“Well I’m not gonna sit around here and nosebleed while you get changed so Imma just go check on that coffee.” You thought as you silently slipped off the bed and trotted back out of his room to the kitchen. “Coffee, coffee, coffee.” You muttered internally as you picked up the pace and ran at the bench, throwing yourself up onto it and sliding everywhere as you made your way towards the coffee mug.
“C/N?” You heard Shinsou call from the bedroom, followed by a pause of realization then a louder more urgent call. “C/N! STAY AWAY FROM MY COFFEE!” You heard him yell, immediately followed by a bang and a curse.
You dipped your head into his cup quickly and lapped at the deliciously hot beverage.
“Oh god this is so good!” You purred.
“C/N!” Shinsou screeched as he slid out of his bedroom door in his school socks. He had managed to get his school shirt on but hadn’t buttoned it up yet and hadn’t quite gotten to the pants part so he was still in his boxer shorts.
“Fuck, he’s coming! Drink faster!!” You screamed urgently internally. “Ah!” You hissed as the scalding hot coffee burnt your sensitive tongue.
“STOP!” You heard him yell again and you quickly stopped drinking and threw yourself off the bench and towards the lounge, bouncing as you hit the top cushion and cartwheeling onto the seat cushion before rolling off onto the floor in a heap.
Upon seeing your theatrical dismount from the bench Shinsou forgot to be angry and burst out laughing, running back around the bench to pick you up off the floor.
“Shit.” He laughed, wiping a tears from his eye. “That was hilarious, are you ok?”
You looked up at him as your head spun.
“Woah, what happened??” You meowed pitifully as you blinked to try and bring him back into focus.
“That’ll teach you for trying to steal my coffee you silly goofball.” He said as he rubbed your head and pulled you against his chest for a cuddle. “Ok, I really need to get ready now.” He said after holding you a little longer. “AND I’M TAKING MY COFFEE TO THE BEDROOM AND LOCKING THE DOOR!” He announced as he put you down.
“Awwww no fair!!” You meowed in protest, but you were still too dizzy to give chase so instead you staggered over to the rug and flopped down. “Man what a stack (fall).” You thought as you drifted back off to sleep.
When you woke again Shinsou had left for school and you were alone in his apartment, free to have a little snoop around.
You busied yourself checking each room and cupboard that you could open, having a little peak at how Shinsou lived but by lunchtime you were bored out of your mind.
You found an empty box in the laundry and suddenly found a deep urgent yearning to sit in it.
“Why the fuck do I all of a sudden want to sit in this box?” You thought as you padded over to it and gingerly placed your front paws in. “This feels so… right?”
After sitting in the box for a few minutes you decided to continue onto something else and wandered out to the lounge room to turn the TV on.
“MAAAAN I CAN’T EVEN GET THIS STUPID THING TO WORK!” You growled angrily, batting your paw against the remote. “Goddamn paws.”
After spending a little more time cursing at the remote and TV you decided to raid the cupboard for some snacks for lunch.
“What’s he got in there that I can eat?” You thought as you eyed the cupboard from the lounge chair.
You hopped down and trotted over to it. Putting a paw at the base of the door you tugged it open.
“Oooooo!!” You gasped excitedly when you saw all the packets of chips and biscuits on the bottom shelf. “Happy eating to meeeeee!”
You grabbed a packet of chips and dragged it out of the cupboard and onto the floor.
“Now… how to open this thing?” You muttered internally, walking around the packet with a strong look of concentration on your face. “Maybe if I jump on it?”
You backed up a bit and; standing slightly on your back legs, tucked your front paws under you and raised them up to your chin before doing a little hop jump and smacking them down on the packet.
“Hmm, that didn’t work, I’ll try again.”
Around the packet you went, bunny hopping on your back legs and occasionally pouncing on the packet with your front paws.
“I need something heavier…”
You looked up at the bench and remembered the toaster.
Nudging the packet over to the base of the bench with your nose you then clambered up onto the benchtop and pushed the toaster across the counter to the edge.
Lining it up, you then pushed the toaster off the edge with your paws and watched as it landed on the tail end of the packet, exploding the contents all over the kitchen floor.
“Aww hell yeah!”
You jumped down and pushed the toaster off the packet before happily eating the spilled chips and munching on the ones just at the opening of the packet.
You weren’t sure how long this whole ordeal had taken you but unbeknownst to you school had finished and Shinsou was on his way home.
You didn’t hear him enter the apartment because you had crawled so far into the chip packet the sound of your eating drowned out all other noises.
The first thing he saw as he rounded the kitchen bench was you, half inside the chip packet, sprawled out on the floor.
“WHAT ON EARTH!” He yelled when he saw you.
His sudden voice shocked you and you jumped violently, chip packet still over your head.
“WHAT ARE YOU DOING?!” He asked loudly, grabbing for you and the packet as he set his school bag down.
You tried to run blindly but he caught you and yanked the packet off your head. Revealing a very guilty, crumb covered cat face.
“Umm hi, you’re home early.” You meowed ashamedly.
“C/N what do I do with you?!” He asked, half exasperated, half jokingly as he brushed the crumbs off your face.
“Thanks.” You meowed, blinking as he dusted crumbs off your eyelashes.
“I’m guessing you got hungry?” He asked finally, putting you down and picking up the packet of eaten chips to inspect it. “Well…if you can’t beat them, join them.” He resigned with a sigh. “I guess I’m just not used to a cat wanting to eat human food. Are you still hungry?” He asked looking down at you.
You almost shook your head but then remembered to be as cat as possible and just turned and walked away.
“I take it that’s a no then?” Shinsou chuckled while shaking his head.
That night Shinsou had made dinner for the two of you.
“C/N!” He called from the kitchen, “dinner’s ready!”
“Say what now?? He’s made dinner for me??” You thought as you trotted out from his room.
You ran over to his legs and wrapped yourself around them, purring happily while you looked up eagerly at the plates he was holding.
“What did you make??” You asked as you hopped up on a chair next to him at the table.
