
“Uh-hum…” he took the tools from my hands and waited for me to turn on my player
“May not be able to fly but i'll take you on adventures may not move at the speed of light but if you need me, I'll be there. Ah ooooh! Save the day when you start to loose hope. Ah ooooh! I'll never be a superhero~!” we sang along.
