Minifill - Stay

(Anonymous)
When she finds me I am cold and alone, my fur is wet and I am tired.

She is warm and soft. “Hey there, little guy.”

I miss my mother.

The woman used to be strong, but she’s not anymore. She’s hurt now. I know this because she is like my mother. My mother was strong and warm and soft, but then the monster came and then she was gone and I was alone.

She tells me she will take care of me, and I believe her, because she is like my mother and my mother did not leave me because she wanted to.

The woman has another human that is hers. He is kind to her and to me. Pets my head and scratches my chin and tells me I am good for the woman.

But he is leaving, and I do not understand why.

“It’ll probably only be for a few weeks,” he says to her. I am in her arms and I cannot see him but I can hear him. “But there are relief groups leaving for Vancouver tomorrow and--”

She does not let him speak. “I know. I understand.” Her heart is beating so fast. “I’ll be here when you get back.”

The man presses his face against hers and I am pressed between the two of them and it is uncomfortable but I do not want to move.

The woman does not want her man to leave. I do not think her man wants to leave either.

But he is leaving.

(I do not understand)

And then he is gone.

I feel the woman begin to breathe quickly and her chest rattles but not in the same way as mine. She holds me close to her face. I feel wetness on my back and it reminds me of long ago and at the same time not at all.

Her grip around me is tight. She doesn’t want me to leave.

It’s okay, it’s okay, don’t worry. I’ll stay.

Gaaaaah. The Humane Society should hire you to do commercials for them. I totally teared up.

Ha! I'm seeing it now, Commander Shepard talking about her favorite kitties on the citadel, Sarah Mclachlan playing in the background. Perfect!

Sorry I made you cry though. Didn't mean to! Okay, maybe I did a little.

Thanks for reading!

A very, very emotional OP here. Wow. I didn't know how much a short minifill could tug at those heartstrings ;___; The ending, how it tied the tears to the beginning... the simple POV of the cat, the honesty and emotion in it - really, words cannot begin to describe how awestruck I am, and how grateful. Thank you so very much for this gem.

And...

I LOVE YOU FOREVER

Aw, OP, I'm so happy! I wasn't sure if it was exactly what you were looking for, but it just came to me. I'm not sure where it came FROM, but my ten year old self who spent her days writing cat stories was super excited about it.

Anyway, I'm really glad you liked it!

And...

I LOVE YOU FOREVER TOO OP!
